Tight Pants was published by Madeleine (AKA Maddy) first from Amherst, MA, then Brooklyn, NY.
It was a perzine about rock'n'roll, punk rock, stories and tight pants. Issues consisted mainly of Maddy's stories, interspersed with humorous bits, comics, reviews, and lots of photos of tight pants. It was a fresh take on feminism laced heavily with humor, music and fashion. A split issue appeared with Snakepit zine in 2003. Tight Pants was featured in 2003's Zine Yearbook. The last known issue was #10, published in 2003.
