Yes! A new issue of my favourite Melbourne music zine! Good Mail Day indeed.

In this issue [dedicated to Matt's grandfather, Robert Hirt, "GO BOMBERS"]: in Matt's editorial he gives us some info on his hometwon of Dingley, which made the news recently when its Maccas burned down; in this instalment of 'Notes of a Teenage Gluesniffer' Matt tells us about his family holidays, and one in particular to Queensland ["Dreamworld was the dreams of someone who clearly doesn/t know me. A dreamworld and no record shop. Whoever designed that park failed."]; interviews with Bernie Carr, Liam Matthews [The Old Bar]; Belle Phoenix; and Powerline Sneakers; and a terrific review of Radio Birdman documentary Descent Into the Maelstrom. Contender for Funniest/Saddest piece in this issue is Matt's report/review - 'Pubs I've Been To So You Don/t Ave To Go' - of Melbourne's Waltzing Matilda Hotel ["This is not a pub bistro with pokies. It's a pokies place with a pub and food."].
