We discuss squats and apathy with Norwegian HC punks KNUSTE RUTER, and dis Christianity with Canadian melodic punkers CRUSADES; the LOWEST from Poland discuss unity and politics in their local scene, and we learn about Spanish-singin’ Finnish rock ’n’ rollers LOS CULITOS. We also talk with Sacramento punk-rockers RAT DAMAGE, San Bernardino d-beat ponx PESADILLA DISTOPIKA, Connecticut’s badass punk ladies DAMN BROADS, Providence-based angular-punk outfit COTTAGING, and Urbana-Champaign mathy-rockers HANK..
