Hand assembled at TMR and limited edition, Life is a Rip Of: Part One is a zine of record reviews by the one, the only, thee John “Inzane" Olson aka Inzane Johnny aka American Tapes aka 1/3 of the band Wolf Eyes . It is the first three month installment of Life is a Rip Off: The Complete Book in Olson's inimitable slash 'n' dash slanguage: anecdotal, immediate, reasonable and totally baller. How does the disturbing-on-many-levels movie Human Centipede compare to the broken blues of Big Bill Broonzy? Or why (or why not) should the demo tape from SMOKE COKE, "the mysterious Illinois underground troupe with some seriously illogical basement moves," be in your collection, too? Or, dammit, why do we all love music!! Check out LRIP1 to re-discover your love for an old favorite, or maybe to discover a new group that could earn the right to become a new old favorite.
