For this month's cover feature/tongue twister we've got "Punk On Kuollut, Eläköön Hardcore" a retrospective of the birth of Finnish hardcore! Also in this issue: interviews with early '80s hardcore legends, THE FIX; Pittsburgh hardcore miscreants SLICES; the Midwestern-by-way-of-Russian PINK REASON; and Dubai's first punk band, GANDHI'S COOKBOOK. We have San Francisco sounds covered with interviews with the NODZZZ and post-punk- and C86-influenced BRILLIANT COLORS. We've also got the Messthetical SCROTUM POLES, the classic Northwestern punk sound provided by GUN OUTFIT from Olympia, and some Canadian hardcore courtesy of POSITIVE NOISE. All of this plus a Goner Fest photo spread, and of course all the usual columns, news, and more punk rock reviews than you can possibly conceive of!
