MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #386 - JULY 2015
It’s time for Maximum Rocknroll #386, the July 2015 issue! FLESH WORLD dish on their new record, out now on Iron Lung, and clue us into the secrets to surviving in a rapidly changing San Francisco. PISS TEST reflects on their hometown of Portland and talks some shit in advance of their upcoming West Coast tour. We’ve got two blasts from the past: Philadelphia’s YDI talk about their recently reissued records and THE WRECKS (featured on Not So Quiet on the Western Front!) give us a window into Reno’s early punk scene and the role of women within it. The producer and director of Here To Be Heard: The Story of the Slits clue us into the progress of the documentary, which was spearheaded by Ari Up just before her death. We’ve also got conversations with PDX rockers BITCH SCHOOL, Russian post-punkers SIERPIEN, Australia’s Homeless Records, and a massive London, UK scene report! Plus, a photo spread documenting many of the worldwide MRR Presents shows that happened on May 16th, 2015, new regular columns from Erika Elizabeth (of Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine and Expressway To Yr Skull radio) and Sadie Switchblade (of G.L.O.S.S. and PEEPLE WATCHIN’), and all the record, zine, book, film and demo reviews that are fit to print.
