What’s up Maxi Rockers?! Having fun in the sun? Well, while most of you were raging in the pit at the fests, or bombing the pool at Punk Bowling, we were hard at work on another killer issue of Maximum Rocknroll! This month, in MRR #374 — the July 2014 issue, we have interviews with Bay Area grungy punkettes the QUAALUDES and jazzy hardcore noise rockers NO BABIES, Slovenian punk savant Igor Vidmar on Ex-Yugo punk history, Australian mutant punk rockers AUSMUTEANTS, and Peru’s bellowing D-beat punks WAÑUY! Also featured in this issue, you’ll find Canadian melancholic Oi! lads BISHOPS GREEN, activist balaclava punks GULAG BEACH, Poland’s cold wavers 1984, and UK’s D-beat ragers ENDLESS GRINNING SKULLS. Also! Wales hardcore peace punks GRAND COLLAPSE, Brazil’s dark chaotic D-beat FEAR OF THE FUTURE, Seattle heavy melodic crust punks COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDDON, a beautiful Colombian scene report, two photo spreads — from DC and TX — Shitworker of the Month, book, demo and movie reviews (phew!) and of course, let’s not forget, the most extensive reviews section in punk print! Find it all in this new exciting issue of Maximum Rocknroll!
MRR is contributor-driven, which means that we rely on punks like you for content. You don’t need an invitation to be a part of what we do.
For review and radio play consideration, send two copies of vinyl or one copy of CD-only or cassette-only releases to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. Send us the final version of your record—we do not review digital releases, test presses, or promo CDs.
We will review everything that falls within our areas of coverage: independent punk, garage, and hardcore. This means no major labels or labels that are exclusively distributed by major-owned distributors. We reserve the right to reject releases on the basis of content. Music without vocals or drums will not be considered.
Every record that is reviewed is added to our archive, the largest collection of punk records in the world. Please allow two months from your mailing date before following up to ask if we’ve received your submission.
We are always looking for interview, scene report, guest column, and photo submissions. Submission does not guarantee publication. In order to improve the chances of your submission being printed, please read our FAQ.
In addition to records, we also review independently published and produced zines, books, and movies. Please send physical copies to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. If you have a streaming link to your film, or if it is playing in the San Francisco Bay Area, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
