Hiiii I'm Ricky...I needed a project to keep me focused and sane through the winter. "Drag Me Home" is the result.
The zine gets its name from a Replacements song that doesn't exist. "Drag" is also an excellent verb. "Home" can mean so many things to so many people...especially for most friends of mine who dwell in Pittsburgh. If I lived in a happily-ever-after-fairy-tale world, the title would be, "Drag Me Home To You" but that doesn't seem to be the case.
So yeah. Hard copies of the zine + compilation will be released Friday June 27th. Honestly I was amazed at every song that was sent to me for this...goes the same for the artwork. This city's talented, man.
Don't live in Pittsburgh and can't make it to a record/book store in the area? You'll be able to order a copy very soon from My Idea of Fun! Everything will eventually be available digitally too!
