Howdy fellow residents of punk land. It's August and that means it's time for the September issue (#304) of MaximumRocknroll to make its way into you paws. And it's a smoker! This month we've got a rad interview with artiste extraordinaire RAYMOND PETTIBON, JOHN STABB of DC hardcore flag bearers Government Issue catches us up with his past and present, and Danish punk rock 'n' rollers COLA FREAKS let it fly. Not to mention NJ pop-punkers MEASURE [SA] spill it, NYC's original Oi! masters THE PRESS, Mexican post-punkers XYX, Macedonian straightedge thrashers F.P.O., and Canadian proto-punk gods SIMPLY SAUCER also took the time to talk with us. Let's also not forget pieces on ANDY T. and KULTURKAMPF written by the late great Lance Hahn along with our usual slew of reviews, columns, letters, and a scene report from Medelín, Columbia. What are you waiting for?!?!
