While I'm not a huge fan of all the content found within Down and Out the writing is spot on. Sam doesn't fall back on any lazy 'punk' form like a lot of other zines, which seem to be free of any real literary effort and clearly no attempt at editing. Sam in contrast, obviously expends a lot of effort here, and reminds you that this is a written publication, with a focus on well.. the written word. A refreshing read, informed from an authentic outsider perspective on underground and abrasive music. Very high quality, and one of the only good Australian zines left. From Hobart no less.
