Louis Overstreet. -- Psychedelic painter Fred Tomaselli talks in-depth about his art and his punk/ fanzine beginnings. -- Meredith Brosnan goes off about the ABC No Rio open mic scene in NYC in the mid-'80s. -- Interviews with Sam Lipsyte, Todd Barry, Souled American, Peter Lamborn Wilson, and The Blow."
