Monday Photo Blog: Killer Kiwi Kore

September 20th, 2010 by

I fucking love New Zealand punk. Sure, that’s a bit of a broad generalization, but for such a small country, a lot of killer bands have come from there. Hell, if all the punk that ever came from New Zealand was the AK-79 comp, that country would still be leagues ahead of plenty of other country. It’s a bonafide killer classic. Here’s a brief taste of what’s going on down there today, care of Carlos Patino. Thanks Carlos!

If you shoot shows and have photos you want to submit for the MRR Blog, send 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!
