Berkeley Sucks was a zine started in 1989 in Berkeley, CA. It mainly focused on the East Bay Punk scene that revolved around the Gilman Street Project. The most active editors were Jesse Townley (also known as Jesse Luscious and formerly of Philly Zine) and Ken Wisconsin. Crude art, music reviews and commentary was what made up the content of the four issues of this zine. Jesse Luscious was also a singer with the band Blatz that also featured fellow zinester Robert Eggplant, publisher of Absolutely Zippo, on guitar, poet Anna Joy Springer, Anna Lalania, and Marshall Stax.
