MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL
#396 (may 2016) (2016/MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL)
HARDCORE/PUNK. #396 is a special edition. We’ve got over a dozen features on zines from all over planet Earth, each of them revealing a living print culture that is truly killer, absolutely vital and undeniably punk. Emmy Ramone talks about their zines Cretins of Distortion and the Mental Whiff; Alex Ratcharge conducts an interview with NUTS! fanzine; Golnar Nikpour interviews the world’s number one fan of noisy and psychotic hardcore, Tom Mayhugh of General Speech. FLUKE fanzine celebrates its 25th anniversary. From the Bay-Area we have AS YOU WERE, a comic zine anthology based out of San Francisco; NOT SHIT, a skate fanzine dedicated to the punk/d.i.y. approach, and the Enthusiast, a brilliant and ASCII art-laden email newsletter. The folks behind NO SHAME, a distro that highlights work by people of color, write about 8 of their favorite zines. Across the water there’s ANOTHER SUBCULTURE, an annual audio mag released on tape in the UK. Down in Barcelona, MIERDA editor Dani Frutos goes head to head with interviewer Paco Mus on everything from Barcelona punk’s tenuous relationship with Europe and the world to anarchism and Catalonian independence. There’s also an interview highlighting the Finnish Fanzine Archive, a project digitizing over 300 Finnish fanzines dating from 1977 to 1982. Rounding it out is a feature collecting almost half a dozen current video zines, your favorite columnists, all the reviews you can possibly bear to read. Don’t miss it.

#397 (june 2016) (2016/MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL)
HARDCORE/PUNK. On the cover: St. Louis’s the DUMPERS. You may know them as the backing band to the slippery and enigmatic LUMPY, but here the slime-punk reputation that precedes them takes a backseat to the real story. From their primordial origins to the Dumpers Rights movement, the only place to get the straight dump is in this exclusive interview. We’ve also got an interview with Steve Drewett of the NEWTOWN NEUROTICS. Reporting from the Rust Belt, hardcore-punk warriors CONCEALED BLADE give us the lowdown on the splendid isolation of the Pittsburgh scene. Out of the Midwest, Minneapolis’s KITTEN FOREVER dish on their new record of drum and bass anchored punk. There’s more: UROCHROMES, 2016’s hottest item out of New England, offer a peek into their maniac vision of US hardcore; Vienna’s calamitous post-punk group LIME CRUSH dish on their formation and their future. Reaching into the past, the VISITORS talk about the early post-punk scene in Edinburgh and beyond starting in the late ’70s; FRENOPATICSS discuss the recent reissue of their demo recordings, a small masterpiece of furtive hardcore wailing from teenage punks in early ’80s Barcelona. Plus: TINY KNIVES on their new record and carving their own space between punk, hardcore and metal in Portland. And straight out of Porto, Portugal come DOKUGA, hardcore from the oft-overlooked end of the Iberian peninsula. Topping it off is a scene report from Hattiesburg, MS, a town of less than 50000 that’s quickly becoming one of the most exciting hot-spots of punk in the US. This issue also includes photo spreads from Sin Orden’s last show and Damaged City fest in Washington, DC. Of course we also got all your favorite columnists and hundreds of reviews of the latest records, tapes, books, and films to hit the streets.

a selected visual history of american hc music (2008/MTV)
HARDCORE-PUNK. RADIO SILENCE documents the ignored space between the RAMONES and NIRVANA through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where this community built on do-it-yourself ethics thrived. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo have cataloged private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993. Unseen photos lay next to hand-made t-shirts and original artwork brought to life by the words of their creators and fans. RADIO SILENCE includes over 500 images of unseen photographs, illustrations, rare records, t-shirts, and fanzines presented in a manner that abandons the aesthetic cliches normally employed to depict the genre and lets the subject matter speak for itself. Contributions by Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Pena, Rusty Moore and Gavin Ogelsby with an essay by Mark Owens.
