HARDCORE/PUNK. The best part of your year is already here: it’s our 2018 Year-End Top Ten Issue! We’ve also got Farrah Skeiky and Angela Owens giving us their top 10 photos of the year. After reading CONSTANT MONGREL‘s name so many times in our Top Ten lists, you’ll be primed and ready to read their interview in this issue! We’ve also got the scoop on Austin punks DAMAK and Canadian no wavers RUBY KARINTO, two very different sounding bands who both discuss how being first-generation immigrants affects their music. Plus you can check out what’s going on in Beo?in, Serbia, where the local political party may have shut down the underground venue, but they’ll never stop the punks.

PUNK/MELODYCORE. In 2008, NOFX starred in the TV show "backstage passport", a series that documented the insane hijinks of the band as they weaved an unsteady path through exotic locales where most sane bands fear to tread. The reality romp originally aired on Fuse and later went on to be released on DVD which served up tons of "too hot for TV" bonus footage. After the resounding success of the series, NOFX has been met with endless requests for a soundtrack including all the rare and exclusive songs (5 previously unreleased) from the show. Packed with 15 tracks from both seasons, the "backstage passport soundtrack" is a one-stop shop for all the rare, remixed and unreleased material that fans could only previously enjoy as snippets during the show.

HARDCORE. The world of hardcore is renowned for the preservation of its own history. The history has been well-documented in records that have all been reissued, websites devoted to its preservation, an oral history that has been passed down through generations of show-goers, and now, through books that explore even the most minute and obscure details of underground hardcore culture. This book documents an incredibly important aspect of hardcore's culture that has, until now, not been documented in any print format: hardcore band t-shirts through the diligent collecting and cataloging of hardcore enthusiast Orhun Öner. The 200 pages of "life. love. shirts.: a collection of hardcore clothing" features the colorful t-shirts that were bought and sold in the sweaty clubs of the '80s and '90s, many of which are extremely rare and fetch astronomical sums on the collector's market. Many of the shirt photos are accompanied by stories from the bands, labels, and those who had a hand in the production and distribution, a glimpse of the rich tradition of hardcore band t-shirt production that continues on to this day.
