The continued existence of MRR, inarguably the most influential zine in history, makes me very happy. Still the premiere way of finding out what’s going on in the subculture, MRR remains filled to the gills with useful information and witty columns. This issue’s high point is the second part of a thorough piece on We Got Power, the legendary zine that spawned We Got Power Films. It’s also loaded with reviews, columns, and interviews with bands including Homicide, Born Wrong, and Shaved Women. You really can’t go wrong with MRR. Dirtying my fingers since I first picked it up in 1990, MRR persists to satisfy. –Art Ettinger (MRR, PO Box 460760, SF, CA 94146, maximumrocknroll.com)
