"Money may come back, time don't" states the introduction of the issue. After a first number of merely 16 pages at the end of 2017, two new issues come together in a single one. Taking the same political impetus and cultural radicalism the following chapter delivers in depth contents, questions and thoughtful ideas. Escaping from the norm and avoiding hateful things such as "do you like pineaple in the pizza?", stuff that nobody would like to find when paying and waiting for a zine to arrive home.
Done between late 2018 and 2019 the ideas and elements exposed were already thought since the 1st issue was published. As always, there are interesting things on the way and very enriching stuff to dig into, like can be seen in the article "The Day I Broke my Hymen Again" to put an example. A long process since the first scratches, the discards, the struggle until everything is ready to be printed.
As for the contents, everything has been done by IDGF except the Wormrot review or the Ruido de Rabia interview, already published in Agente Provocador, but translated to English in its entirety. The same happened with Martin Sorrondeguy one previously posted in "Latin Bliss" zine but only available in Spanish. If someone has already done it, and probably better and different than what you are probably going to do it... Why not to share efforts and work together? It's useless to ask the same questions and ideas to people again and again.
It's been an interesting yet stressful - why are we going to lie? - journey. But why about two issues in one? IDGF originally started as a newsletter and had in mind to just include two or three interviews, an article, a few reviews and that's it. Seems that the poisonous sting of self-commitment caught us and felt that it wasn't enough for this assault. We tried to took care as well of its atmosphere, like if it was a good album. But it's not something to be judged by ourselves.
Regarding the future, there are already some ideas and possible paths to be taken. However, it's better to let the contents mature in a cellar than just making things as a kind of nonsense. It may take us a year or two, idk. It's not time to put deadlines. Quality over quantity, death to quick consumerism culture.
