Hey there Maxi Rockers! It’s getting cold here in San Francisco, Halloween wackiness is over, Punxgiving is almost upon us, and we have just finished work on another killer issue of Maximum Rocknroll! MRR #380, the January 2015 issue, includes Mallorca’s raging hardcore punks ORDEN MUNDIAL, who have an amazing new LP and will be touring the US in late December, and we’ve got London’s frantic and inspiring FRAU, Memphis’ post-punk racket makers NOTS, and New Jersey’s prolific Don Giovanni Records, with releases from bands like SCREAMING FEMALES, PRIESTS and the ERGS! Also in this issue, Cyprus’ EN PSYCHRO tell us about the island’s scene and political tension, trans-national hardcore trio the INSTIGATION share their Japanese tour (and snack) diary, and Des Devlin discusses his insightful documentary film Distorted: Reflections on Early Sydney Punk. We talk to Toby Jeg of Red Scare Industries in light of the label’s 10 year anniversary, and catch up (and travel back in time) with Poland’s TZN XENNA and Italian hardcore/crossover legends RAW POWER. You’ll also find photo spreads from the London’s Static Shock Weekend and A Varning from Montreal fest, plus book, movie, zine and demo reviews, all the columnist you love to hate (plus a couple new ones), and of course, the most extensive record reviews section in punk print. Get your copy today and support thee longest running, all-volunteer-run, not-for-profit punk zine on the planet!
