Holy smokes, time flies when you’re having fun! Despite a rent raise and USPS wanting to dig through our holey pockets, we’ve still managed to bring you a new supreme edition of Maximum Rocknroll — MRR #375, August 2014! In this issue we talk with Iberian powerhouse UNA BÈSTIA INCONTROLABLE before destroying the US on their upcoming tour; in honor of their very exciting 20th anniversary, we get a special extended interview with Extreme Noise Records; plus an in-depth story on one of Leningrad’s punk progenitors, Andrei “Svin” Panov. In this issue we also feature HC’s newest darlings GLUE from the great country of Texas, too cool for your school Cool Death Records from Down Under give us the skinny on their new releases, and two floor-thumping air-punching stripped-down punk bands from Japan, EIEFITS and THEE MIGHTY FEVERS. Serbian rock ‘n’ rollers S.U.S. discuss breaking the norm in Serbia and bringing back the glam in punk, Barcelona’s VÈRTIGO tell us about their local scene, MISCALCULATIONS from the UK talk about their minimalist yet calculated approach to music, and a tour diary from Canada’s BORN WRONG takes us on a bender and lets us live vicariously through the band’s HC misdeeds. Plus two photo spreads, a special “New Blood” spread, your favorite columnists (plus guests!), book, zine, demo, movie and of course the most extensive record reviews section in punk rock print y’all—plus much, much more! Cover art this month by Jordan Poggerpants.
