- 3 €
The May issue of Maximumrocknroll is filled with tons of exciting punk projects, new and old. Our cover feature is a long-overdue interview with Portland's Criminal Damage. We talk to Stef Petticoat of the legendary late 1970s/early 1980s one-woman German punk band, the Petticoats, as well as current New Jersey wailers, Screaming Females and Bay Area veterans, Never Healed. We've also got interviews with Minneapolis art-drenched hardcore, Condominium, Pioggia Nera from Italy, Ottawa's Germ Attak, and a history lesson with the 1977 UK punk band, The Passion Killers, and musings by long-time British garage rockers, The Masonics. All that plus scene reports from Belgrade and Illinois, new columnists, and tons of record, zine, book and demo reviews from around the world! If that weren't enough, MRR #312 also includes the exciting second part of our Punk Health Issue (see MRR #310), featuring pieces about epilepsy, dope, and the toxic ground beneath San Francisco's Hunter's Point.
