This issue collects interviews from Latino hardcore band La Armada from Chicago (by way of the Dominican Republic), Juggling Jugulars from Finland, and the bands Novelas and Not A Part of It from the writer Ryan’s hometown of Eugene, OR. There is also a chat with Anna Vo who helped organize a “Punx of Color”-centered festival in Portland called Intersect Fest, and an interview/primer on women’s-oriented self-defense with founders of the women’s self-defense group Warrior Sisters. The overwhelmingly inclusive and positive vibe that Ryan makes an effort to promote in his writing makes this a pretty engaging read. Appropriately enough, he kicks off this issue with an essay where he reflects at a recent 7 Seconds’ show on punk’s longevity and efforts to strive for positive changes. I highly approve of the La Armada and Juggling Jugular’s interviews that exposed me to these pretty furious-sounding bands for the first time. Seriously, look up the La Armada Bandcamp page. That is some high-grade hardcore. (Mishap, PO Box 5841, Eugene, OR 97405, [email protected])
