It’s been around this time every year when I’ve put out another volume of Youth & Rust, but it’s been feeling more like a chore than it should, so last year was the final year for Y/R titled zines.
Even though this is the end of these zines in this format, Y/R is more than I thought it would become and I have more on the go than ever before.
All of these can be viewed on Issuu. There’s no elegant way to link to all of these individually, so just go here.

Youth & Rust Vol. 3 is basically sold out now, so here’s the online version.
This is likely to be the last Youth & Rust zines in this style—never put out a full size, two part zine, it’s a nightmare to explain and budget.
More photos of bands, more photos of everyone I like. The cover of Youth is Eyehategod at MDF. The cover of Rust is a pile of rocks on Crawford St.
Pretty much everything I’ve put out is up on Issuu. Including all three volumes of Youth & Rust, the Siesta Nouveaux memorial, both Not Dead Yet zines, and a bunch of split zines with my friends.
New things are on the way.
WHAT WAS DONE
After the first Not Dead Yet, we made a zine called TEXAS DEATH, with photos of Chaos in Tejas and Not Dead Yet.
After the second Not Dead Yet, we made a zine called WHAT WAS DONE, with photos of NDY, by seven different photographers from the Toronto area.
Legal size, with over-sized kraft paper/card stock covers, 32 pages, black and white. $3
We’ve only got a few left after yesterday’s show at the 460, but the few we do have left are going to come with a copy of TEXAS DEATH.
BY THE WAY: the YOUTH & RUST online store just opened. The prices are more of a suggestion than a rule.

"He looked about him wildly, as if the past were lurking here in the shadows of his house, just out of reach of his hand."
YOUTH & RUST VOL. 3 is a set of two zines. YOUTH is strictly band photos, and RUST is strictly a good time. If you’ve seen the previous two volumes, this one should be no surprise. The previous two volumes can be seen here, along with all the other zines we’ve put out.
Full size, 28 pages each.
Limited to 50.
$5 for the set.
EVERYTHING FALLING APART is more a book of prints than a zine. Each page is perforated, so you can tear out the photos and hang them on your wall. 20 photos total—10 band photos and 10 portraits, landscapes and whatever else—EVERYTHING FALLING APART is a sort of “best of”, from the three volumes of Youth & Rust. Each zine has the same photos, but a mixed page order, and a mix of black & white and colour pages.
Full size, full bleed, 20 pages.
Released with Permanent Sleep.
P.S. Here’s a video preview for it:

Youth & Rust Revue: ICONS OF SUMMER
Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave, Toronto Ontario)
Here’s the video for my new zine that I was, until now, keeping secret.
Each page of the zine is perforated near the spine, so you can tear out and display the prints however you like. Each zine has a mixed page order, and is roughly half black & white, half colour-but each zine has all the same pictures in it. In the end, this is more of a book of prints than a zine.
The first place to get this zine is at YOUTH & RUST REVUE: ICONS OF SUMMER at Oz Studios. The show is running October 1-5, but there’ll be a sweet party (maybe karaoke?) on the 4th.
Spread the word!
I’m excited to announced that I’ll be doing a show at Oz Studios October 1-5. The closing party will be on the 4, and there’ll be some sort of something happening you won’t want to miss. Come get weird.
I’ll post more about this later but this show will be the first place to get Youth & Rust 3 and a new zine Everything Falling Apart.
Spread the word!
