Disposable Underground started as a print ‘zine in 1991 by Richard Johnson. It covered the general music genres of rock, metal, punk, hardcore, grindcore, noise, and industrial, with some politics thrown in here and there. The ‘zine featured music reviews, interviews with bands, and columns, and continued in print form through 35 issues until 2006 when it went online, still as individual issues posted as PDFs. The ‘zine transformed into the blog in 2012.

D.U.‘s slogan is “championing the musically jaded.”

While Richard was publishing the ‘zine, he also had writing stints at CLRVYNT.com, the magazines Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance, and Resound, and the Loudoun Times-Mirror newspaper.

All of the back issues of the ‘zine are searchable at our archive site.

All of the blog’s photos and text is by Richard Johnson unless otherwise noted. Enjoy!
