Maximum Rocknroll #410, the July 2017 issue, has arrived!
We hang out with Mexico City’s RIÁ‘A and talk art and politics with Iceland’s hardcore punks DAUÁYFLIN and their US tourmates, Olympia’s XYLITOL. We have interviews with Berlin supergroup LIFE FUCKER, the creator of Exotic, a documentary covering sex work in Guam, and Hiro the Aggression from the legendary DISCLOSE.
Garage punkers REPTILIANS FROM ANDROMEDA tell us about the scene in Istanbul, in fair Verona we meet LOS FASTIDIOS, no wave femme-punk heroines Y PANTS reflect on the occasion of their recently reissued back catalogue, IN FLUX mix powerviolence and D-beat in Portland, and MYDOLLS are still at it playing feminist punk in Houston and recording new music nearly 40 years into their life as a band.
All of this plus photo spreads from Waynze World III in Kansas City and Olympia’s Book Your Own Fest, as well as an interview with collective members organizing Chicago’s queercore Fed Up Fest. And that’s not all — we’ve also got the biggest record, zine, demo and film review section in punk. What are you waiting for?
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.
