This month’s cover feature is an interview with COCK SPARRER — their first for the magazine in ten years. It was supposed to be conducted by Mr. Bruce Roehrs, in London, but fate got in the way… We also have interviews with French eye-pokin’ garage punkers, the IRRITONES, featuring former members of LES HATEPINKS; Australia’s own mutated DIY destruktion, UV RACE, currently on tour in the USA and featuring MRR’s own All Foreign Junker, D X! Then we got multi-countried, feral hardcore from VEINS, who feature former members of DAS OATH and CHARLES BRONSON amongst others; some Finnish bullet-belted HC courtesy of KAKKA-HÄTÄ 77; and Italian masters of the raw crust attack, KONTATTO. We talk to the MOONHEARTS, who truly represent their California backgrounds with a dirty garage atack that is as evocative as a Malibu sunset, or the riptides at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach; then from Sweden we’ve got BEYOND PINK, who plays positive yet raging hardcore. We also have a scene report from France, courtesy of Dr. Alex Ratcharge, and a reflection on the mid-‘80s hardcore scene from heshers SAINT VITUS. You know we have the most extensive punk rock review section in newsprint, and the most obnoxious, thoughtful and ridiculous columnists, so what are ya waiting for?
