I think Clamor is trying to take the place of left leaning mags like Harper's and The Nation by not pulling any punches and covering issues from a punk rock perspective. The news isn't as timely as the larger magazines, but in most cases, it's more thorough. Word on the street has it that Clamor was even voted best new magazine by Utne Reader. So it's definitely respectable. This issue has articles on the police strategies surrounding the protest of the Democratic National Convention, an interview with Spitting Image author Jerry Lembcke, a history of skate parks, and a bunch of articles covering different political, economic, and cultural issues. Some kook even wrote an article about the newest Star Wars movie and how it's a metaphor for American society. Geez, where'd they find that guy? Anyway, the quality of the articles varies, but there are definitely some gems in here. -Sean Carswell (Clamor, PO Box 1225, Bowling Green, OH 43402)
