Zine Review: Strange Pulse Volume Four
Strange Pulse Volume Four: A Zine by QsySue is hot off the press and better than ever. It’s 103 pages of the quality photography and interviews that you’ve come to expect from Strange Pulse, but this issue includes a bonus DVD; “The Endless Bench”.
Volume Four is bursting with railroad culture. It has page after page of freight train monikers, train graffiti, railroading, and features interviews with artists Pars, Jaber and Texican Gothic, as well as rail workers Andrea and CD. Also in this issue are a look at ancient Anasazi rock art, and L.A. street photography by the one and only OGFatCap. Handmade and chock-full of that punk-rock, DIY ethos, Strange Pulse zine is truly the product of love and passion, and it shows.

In her first film, “The Endless Bench”, QsySue set out on the hunt for the perfect train lay-up to bench. During her epic quest, she “waded barefoot through icy streams, drove down endless dirt roads, traveled across multiple state lines, chased whole cars for miles and miles, hiked though snow and ice” in order to capture some of the best benching spots that exist anywhere. For many shots she used a drone to shoot aerial footage, providing a view of freights most of us never get to see. The film is well shot and edited, and with a running time of almost 45 minutes it’s a real bonus to this already awesome zine.
Strange Pulse Volume Four is available now at strangepulse.bigcartel.com for $10 + $2 shipping.
