Leatherface: Interview by Todd Taylor and Megan Pants. Tobe Hooper fans, rejoice! The U.K.’s arguably best intricate punk band returns to talk about their fancy gear and beat the shit out of everyone they can!

Election 2008:
by Chris Pepus. We at Razorcake would like to encourage our readers to get active and educate themselves politically, instead of just getting drunk and watching Alice reruns all the time.

Let’s Wreck the Party: Rethinking Political Affiliation: by Jeff Fox. Seriously, we at Razorcake would like to encourage our readers to get active and educate themselves politically, instead of just getting drunk and watching Alice reruns all the time.

Bad Reaction:
Interview by Joe Dana. Old style hardcore in the vein of Black Flag, Bad Brains, and Minor Threat. You should probably see ‘em and buy all their stuff, so they can keep their old hardcore reunion shows/Gatorade addictions going. (http://www.myspace.com/badreaction)

Infoshop? Infoshop!: Article by Lauren Trout. If you’ve ever wondered about infoshops, here’s – uh, info! (Info bit one: Infoshop just isn’t as much fun to say as “Bike shoppe.” But to be fair, they usually have a lot more to read.)

RKL: Retrospective by Jan Rohlk. A thorough look back on the drunken stepfathers of Nardcore, not to mention influence on countless others. Proof that you can still be totally punk, and still play your instruments while under the influence.
