Maximum Rocknroll #382 • March 2015

mrr_382_cvr

Maximum Rocknroll #382, the March 2015 issue, features our annual Year-End Top Tens! MRR reviewers, columnists, and coordinators get to have their say about their favorite records, tapes, and zines of 2014. As always, we asked some of our friends to contribute lists too—see what Ralph from Not Normal Records and Tapes, Paco from La Vida Es Un Mus, Laura from RAKTA, Ben from Nuts!, and many more have to say about the records they consumed and were consumed by last year. Martin Sorrondeguy sat down with legendary SST producer Spot to talk about his recent photo book, new MRR Coordinator Grace interviewed NYHC rippers IN SCHOOL, and former MRR Coordinator Golnar Nikpour had a conversation with Leatherfist, Shit Zoo, Tilted HC, and Chelsea of PIG DNA. The little piggies also designed our cheeky cover (how many times can you spot the word “fucker”?). Plus, we’ve got a scene report from Grenoble, France: punk mecca tucked into the Alps! We have all the columnists you love to hate, including a new monthly column from Colin Atrophy of Slice Harvester zine and a contribution from hacker/whistleblower Jeremy Hammond writing from federal prison; and as always the most extensive punk record review section in print.

Maximum Rocknroll #379, the December 2014 issue, features an interview with Brazil’s powerful RAKTA, who just took North America by storm and are about to embark on a full European tour; and a conversation with Craig, bassist of Philly’s unsung ’80s hardcore legends AUTISTIC BEHAVIOR, whose long-lost LP Shattered Cattle was recently released by SRA Records. World-renowned pastry chef Brooks Headley — drummer of BORN AGAINST, (YOUNG) PIONEERS, WRANGLER BRUTES, C.R.A.S.H., UNIVERSAL ORDER OF ARMAGEDDON and more — talks about his new cookbook and cooking on the road in the ’90s. Newcomers PROTESTER and MISLED YOUTH take a break from their summer tour to visit the MRR compound, listen to SSD records, and reflect on the value of all-ages shows. Israel’s MARMARA STREISAND talk politics and punk; anarcho-punk legends POISON GIRLS discuss the recent reissues of their classic LPs, and the Bay Area’s DICK & JANE talk about their decades-long partnership. Rhode Island’s Mothers News waxes on the esoteric and exoteric in print media, long-running Brooklyn DIY space Death By Audio gives a swan-song interview before closing later this month, Bay Area by way of Eastern Europe crust label Doomed To Extinction clue us in on their recent releases, and powerviolence grinders NUNHEX offer a peek at life as a punk in Miami, Florida. All of this, plus cover art by Cassidy McGinley, a pullout photo spread from Mateus Mondini, and as always, columns, zine, book and demo reviews, and the most extensive punk record review section in print!
