Maximum Rocknroll rings in the New Year with a special photo issue. Featuring contributions from over 75 photographers, issue #321 is chock-a-block with killer punk photos from around the world. It includes an Aaron Cometbus/Anna Brown interview with longtime MRR contributor Murray Bowles (If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries…). We talk with Helge Schreiber, compiler of the last MRR photo issue, Welcome to Cruise Country (1987), and we also interview 924 Gilman St.’s house photographer Larry Wolfley. Brazilian photographers and editors of Fodido E Xerocado, Mateus Mondini and Daigo Oliva go head-to-head, Karoline Collins and Chrissy Piper interview each other, and Patrick Baclet talks about publishing his photo book, Out of Vogue. Token garage punk photographers Mark “icki” Murrmann and Chris “Canderson” Anderson get grilled. This special photo issue also includes an extensive, illustrated bibliography of punk photo books. But really the focus is on the photos. Lots and lots of photos. All this plus the usual columns, news and the most extensive review section in punk. Cover shot of Spain’s INVASION by Mateus Mondini.
MRR is contributor-driven, which means that we rely on punks like you for content. You don’t need an invitation to be a part of what we do.
For review and radio play consideration, send two copies of vinyl or one copy of CD-only or cassette-only releases to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. Send us the final version of your record—we do not review digital releases, test presses, or promo CDs.
We will review everything that falls within our areas of coverage: independent punk, garage, and hardcore. This means no major labels or labels that are exclusively distributed by major-owned distributors. We reserve the right to reject releases on the basis of content. Music without vocals or drums will not be considered.
Every record that is reviewed is added to our archive, the largest collection of punk records in the world. Please allow two months from your mailing date before following up to ask if we’ve received your submission.
We are always looking for interview, scene report, guest column, and photo submissions. Submission does not guarantee publication. In order to improve the chances of your submission being printed, please read our FAQ.
In addition to records, we also review independently published and produced zines, books, and movies. Please send physical copies to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA.
