Eddy Current Suppression Ring: Interview by Todd Taylor. They sound like they’re a professional wrestling move, but they’re actually a pretty rad punk/garage rock band from Australia. By that we mean “the best of both worlds.”

Interview by Dave Brainwreck and Brian Damage. If you could take a band from the first wave of ‘70s punk, have them fit into today’s modern DIY scene, and they managed to get into even deeper shit, they’d probably sound like these guys.

Oi Polloi:
Interview by Kevin Dunn. Scotland’s premier socio/political punk band, who aren’t humorless jerks. Before there was Craig Fergesun, there were these guys.

Bruce Moreland:
Interview by Ryan Leach. He’s been in tons of bands, like Wall Of Voodoo, The Skulls, and Nervous Gender. The latest in our series of interviews/profiles of punk lifers.
