MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #329: $4, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 128 pgs.

Issue 329 arrives chock full of the usual MRR goodness including, but not limited to, some top-notch columns, interviews, and reviews. Highlights include the interviews with St. Vitus and England’s Cocksparrer and John Fahy’s thought-provoking column on modern German fascism, as well as the ever-gritty Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore column. Love it or hate it, Maximum Rocknroll is like the New York Times of punk rock and this issue again demonstrates why. –Garrett Barnwell (MRR, PO Box 460760, SF, CA 94146)
