Crystal Blue Persuasion
Crystal Blue Persuasion is a zine by Rae, published in Minnesota, U.S.A..
This zine was released in the early 1990's, and was mainly devoted to independent punk music of that era. There are reviews of bands such as Cockpit, Fifth Column, Mommyheads, The Reverend Horton Heat and Dead Milkmen. There is also an article entitled, "Why I Wanna Move to Cicely, Alaska", in which the editor lists her top ten reasons to move to Cicely, Alaska, all based around the fictional characters in the television show Northern Exposure, despite the fact that "Theatre is Life; Film is Art; Television is Furniture". Crystal Blue Persuasion also includes reviews of the zines Sweet Like Eve, Get Off My Property, and William Wants a Doll.
Crystal Blue Persuasion is included in the Sophia Smith Collection of zines at Smith College.
