Jay Hinman ( USA)

Writer, blogger, fanzine publisher, radio DJ and podcaster



With English-Chinese interpreter


A talk by “Dynamite Hemorrhage” publisher and podcaster Jay Hinman about the history of music fanzines, from the pre-punk era to the present. He'll discuss how he creates and distributes his printed underground rock music fanzine Dynamite Hemorrhage in a world in which virtually all music criticism and discussion takes place online, and traces the evolution of the fanzine from its countercultural roots to its status today as a token throwback to the analog era.


About “Dynamite Hemorrhage”

“Dynamite Hemorrhage” was originally a music-sharing Tumblr site run by Jay Hinman since 2012. It then morphed into a downloadable bi-weekly podcast, which now has more than 100 issues, and a print fanzine with its 6th issue on the way. It focuses on sub-underground and raw music from the last ten decades: punk, bent pop, crude garage, free jazz, ethnic music, experimental, folk and more.

The name “Dynamite Hemorrhage” comes from a 1979 song by American punk-era band The Flesh Eaters, and Jay did an interview with Chris D., the band’s singer and “Slash” magazine writer for the debut issue of the fanzine in 2013. Its covers an extensive range of fresh and highly-personalized contents, including band/lable interviews and book/album/live reviews. Check out some from its latest issue: a deep overview of 1990s outsider label Majora Records that released strange musical transmissions including the bulk of the Sun City Girls’ works along with many avant-folk, noise and fractured DIY albums, featuring two interviews with label founder Nick Schultz; an exclusive interview with New Zealand-based solo artist Maxine Funke who’s made some of the most transcendent, low-fidelity, super-minimal strum & voice recordings of the last decade; “Parallel Word Punk-Era 45s”, a ten-best list of punk-era 45rpm singles; “Hemorrhage in Dub” column on recent finds & reissues from the 1970s golden era of Jamaican dub…

After each issue of the print fanzine sold out, the scanned copy will be made available for free download on its website.


About Jay Hinman

Jay Hinman, the writer and publisher of Dynamite Hemorrhage, has been unceasingly active in local and national underground music circles during the past 30 years as a music writer, blogger, fanzine publisher, radio DJ and podcaster.

Way back in the 1990s, Jay Hinman has published his first fanzine “Superdope”. After its last issuein 1998, he did an online radio show called“No Count Dance Party” and wrote for the online magazine “Perfect Sound Forever”. In 2003 he began blogging with “Agony Shorthand” as one of the first music bloggers, at the same point with several other blogs, most of which were about music, including a generalist blog “Hedonist Jive”that encompasses books, film and music.

No cyber-luddite, Jay's willingly adopted new technologies to spread the gospels of everything from “panic rock” to “brutarian thud plod”. He combines a deep historical knowledge of rock 'n' roll with a discerning ear for the proto-contemporary, which delivers to an audience of steely-eared, micro-scene denizens in his action-packed, inimitable prose style.
