Issue 5

Guest editor Vile Cummings takes the title literally in this bumper issue. The result: grubby Oats cartoons, true stories of blind-date frotting, Steve Dean's celebrity STD's, regurgitated Stranglers' lyrics and more. June 2002.

Issue 4

Issue 4 (2002) looks at the (then) emerging Wellington stencil graffiti phenomenon with three covert interviews: (Groups) The Now Romantics, 44 Red Door, and (individual) K. None of these people known to me at time of seeking them out through the undergrounds of artistic vandalism. Hey, I've been friends with The Doll (not her real name) ever since. May 2002.

Issue 3

To secure a probationary position as an Art & Design Studies Lecturer I enrolled in a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) degree at the same institution. This issue was my first attempt to have my cake and eat it to. My first attempt at a zine with its own discrete pop concept as opposed to being an informational experience. Drummers - are they oversexed and stupid? interviews six local drummers about their libedos and reading habits. April 2002.

Issue 2

Issue 2 is comprised of three articles about local short film-makers: Mike Heynes, Campbell Walker (by Steve & Uther Dean), and Michael Brown. March 2002.

Issue 1

The inaugural issue of Incredibly Hot Sex with Hideous People was catalysed by a lack of coverage from the media for a CD I'd released. The album was called Instant Pudding by Mr Pudding (one of my performance pseudonyms). I shamelessly asked a fan/ex music journo to write a vanity piece about my music. This was accompanied with articles on a couple of favourite local bands: The Timeless Sounds, and Marineville (by Steve Dean). Feb 2002.
