Monday Photo Blog: Meredith Graves


January 9th, 2012 by

This edition of the  Monday Photo Blog comes from Meredith Graves, giving us three shots of HUNTED DOWN dressed as “straight edge pirates.” Beats The Pirates of Penzance or that Disney commercial/movie, I suppose. Check out more of Meredith’s photos here.

Maximum Rocknroll #345 • Feb 2012
The 2011 year-end top ten issue!

You’ve waited long enough — MRR #345, the February 2012 issue, is finally here! With sick cover art by Mr. Alex Ratcharge, it’s the always epic year-end top ten issue, when all your favorite MRR shitworkers, reviewers and columnists opine about 2011’s best DIY punk releases. And that’s not all. We have interviews galore, starting with the artist behind the CRASS symbol, Dave King, Swedish cult favorites TERRIBLE FEELINGS, New Jersey’s own epic BIG EYES. We’ve also got the second and final part of the tour diary of local Bay Area hardcore warriors ZERO PROGRESS — an epic in itself! It doesn’t stop there… we head up north to talk to UNRULED, legendary Canadian hardcore destruction from the early 1980s, and RAPID LOSS who are keeping the HC mutated in Canada now! All o’ that plus the usual array of columns to get enraged by, and the most extensive review section in punk rock print media!

Go to our BACK ISSUES page to order this issue.



Video of the Week: Trailer for The Outhouse The Film 1985–1997


January 3rd, 2012 by

When I was about to move to Kansas in the late ’90s everyone would ask me, “Are you moving to Lawrence? You can go to shows at the Outhouse!” Sadly, I was not moving to Lawrence, but to Wichita. And even more sadly, by the time I got there the Outhouse had closed down… I heard mixed reviews on whether or not I had missed much. Some said the venue had declined a lot in its final years, and some said I had missed the greatest place to ever see a punk show. Now, finally, I — and the world — will get a chance to see what the Outhouse was really like in the upcoming documentary The Outhouse The Film 1985–1997. The trailer is self explanatory so go ahead and click “play” already…

This film is a work in progress, and if you want to see this project come to fruition there are a few things you can do to help. Donate money at their Kickstarter page and get some killer swag. If you happen to live in California and have your own Outhouse stories and experiences to share, filmmaker Brad Norman will be conducting interviews in L.A. Jan. 17th-21st and in S.F./Oakland Jan. 22nd-25th. You can contact him through the Outhouse The Film website. (The website itself is worthy of being our Website of the Week with its amazing — and growing — flyer and photo collection from throughout the Outhouse’s lifespan.) And of course, like anyone with their shit together these days they’ve got a Facebook page and a YouTube channel… We can’t wait to see the finished product!
