A freesheet that ran for four issues between 1996-1997 in Dublin, Ireland. Written by Karl Whitney.

Tackled diverse, ostensibly mainstream topics, such as the revolutionary import of characters on the Australian soap Neighbours, a history of Warner Brothers animation, a history of the Scottish soft-drink Irn Bru, and addressed local and international indie music, with some nods to the local punk scene.

It had a couple of recurrent features: Maurice Mouths Off: An angry media analyst rages at the contemporary world. Indie Ghetto: Fictional news about small-time indie no-marks.

Produced on a basic desktop publishing package, it was intended to stand out visually from other DIY zines. However, as it was - like the others zines - just a monochrome A4 sheet of paper, folded down the middle, it probably didn't stand out at all. Had a print run of 100-150 copies.
