HARDCORE/PUNK. April 2018 issue, brings you old-school style with an all cut ‘n’ paste layout. Spain’s RATA NEGRA refuse to just go for the easy joke, while Florida’s PROTOCOL insist you can’t be serious all the time. We teach you some history lessons with a rundown of rare Finnish KBD punk and an interview with Wyoming’s COWS. That includes rural Italy, where DOTS are getting people dancing to their funky punk as we speak, and Sweden, where KATASTROF do their part to keep the Uppsala scene strong. Punk can last, too: just ask Portland’s WOOLEN MEN, who discuss wanting to make a record that stands the test of time. Or Michigan’s CLOUD RAT, who analyze how their genre-overlapping sound has changed over the years. Or Japan’s ILLYA, who have lasted 11 years in spite of never getting to go on long tours. Or LEMURIA, who might live all over the US now, but are still going strong after 14 years. Hell, the FORCED ORDER guys have been playing together since high school, and now they’re pushing 30! SCORE‘s members have persevered through chronic illness and immigration difficulties to keep playing, but if life gets in the way, you can always come back to punk later, like the mysterious man behind Neck Chop Records did. And if that’s not enough for you, we’ve got all the reviews and columns you crave, plus more.
