via punks is hippies - the blog! by 7inchcrust on 3/15/08
A text taken from their webpage:
"Immigrant zine is an independent non-profitable music fanzine outta planet earth.We released a experimental issue (issue #0) in December 2003. Since then,we have released 2 more (official) issues, one in September 2004 (issue #1) .and the other one in April 2005 (issue #2)".
#1 has interview w Kanal Attack community,Plague of Happiness (Ska punk from Malaysia!), Deal's Gone Bad (ska),The Now Denial and Kykneio Asma(Swan Song). There are may gig and record reviews
#2 has 64 pages,interviews w No Hope for the Kids,Burial, P.O Box and Spacement Records, many gig reviews and tons of record reviews
Most articles are in english and thats a plus to all you out there who don't understand not a single word in greek language, there is an excellent article about the canceling of Vandals show in Athens right after their return from Iraq in winter of 2004 (unfortunately this is in Greek..)
as conclusion:great work by some people ideals with attitude.

there is a last issue, #3 (December 2005) and hopefully i will scan it one of these days..
