Video of the Week: Pusher


September 7th, 2010 by

This video from Kuala Lumpur’s PUSHER comes to us via the Malaysian collective Knot Records, which seems to have its heart in the right place. They give this description of the video:

“Radio On Fire!” is essentially about the fall of the corporate music industry which not only exploits the listeners but also destroys the creative freedom for people to create music. Basically ‘Radio’ here is an analogy referred to all these major labels that are threatened by the emerged of lots of D.I.Y labels today, simply proves that anybody could appreciate and enjoy music without conforming to their ways. The revolution of ‘punk rock’ itself since the 70’s, in a way is the main factor that drove almost everybody to be self-empowered enough and go against the corporate game. This is a track from Pusher’s “Our Beloved City Of The Dead” CD released in 2010.

They also had this other video posted, which we liked a lot. Terima kasih!

Help save the Lost Cross House!


September 5th, 2010 by

Carbondale, IL‘s legendary punk house, the Lost Cross needs your help! It seems one of the tenants abruptly moved out, owing back rent, bills, etc. The sole tenant left at the house cannot afford to live there on his own, so the Carbondale punk scene (and those of us who have moved on from there as well) are trying to help raise money to pay for half the rent while Lost Cross looks for a new roommate. After 24 years of having punk shows, parties, practices, etc. no one wants to see the Lost Cross go away so easily. Understandably, the landlord wants to rent his property and if money can’t be raised he might be forced to rent to someone who might not want to keep up the tradition of Lost Cross. They are taking donations via PayPal at

Maximum Rocknroll #329 • Oct./Fall 2010

This month’s cover feature is an interview with COCK SPARRER — their first for Maximum Rocknroll in ten years. It was supposed to be conducted by Mr. Bruce Roehrs, in London, but fate got in the way… We also have interviews with French eye-pokin’ garage punkers, the IRRITONES, featuring former members of LES HATEPINKS; Australia’s own mutated DIY destruktion, UV RACE, currently on tour in the USA and featuring MRR’s own All Foreign Junker, D X! Then we got multi-countried, feral hardcore from VEINS, who feature former members of DAS OATH and CHARLES BRONSON amongst others; some Finnish bullet-belted HC courtesy of KAKKA-HÄTÄ 77; and Italian masters of the raw crust attack, KONTATTO. We talk to the MOONHEARTS, who truly represent their California backgrounds with a dirty garage atack that is as evocative as a Malibu sunset, or the riptides at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach; then from Sweden we’ve got BEYOND PINK, who plays positive yet raging hardcore. We also have a scene report from France, courtesy of Dr. Alex Ratcharge, and a reflection on the mid-‘80s hardcore scene from heshers SAINT VITUS. You know we have the most extensive punk rock review section in newsprint, and the most obnoxious, thoughtful and ridiculous columnists, so what are ya waiting for?

SORRY, THIS ISSUE OF MRR IS SOLD OUT.
