Yeah, yeah, spring is here. “Brush your teeth and break some bones.” Things are most definitely sprung here at the MRR compound, with new projects set in motion, a thirst for summer, and a new, slick looking issue for all you punkers!
In the May issue of Maximum Rocknroll — MRR #360 — we proudly present: a trip back in time with Greek punk mutineers STRESS (see video below!); Bordeaux post-punk outfit KALTE LUST and the importance of expression; AUTONOMY from Carbondale, IL, and the power and uses of aesthetics in anarcho-punk music; and a look into the mind of our cover artist, Alex Heir of Death Traitors. We also get a tour of the creative DIY space Blood Orange Infoshop in Riverside, CA, we discuss punk and politics in São Paulo with D-beat crusties NUCLËAR FRÖST, we get the latest on Montreal hardcore ragers PROXY, and chat with “looks like hell, sounds like shit, queer as fuck” powerviolence collective +HIRS+ from West Philadelphia. Wait, there’s more! Inside you’ll also find interviews with punk rock veterans THE KIDS from Belgium, and Will Killingsworth of Dead Air Studios, an idyllically situated recording studio in Western Massachusetts. There’s a special feature on the Elks Lodge Massacre, in a retelling of that chilling St. Patrick’s Day in L.A. in 1979, our new band feature “New Blood”, Shitworker of the Month: Matt Badenhop, all the columnists you love to read on the shitter and, of course, the most extensive reviews in punk print! Grab your copy it put that shit up on your wall!
