Woozy, #1-20 (1992-?) was a music, anarchist and DIY zine published by Australian Iain Mcintyre and Laura Macfarlane out of Melbourne University, and printed by Melbourne DIY printer Pulp and Pigment.
Published roughly quarterly, Woozy is described by the editors as follows: “…the purpose of Woozy is to get people to look at and consider alternative ideas, not unthinkingly take on a set of rigid, leftist rules’. The zine included a range of articles with a particular focus on anarchism, squatting, punk and rock music.
Woozy was anticopyright for other non-profit groups, although some artists’ contributions were copyrighted.
