In case any of you saw that mysterious TERRIBLE FEELINGS 7” review that I had up here for a split second and are wondering where it went: I posted that here by accident.  That was supposed to go on my punk zine’s Tumblr (over here in case you’re interested, and you’re cool if you are and you’re lame if you’re not).

Click the link above if you wanna read the back issues for free.  Lotsa cool interviews (NEGATIVE APPROACH, THE KIDS, MASSHYSTERI, BRUTAL KNIGHTS, WHITE WIRES, MEAN JEANS, GERM ATTAK, SECRET POLICE… lotsa good shit), and lotsa bullshit (bad tattoos, a Thai hell garden, how to shrink a head, free band names, The To Don’t List, snakehead fish, how to mosh… tons more).  Oh, and comix.

As reviewed regularly in MAXIMUMROCKNROLL and THRASHER.


If you’re into punk, ‘follow’ the Tumblr of my punk zine, Standard Issue.  I just put a bunch of new record reviews up there(mostly of GRAVE MISTAKE releases), and there’s more coming soon.

If any bored motherfuckers out there wanna be NOT bored, I’ve got a punk ‘zine called Standard Issue, and I’ve been putting record reviews up on its Tumblr lately (I just put up a NIGHT BIRDS review and a buncha others).  You can also read a bunch of the back issues if you go to the sidebar and click on the links where it says ‘you can read it for free here’.  Not complicated.  Hit it up.

I gotta punk zine called Standard Issue, so if you like punk, go check out the Tumblr for it.  Hell, if you wanna get nuts, go ahead and FOLLOW the Tumblr for it.

Right now, I’m throwing a bunch of unpublished reviews up on there.  So far, we’ve got a BASTARDATOR review, a GERM ATTAK review, a PREGNANCY SCARES review, a SHIRKS review, a COKE BUST review, an INDIAN WARS review, a review of hanging out at Ken & Todd’s apartment, and a review of eucalyptus mint soap from Bath & Body works.


Oh yeah, in case you’re confused, Standard Issue’s rating system is: everything’s either SHITTY, KINDA SHITTY, or NOT SHITTY.
