Road Heart Volcano #6

e-zine Cover image for Road Heart Volcano #6

Road Heart Volcano #6 is a free 20 page e-zine of a personal nature by author, artist and Up the Witchpunx creator gg Irkalla. It is a look into gg’s internal artistic world which often is unseen in Up the Witchpunx, as well as things gg has pulled out of her archive and pieces of zines from years back.

Gg reflects on rural punk movements, rural culture, and her unorthodox childhood in the essay “Heathen Hicks, Styxx and Bricks.” She gets into one of the themes that has defined her work with zines and activism so far, the emerging connection between witchcraft and punk rock subcultures.

The zine explores collaborative art made by gg and Dylan Ce on personal mythology, rural culture, and a concept the two writer/artists developed together, the texture web or “yin:web.” The textural or yin web is an effort to reclaim a DIY, unpolished internet that serves the purposes of discovery, magick and artistic creation rather than searchability, filter bubbles and NSA spying.

Road Heart Volcano is an essential for fans of punk, witchcraft, cultural critique and any of gg’s previous work.
