We ring in the new year with our third Maximum Rocknroll Queer Issue! First up is ANTI-CORPOS who talk to us about organizing Girls Rock Camp in Brazil! CLOSET BURNER demystifies being queer in the Midwest, DURES ET GAYS share wild tales of squat shows in Europe, and EJACULOID gets fresh with us. Also in this issue, GLORY HOLE shares their experience of being queer in Australia, PEEPLE WATCHIN’ talks about tour and playing Smash It Dead Fest, and Porcelain from FRUIT PUNCH sits down with us to discuss her emergence and coming out in the East Coast punk scene. Plus heaps more conversations with queer punx from SHOPPING, PRIESTS, GROKE, SCREAMING QUEENS, and STRONG BOYS, a report from London Queer Zine Fest, a bunch of guest columnists, and the largest and most extensive punk reviews section in print today!
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. If you have a streaming link to your film, or if it is playing in the San Francisco Bay Area, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
