Maximum Rocknroll #344 • Jan 2012

It’s the beginning of the end! January 2012 is here and thus we present you a new issue of Maximum Rocknroll, number #344 to be precise! This month we have Austin, TX’s furious garage punk brutes the OBN IIIs, San Francisco’s hardcored-by-death savants the NEO CONS, we have Brazilian brutality courtesy of SOCIAL CHAOS, some Midwestern crust from WARTORN, some D-beat destruktion from Boston’s BLOODKROW BUTCHER, Australian noize mutators, the attractively named VAGINORS, the legendary WRETCHED, architects of Italian hardcore! Plus we got street punk from SLICK 46 and the TOUGHSKINS who interview each other, a report on the UK’s Means to an End fest, as well as the final SHITTY LIMITS show, and part one of a two-part tour diary from the Bay Area’s ZERO PROGRESS. On the print front we’ve got an interview with No Gods No Mattresses zine and a talk with the awe inspiring Alice Bag about her new book Violence Girl! All this madness plus the most extensive review section in punk rock print and all of those columnists you love to hate!

Go to our BACK ISSUES page to order this issue.

Who does the artwork with the picture of the two girls and the dead bird? I recognize the style but can’t remember the artist’s name, and it’s only signed KS. Keep up the good work!

DIATRIBE would like to thank the entire MRR crew for the great job they have done covering the worldwide DIY punk scene over the years and all the help and support they have given us.

The artist is Karissa Sakumoto! Her work is INSANE and rad… check out her tumblr

She has comics available here I think:

I would like to see the rear cover of this issue as I’m apparently on the back and I’m too poor to buy it right now…..Shame.

Thanks for the corgasm review in maximum rock’n’roll #344! It is not as scathing as I would have hoped, but adequate… Over the past 15 years I have never read a review of a band I enjoyed which was also given a good review in MRR, (with the exception of “classic” punk acts) so I was absolutely thrilled for the “negative” review by KM.
