MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #337: $4, newsprint, 8 ¼” x 10 ¾”, 128 pgs.

I still get a kick out of MRR. The smell and feel of it takes me right back to a 1990 high school study hall vibe. I never have complaints about this classic zine, and this issue does not disappoint. Interviews include Zack Carlson and Bryan Connolly discussing their amazing Destroy All Movies!!! book, early Cleveland punk legend John Morton, Nux Vomica, and others. Also included are columns, reviews, a tribute to Poly Styrene, and a stellar scene report of my hometown Buffalo, NY. Fast forward twenty-one years to the present and some kid in a tenth grade study hall is enjoying the fuck out of this issue, just like I did back in the day. Hopefully they won’t outgrow it, either. –Art Ettinger (MRR, PO Box 460760, San Francisco, CA94146, maximumrocknroll.com)
