Fat Wreck Chords $$-??

I always enjoy when these come out because they are accompanied by a disk and because each one has a unique story. The last one is going to be rather difficult to conquer because the art and the story were incredible. Then again, Sick Of It All has been doing that for awhile. So this issue it’s the Subhumans’ turn and they don’t disappoint. The cover is cool; the Subhumans icon skull is fully pronounced against a background of screaming hordes. The visual follows the lyrics to “SubvertCity,” which is a song that details a rise against the system and what it changes. The art has that Trencher look to it, if any of you remember that comic of the same name. The great thing about these books is that it puts a face on songs and groups, kind of like when Batman, Spiderman or the Hulk get lifted from pulp to the big screen. I think Fat Wreck Chords has a good thing going here and if I ever bowl near them at Punk Rock Bowling, I’m gonna tell them so. I’m not real sure how Joe Public can get these, seeing that a good friend’s wife has been looking for the last copy high and low with no success now wants mine. I’m gonna have to look into this for you all because they really are excellent reading and viewing. (“Subvert City” artwork by: simon.gane@virgin.net)
