Some People Are Jerks

Some People Are Jerks is a zine from Austin, Texas, U.S.A., published in the 1990's.

The editors for this publication are Waverly, Zana, Sausylito and Lula. The zine covers the independent music scene of the mid 1990's, focussing on bands with women members, and includes interviews with Combustible Edison, Delta 72, Emily's Sassy Lime, Fifth Column, Helium, Jessamine, Lungleg, The Smears, and Tsunami.

There are also articles such as "Don't Look At me Sideways-Don't Even Look Me Straight On!!!", about the stupid, rude, personal questions middle class white people ask waiters and waitresses, such as "Why is your hair that color?", "Uppity Women Unite", about seeing the spoken word performances of Lydia Lunch and Exene Cervenka, "How to make a difference, dammit!!", about the actions you can take to change things in society, "Freak Magnet", about encounters with strange people, "Satan Shit", about researching books that have 'Satan' in the title, which the writer didn't have time to read, so instead, made up a story, "A Lesson in Methods of Birth Control", bad cops, plus letters from readers.
