Apr 19, 2016

This is part one of old school U.K. zine Artcore’s thirtieth anniversary issue. It features interviews with Henry Rollins, Pillage, and Tau Cross, among others. That’s mixed in with articles on NYC peace punk, Randy “Biscuit” Turner, and more, along with a slew of reviews and a free, green 7” split that ranges from the shout-along, political punk of Oi Polloi and the blazing crust of Grand Collapse. Artcore’s a thorough and dedicated zine. It’s cool to see them continuing to approach punk with a fiery political and critical eye. –Chris Terry (
