mrr_377_cvr

In Maximum Rocknroll #377, the October 2014 issue, we have an extended interview with chaotic hardcore band FRACASO, featuring reflections on life as a punk in Venezuela and the complications of playing in a band with members spread across the globe. Mia d’Bruzzi from early Bay Area punk band FRIGHTWIG tells us about life as a feminist in a developing punk scene and the band’s current projects. Yecatl Peña (from INSERVIBLES, TERCER MUNDO, and more) drew this month’s cover and shares a long-overdue Mexico City scene report, with a rundown on all the bands, venues, festivals, and record shops you need to know about in the new wave of Chilango punk. Poland’s GOVERNMENT FLU share reflections on their US tour, while Seoul, South Korea’s MYMANMIKE look forward to their upcoming journey through North America and tell us how three dudes from three continents ended up playing in a powerviolence band together. Prolific label Mind Cure Records gives us a window into their multi-layered history as documentors of Pittsburgh punk, and we’re introduced to the synthy sounds of Greece’s ERA OF FEAR and England’s MEN OH PAUSE. Bay Area motörpunks ELEGY clue us in on their upcoming plans, HARSH WORDS reassure us that there’s more to Athens, GA than REM, and we’ve got two photo spreads featuring shots from L.A.’s Beserktown Festival and New York’s Latino Punk Fest. And, of course, we’ve got all the columnists you love to hate, plus demo, book, movie and zine reviews, and, as always, the most extensive record reviews section in punk print.
