Here is a new zine (and apparently a new record label and distributor) that looks promising. It features a lot of older punk rock bands like Final Conflict, SNFU and Bl’ast and a younger band called Soul Search. In 1985, I put out a zine that featured Final Conflict and SNFU in the same issue, so it is fun to read an update from these two bands. I’m still a huge fan of Final Conflict. I have had a Final Conflict sticker on every mode of transportation I’ve ever owned throughout my adult life and I’m extremely happy the 1985 Demo was released on CD last year on Tankcrimes. Like most older punk rockers, I’ve also seen a lot of great punk shows. SNFU played Muskegon twice in the ‘80s and both concerts are in my top ten concerts of all time. Currently, SNFU has a different lineup than they did on the “classic” records, but it’s good to see that they’re playing and that Chi Pig seems to be doing okay. I’ve never liked Bl’ast, so I didn’t bother with their interview. Not Like You seems to interview a lot of older bands, which is cool, but the future of punk rock is the new stuff that we haven’t heard. I hope that this zine will continue to focus on newer bands. –Steve Hart (102 Richmond Ave. SE, Albuquerque, NM97106).
