XIPHOID PROCESS LIVES!
What’s Xiphoid Process? Well, it’s a bone at the base of the sternum. It starts out as cartilage but turns to bone as the body ages. But Xiphoid Process is also the name of an Austin punk rock fanzine I published between 1979 and 1986, starting when I was in high school and ending publication while I was in college at the University of Texas at Austin. More about the fanzine Xiphoid Process later. Today, XP is revived from the dead to serve as a publication space for articles on all sorts of punk and new wave subjects, but largely grounded in the pre-history, history, and legacy of Raul’s Club. Like the articles and reprints? Let us know. Want to tell your story or have an idea for one? Please send me a message and let’s get your story out there. I’m happy to help edit and work on grammar and spelling – though that wouldn’t be very punk. Xiphoid Process was my ticket to freedom as a teen punk. Let it be your ticket too.
