How’s it going, Maxi Rockers? We just got another killer edition of MRR hot off the presses! In Maximum Rocknroll #376, the September 2014 issue, we have an extensive talk with punkettes the DISHRAGS, one of the first all-lady punk bands, who started out in Canada in 1977; we spend some time superbly wasted with Chicago’s favorite punk ragers GAS RAG, and we talk to Toronto’s hardcore menaces and mobilizers S.H.I.T.. We also have a long talk with Jon and Jensen of Iron Lung Records, talk abyss punk and goth inspiration with Philly’s FAR-OUT FANGTOOTH, and Madrid’s EXTINCIÓN DE LOS INSECTOS debate experimentation and creativity within the DIY setting, while director Vladimir Kozlov tells us about his upcoming documentary on ’80s Siberian punk, Traces in the Snow. Last but not least, after a great split EP and before their upcoming tour in the US, we get a split interview with Finnish dark synthy post-punks KUUDES SILMÄ and MAAILMANLOPPU; a chat with Paul Birnbaum of SEPTIC DEATH, and a scene report from Patras, Greece! All this, plus “New Blood,” Shitworker of the Month, a photo spread, book, demo, zine and movie reviews, all the columns you love to hate, and let’s not forget the most extensive review section in punk print!

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!
