one_punks_guide_to_the_ramones_zine_razorcake_cover

The Ramones are the last band to exist before the Ramones invented (or at least mastered and codified) punk: They are the final band of the pre-punk era, the end of the line.

Razorcake #69 from 2012, featuring Canadian Rifle, The Consumers, So Cow, John Wesley Coleman

Razorcake #69 from 2012, featuring Canadian Rifle

Canadian Rifle: Interview by Todd Taylor. Gritty Midwest punk that’s just a little off. Breaking rules and their own hands, they don’t even follow the conventions of their hometown’s pizza.

Razorcake 106

“It hit me about a year ago: I want to help others with their mental health issues. I’ve gotten the basics down on how to live with mental illness, but I know not everyone does.” –Kurt Morris

Razorcake #68 from 2012, featuring Tenement, The Stains, Amy Oden, Dresden

Razorcake #68 from 2012, featuring Tenement

Tenement: Interview by Justin Telephone. Wisconsin punk rock that’s equally poppy, heavy and noisy. In the grand tradition of the Descendents, Ergs!, Die Kreuzen, and John Coltrane.

Razorcake #67 from 2012, featuring The Stains, Cheap Time, Dead Uncle

Razorcake #67 from 2012, featuring The Stains

The Stains: Interview by Jimmy Alvarado. Straight up, an oral of one of the godfathers of Los Angeles punk rock. For a band of this caliber, you’d better believe this will be a two parter.

Razorcake 105: Kathleen Hanna, Chris Dodge, MariNoami, Steve Albini

“My dad had a Xerox machine at his work when he got a promotion. I was like, “I gotta get my butt on that thing.” I was so psyched.” –Kathleen Hanna

Razorcake 104, featuring Caves, Kitten Forever, The Elected Officials, and One Punk’s Movie Guide

Razorcake 104

“All lofty political ideas aside, I feel like the most affirming thing you could hear is to have other teenage girls say, ‘I saw your band so now I’m in a band.’” –Corrie, Kitten Forever

Razorcake #63 from 2011, featuring Ben Cook, Tutu & The Pirates, Jack Grisham, and Found Footage Festival

Razorcake #63 from 2011

“I don’t want to be, “Why is everyone so stupid?” But it’s hard not to think like that. I just try and ignore the fact that people are so fucking clueless about music.” –Ben Cook
