Monday Photo Blog: Ringside with Darryl Reid

October 27th, 2014 by

I’m always stoked when Darryl Reid sends something over to the Monday Photo Blog, because it’s always primo material, as you can see below. Darryl’s not afraid to get down on the dirty floors to get the shot, such as with Born Wrong, and Hashed Out. If you can’t get enough — and who can these days? — go check his tumblr page.

Maximum Rocknroll #379 • Dec 2014


Maximum Rocknroll #379, the December 2014 issue, features an interview with Brazil’s powerful RAKTA, who just took North America by storm and are about to embark on a full European tour; and a conversation with Craig, bassist of Philly’s unsung ’80s hardcore legends AUTISTIC BEHAVIOR, whose long-lost LP Shattered Cattle was recently released by SRA Records. World-renowned pastry chef Brooks Headley — drummer of BORN AGAINST, (YOUNG) PIONEERS, WRANGLER BRUTES, C.R.A.S.H., UNIVERSAL ORDER OF ARMAGEDDON and more — talks about his new cookbook and cooking on the road in the ’90s. Newcomers PROTESTER and MISLED YOUTH take a break from their summer tour to visit the MRR compound, listen to SSD records, and reflect on the value of all-ages shows. Israel’s MARMARA STREISAND talk politics and punk; anarcho-punk legends POISON GIRLS discuss the recent reissues of their classic LPs, and the Bay Area’s DICK & JANE talk about their decades-long partnership. Rhode Island’s Mothers News waxes on the esoteric and exoteric in print media, long-running Brooklyn DIY space Death By Audio gives a swan-song interview before closing later this month, Bay Area by way of Eastern Europe crust label Doomed To Extinction clue us in on their recent releases, and powerviolence grinders NUNHEX offer a peek at life as a punk in Miami, Florida. All of this, plus cover art by Cassidy McGinley, a pullout photo spread from Mateus Mondini, and as always, columns, zine, book and demo reviews, and the most extensive punk record review section in print!
