United Front Issue Two (August 1988)

Here we have a true piece of Florida core history. United Front Issue Two is a slice of the scene going on in South Florida in the summer of '88, a time pivotal to all of the U.S. for hardcore music. Author "Dan" hand-writes most of this fanzine - not sure who Dan is but if anyone does know, hit me up as I would love to check out any other issues.

Reading this really put me in the shoes of what it might have been like being involved in the young Miami scene, going to house shows and obsessing over any New York hardcore one could get their hands on. Readers please keep in mind this was written at a time where being a punk often meant being shocking or offensive for the sake of turning heads, so there are some words and images you probably would not see in a similar fanzine today. Thanks to lifer Dennis Williams for hooking me up with this! Enjoy; preview images and download below.

Winter 2018 News

Exact Change Records 7, T.N.T.'s "World Domination", is now available at Steelworker Records and on our online store. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can listen to the release in full on YouTube here. In case you were not yet aware, T.N.T. is an explosive force from Atlanta's underbelly. While you can get an idea of what to expect considering their live covers of I Hate You and Left For Dead, T.N.T. at their core is something else entirely. Wise up or be dominated!

In other news, Exact Change Fanzine 1 and the Final Say Demo are all sold out. Curbed and T.N.T. tapes are all that are in stock, and label tees have gone on sale if you want to grab one. That being said, there are a handful of each release from Exact Change Records 3 all the way to 7 laying around at Steelworker Records in Tampa.

Upcoming, we have the Search For Purpose LP to be released this summer as a joined effort between Exact Change Records and Plead Your Case Records. Two Search For Purpose tracks off of the record, Eternal Emotion and Journey, were posted by Search For Purpose here on their bandcamp. Above is the artwork for that promotional material, and below is a video of their most recent show.

Thanks for reading! Exact Change Fanzine 2 out soon.
