Special import. Profane Existence was a Minneapolis-based anarcho-punk collective. Established in 1989, the collective published the Profane Existence zine as well as releasing and distributing anarcho-punk, crust, and grindcore music. Profane Existence magazine has been described as “the largest of the anarchist Punk fanzines in North America.” The magazine deals with a very broad range of topics, including veganism, animal, women’s and minority rights, anti-fascist action and the punk lifestyle. The zine was initially published in a black and white tabloid format. It switched to a magazine format with issue #23 (Autumn 1994) and ran up to issue #37 (1998). It was then reborn in the spring of 2000 as a tabloid zine again before closing down again in 2012. Making Punk A Threat Again is the slogan used since the beginning
This is issue # 37 which means its the final issue in magazine format. 80 pages written in English with bands such as Dropdead, Riot/Clone, Dir Yassin, Force Macabra, Resist And Exist, Riganstruction and all other kinds of articles that could fit the punk lifestyle. This last issue goes under the title “The battle may be over….the war has just begun”.
