Fake Life is perzine published by paper-xerox-staples distro and press from Florida, U.S.A.
It has a strong emphasis on story telling which are generally masked as show reports. The writers are older and having grown out of the scene find themselves generally out of place maneuvering in the kinds of clubs and shows they once thrived it. The writing concerns growing up and what it means to them be still be punk or not be punk, to be in a scene or not in a scene. Maximum Rock and Roll said it was "...sloppy and trashy...but pretty good."
The zine also runs articles about black politics in America from a feminist perspective, a variety of comix and murder fiction. Contributors include Mike Baker. The zine is currently on hiatus but an new issue is rumored to be in the woorks.
