Happy May Day! Spring has one foot through the door, and thank goodness for that! We’re super excited about the newest MRR, as it’s packed with punk goodness. In this month’s issue — Maximum Rocknroll #372, May 2014 — two MRR shitworkers hang out with fellow zinesters from Razorcake at the LA Zine Fest and pick their brain in the process; we catch up with Vasko of Macedonia’s melodic punk power trio XAXAXA, and Mila of Italy’s Agipunk Records interviews Udine’s D-beat legends EU’S ARSE (who’re touring the US in May!). Poland’s ALERT! ALERT! discuss contemporary Polish punk and DIY; Edmonton, Canada’s dark post-punks RHYTHM OF CRUELTY share creative insights; Ontario’s STRANGE ATTRACTOR talks drumming and being a lifer; and we get the scoop on Calgary’s psycho-punk ’n’ roll outfit PMMA, Atlanta, GA’s fuzz-drenched punks WYMYNS PRYSYN, and Oakland’s noisy pop punk guitar/drums duo STRAIGHT CRIMES. We also have an exclusive, final interview with Boston hardcore megaliths SIEGE;  REVENGE OF THE PSYCHOTRONIC MAN discusses the UK punk scene and the excellence of Alan Partridge, and we get deep and dirty in the minds of Buffalo, NY’s SPACE WOLVES. All of this, plus a Scotland scene report, a killer photo spread from Jesse Ponkamo, and the most extensive record review section in punk print!
