If you want to buy some records or zines:
* Commander Keen Zine Distro *
A new Zine distro located in Munich.
* xfairplayx Mailorder *
Mostly DIY Hardcore Punk stuff for very good prices. Also a frequently updated resource for the latest concert dates and tours in Germany.
* Nova Recordings + [zine] Distro *
Not only a record label but also a distro with lots of great zines. * Passionate Resistance *
Not longer a zine distro but now transformed into a network platform.
* Pleasure Syndicate Mailorder *
hc/punk indie guitar stuff for fair prices
* X-Mist *
Another punk hardcore mailorder and also running their own label (and in the past Plot Zine). Always good for finding new interesting bands and hey, believe it or not they have more than one alibi-female (punk) artist (unlike so many other mailorders).

ONLINE FANZINES.... Most of the ones I know are kind of loveless, boring answer-question-games obviously with the main intention to get free records or even paid adds. Especially so called punk/ hardcore zines often seem to have the aim to give attention to bands that - I think - need no intention. A FANzine (or maybe just say zine because of the misleading meaning of FAN; at least not meaning a magazine) in my eyes should be made with love and passion (what must not mean reading someone´s diary) and I can find that much more in printed zines. Prove me wrong (You can find some links to zine distros above).
* Arranca!/ fels *
Arranca! ist eine Politmagazin "für eine linke Strömung", fels das Kollektiv, das (nicht nur) das Heft herausgibt. Eines der wenigen Politikhefte, was auch visuell interessant ist.

The printed zine is now called "Shit me a mountain of lies please". The website is not as interesting as the zine but you can order it here.
* Not Just Boys Fun *
You can find photos here as well as texts that have been released in Paper Zines called Rote Tränen and Not Just Boys Fun. Theres is also some other stuff like lots of quotes etc. And the name rules!
* Punk Planet *
If you want to know the content of the latest number or also the content of all old numbers you can find it here. There are also mp3s for download. I guess it´s my favourite magazine for combining music, art and politics.
* Reason To Believe *
A printed zine focussed on European diy activity including music.
* Venus Zine *
