Mike Faloon has been writing about punk rock for a long time, so it’s only natural that he’d eventually write a zine about enjoying punk rock as you get older. This is a collection of pieces all revolving around that concept: journals of taking longer periods of time to really analyze records alongside adult responsibilities, some of Mike’s trademark “(band) versus (band)” discussions, as well as examples of how you don’t necessarily need to grow beyond something, as opposed to just figuring out how to adapt. It’s refreshingly honest and an interesting read. (Trivia note: I was at the comedy show in question, where I accidentally swallowed most of a fake mustache.) –Joe Evans III (Mike Faloon, PO Box 469, Patterson, NY 12563)
