HARDCORE/PUNK. Features an interview with the organizer of the Bay Area’s Evaluate What You Tolerate compilation and zine with Cat Brooks, co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project. We also hear from Portland, Oregon’s No! To Rape Culture collective about marginalized people collectively organizing against rape and other forms of oppression. Ex-VELVET UNDERGROUND member Willie Alexander spills all about his 50-plus-year-long “so-called career”. We also have part 2 of our lengthy article about the history of Alabama punk, covering Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, and more. Also included is an article in tribute to the radical life of Fred Smith of BEEFEATER. There is a massive feature on Sheffield, England, including a scene report, a mini-interivew with the Kids of the Lughole label, a full-length interview with COMMUNITY, and a photo spread from the Noise Annoys festival. For those hungry more more photos, there’s some fresh shots from Toronto’s Not Dead Yet fest as well. Russia’s STRESSHOLD give exclusive tidbits about touring and feminism in their home country, while Irish punks GRIT describe the politics and gentrification in Ireland. We also get updates about mental health from misanthropic Norwegian punks NEGATIV. Plus you’ll find enough columns and reviews to gossip over for the rest of the month. So what are you waiting for?
