Monday Photo Blog: Ricky Adam!!!


March 29th, 2010 by

Here are two photos from Ricky Adam, a killer photographer from Northern Ireland. You might remember him from his interview in MRR #276. These two pics were part of the Maximum Photo Issue and photo show. Something different than the typical sweaty-dude moshpit type photo.

Wanna submit a photo for the MRR Photo Blog?

If you shoot shows and have photos you want to submit for the MRR Blog, send them to: Be sure to put “MRR Photo Blog” in the subject. Include your name, the band, where and when it was shot. Just send your best photos – edit tightly. Three to five photos is plenty. We will be exercising a little quality control here…not everything sent in will be posted. Please size your photos so they are 500 pixels (72 dpi) at the longest side.

There are a lot of awesome photographers out there shooting shows…and there are a lot of unseen archives of old shows. Show us what you’ve got!

We’d love to mix it up with some old photos. Dig into your archives and send some of those lost gems.



Bonus Video of the Week: Siberian Hardcore


March 27th, 2010 by

From the description on YouTube:

The almighty ORGASM OF NOSTRADAMUS from Ulan-Ude, Siberia, with their top 40 smash hit rip-snorter, “Jolly Tough Guys”! Their guitarist Abba was killed when Moscow skins gave him a bottle of battery acid and told him it was vodka. He died after a few days of excruciating agony in hospital. Some months later Ugol, their charismatic vocalist, dropped dead in a St. Petersburg record store from an overdose of alcohol and pills. I believe bass-player Zombie and co-vocals Rezan carry on the O.N. name in Ulan-Ude – “NEON”. Classic band!



Video of the Week: Neurosis at Gilman, 1988


March 24th, 2010 by

Seems like a good day to fire up the old YouTube time machine. And where in punk time do we find ourselves? Ahhh, 20+ years ago at 924 Gilman as Pain of Mind-era Neurosis grace the stage. Please take note of how tiny and young everybody is.

You can find more awesome videos like this over at http://killthatcat.com
It’s full of shredding new bands, and some jaw dropping archival shit. Check it out!
