RAZORBLADES AND ASPIRIN #14, $10, 8½” x 11”, glossy, 80 pgs.

Jul 20, 2022

This slick, glossy hardcore zine by punk veteran photographer and writer Michael Thorn is predominantly a photozine but offers so much more with in-depth band interviews and current release reviews. This issue focuses on interviews with punk photographers Zach Rogers, Matt Gabell, Chrisy Salinas, and Salad Days cinematographer and photojournalist Jim Saah, and his new book In My Eyes, a punk photo comp from 1982-1997. There’s also a cool interview with Roger Miret (Agnostic Front), and newbie bands Jade Dust, Scowl, Haemers, Bootlicker (!), and Public Acid. Also “sound” reviews—a compiled list of new(ish) releases. In full color and black and white, rich and in-depth photos with a striking layout. Eye candy plus a fun, easy read on a lazy night in. –Camylle (PO Box 23173, Richmond, VA 23223, razorbladesandaspirin.com)
