It's been a while. Shit, it's been 2 years. Almost 2 years exactly. For some reason, people have been bugging me since the day I pulled the plug on Hangnail Industries to do another zine. There was the Punk Rock Retard thing, I was hyped about it at the time, and well, it just never took off. For a while now, I've been thinkin bout gettin back in the water, and now, it's finally time. So first things first, I needed a name. I kicked around a few options, and then I went back to the well. I went to a Groovie Ghoulies show armed with cereal, and asked Kepi if he would name my new fanzine. I told him it was dedicated to drinking gambling and punk rock. He took a minute and drew me a map.
"It's about drinking, gambling and punk rock, what do these things have in common? The one thing they all have in common, is they're all... NICE VICES" --- Kepi Ghoulie

All so simple. Now it had a name, and courtesy of Kepi Ghoulie, it had it's first piece of artwork. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a fanzine to put together. I need to get back to work, if only I can remember how to. You can use the link above to get to the old H.I. archives.
