Maximum Rocknroll #392 • Jan 2016

mrr_392_cvr

Get ready for Maximum Rocknroll #392! It’s the January 2016 issue, and we’re starting off the new year with style: Philadelphia’s BLANK SPELL riff on their irreplicable and twisted brand of hardcore and contemplate punk worldwide, and Mitch Cardwell lands an interview with ANDY HUMAN, who dishes on survival skills in the Bay Area reptoid reality. On top of that, Julaya from G.L.O.S.S. wrote an epic of a tour diary spanning the Olympia hardcore band’s six week cross-continental voyage this Fall. We also got an interview with Detroit label Salinas Records on their relationship with the city and punk integrity; a complete history of Toronto’s short-lived yet impactful DIY venue S.H.I.B.G.B.’s; East Anglian hardcore totems VOLUNTEERS; TEX FOX, a hardcore punk provocateur out of Beirut, Lebanon; and a profile of ROOM 101, New Orleans’ busiest one-man band. Oh, let’s not forget: an announcement of our Still Not Quiet on the Western Front fest (February 11-14, save the date!), photo spreads from London’s Static Shock Weekend and the Collective Delusion/Mass Hysteria exhibition in Austin, another round of contributions from your favorite and most hated columnists alike, and an exceptionally loaded reviews section (in which many of this year’s best records are covered). Pick this one up, it’s a must read.

Maximum Rocknroll #391 • Dec 2015

Maximum Rocknroll #391 December 2015

It’s time for Maximum Rocknroll #391, the December 2015 issue of punk’s longest continuously running fanzine! This one is loaded. In these pages you will find what may be the most in-depth correspondence with the MINNEAPOLIS URANIUM CLUB BAND you’ll find anywhere—their parent company and attorneys are notoriously cagey, so read here for more on this Midwestern rock group, their origins, and their sponsors. We’ve also got interviews with Finnish hardcore lifers SA-INT, Alabama antagonist GARY WRONG, the minds behind the radical and labyrinthine Texas hardcore of SIN MOTIVO, the jagged noiseniks of Oakland’s MANSION, and outsider San Francisco hardcore punks TSA. There’s even more! For our first ever interview with any Cuban band in these pages we sat down with ADICTOX and ARRABIO during their Canadian tour, and capping it all off is an incredible interview with Zoë Dodd, Toronto harm reduction worker, activist, and punk. Also included: a scene report from Andalusia as well as photo spreads from Not Dead Yet 2015 and All Punks Go For It, a raw punk rager in the heart of California’s Central Valley. All your favorite columnists are here too, along with punk’s most comprehensive and unsparing reviews section.

Maximum Rocknroll #389 • Oct 2015

mrr_389_cvr

Incoming: Maximum Rocknroll #389, the October 2015 issue! On the cover we’ve got SICK THOUGHTS, teen punk and the man behind the most prolific one-man-band du jour. Robert Collins of CONQUEST FOR DEATH takes us on the band’s recent tour of Mongolia, South Korea, China, and Japan (lots of his patented fukks included!) and we’ve got a double dose of Portland, Oregon, with interviews with the STOPS and VIVID SEKT. We go deep and dark into the damaged minds of San Francisco’s SWIFTUMZ, find out about Detroit stalwarts TYVEK, get clued into a bit of the Irish hardcore scene with RATS BLOOD, and speak with Danish dark punks MOTH and Croatian synth punks MODERN DELUSION, plus a conversation with Oakland-based feminist, anarchist, badass-ist duo RAGANA. And, as always, your essential guide to new punk records, demos, books, and zines, and all of your favorite columnists.

Maximum Rocknroll #387 • Aug 2015

mrr_387_cvr

It’s time for Maximum Rocknroll #387, the August 2015 issue! Philadelphia’s SHEER MAG discuss livin’ in the city and their new record, CADAVER EM TRANSE (featuring a member of RAKTA) talk about life in the concrete jungle of São Paolo, and JUANITA Y LOS FEOS give us a taste of life in Madrid. The mind behind BUCK BILOXI AND THE FUCKS and GIORGIO MURDERER provides a window into his madness through a two-part interview with Eric Oblivian and Layla Gibbon. The NO-TALENTS prepare for their upcoming reunion tour, Stockholm’s DATA CONTROL still love HÜSKER DÜ, and Bob Suren and the VICTIM PARTY reflect on growing older in punk. And Aklasan Records talks Filipino hardcore distribution and promotion in the United States! Plus, a photo spread from Boston’s Smash It Dead fest by Angela Owens and a cover by Cretins of Distortion creator and MRR columnist Emmy Ramone. And, as always, all the columnists you love to hate and the most extensive record, book, zine, demo and film review sections in punk print!

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.
