Against Me!: Interview by Todd. Yeah, we’ve never heard of these guys either, but we’re hoping you’ll want to check them out anyway.

Zero Boys: Interview by Mike Frame. Midwestern godhead. The band behind one of THEE most amazing punk records ever. Not even Ben Weasel could hate this band.

The Holy Kiss: Interview by Kat Jetson and Gabe Hart. Well, they talk about Kirk Hammett wearing an exercise suit and they talk about nearly tripping over dead bodies, so you know you’re in for a good ol’ time.

This Moment in Black History: Interview by Ben Lybarger. Cleveland skronk! This interview includes the immortal observation: “Your armpits smell like Haiti. I mean, that ain’t right.” How can you lose?

The Downbeat 5: Interview by Brian Mosher. Boston rock and roll featuring the former guitarist of DMZ and his ex-wife. How often do you hear such a phrase?
