Girls Get Busy’s Zine of the Week: I Trust My Guitar #1 by Rachel Aggs
I Trust My Guitar is a music fanzine that i have just finished making. Issue One is about African music, not sure what the next issue will be about. there are lots of spelling mistakes and i had to glue two of the pages together because there was an odd number. the title is taken from a Magik Markers album that i like.
I wanted to make a zine that’s an unpretentious take on music from around the world. I love thinking and writing about music but i’ve always felt like because im not techincally ‘good’ at writing i didn’t have a voice - reading zines made me feel stupid for thinking that and seeing as music writing often seems either so caught up in whats hip or being willfully obscure and highbrow, i thought i’d carve out my own space and make my own noise. i want to write personal, goofy stuff about the music that inspires me and the people who make it and use this process to learn more about different cultures and histories ETC.
Available to read online for free here!
Rachel also plays in bands Trash Kit, Covergirl + Golden Grrrls
