The Potential Johns: Interview by Todd Taylor. You know these guys – they’re that Marked Men side project – that’s been around for like, a lot longer then the Marked Men. Read this up, because by our calculations this will be about one of three interviews they do in the next ten years. (www.myspace.com/potentialjohns)
Los Illegals: Interview by Jimmy Alvarado. Part two. Classic East L.A. punk rock – the exciting conclusion. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Illegals)
Bear Proof Suit: Interview by Kevin DeBroux. Cryogenically frozen in 1983, Bear Proof Suit have returned with fucked up, guitar-solo-plentiful hardcore. Wait, scratch that, turns out Milwaukee has really cold winters. (www.myspace.com/bearproofsuit)
Svartenbrandt: Interview by Arlen Jones and Daryl Gussin. Named after the Swedish bank robber, the only thing these dudes are going to steal is your time – when you listen to those fucking killer riffs. (www.myspace.com/cardiacarrest)
Statues: Interview by Dave Williams. Not quite power pop, but their own kind of office punk. Badass! Dunder Mifflin-core! Oh, not that Office. Still badass. (www.myspace.com/statues)
