Published by Barry 'Boz' Soltz in the 1980's, Surburban Relapse covered the American punk scene with interviews with bands such as Red Kross and Meat Puppets. However, the zine placed a special emphasis on Florida culture. Included were articles on Florida 60's punk and an interview with Florida native Herschell Gordon Lewis, who states that Florida was indeed the birthplace of 'Gore' films. There's also coverage of local bands of the time such as Charlie Pickett and the Eggs, Gay Cowboys In Bondage and Sector Four. The zine had an extensive record review section, live show reviews and a news section that carried information on Florida zines like Kitchen Sink News, Tropical Depression and Wilson's Wonder Circus.
The same people involved in Suburban Relapse also ran the independent record label Sublapse.
