This zine was entertaining because it clings so desperately to the “old school,” even completely washed up rehash stuff! Guys (because it’s so utterly male. I doubt there’s a woman on staff), I hate to break it to you, but the punk world didn’t stop churning out creative music in 1980. There’s been new, inventive renditions of punk styles for over twenty-five years now! With that said, this is well written and some of it was pretty engaging. I learned a lot about which European bands from 1977 were still at it and which ones got back together and even about a few bands I had never heard of from that era that were releasing posthumous records. I wish a lot of the interviews were more in depth and critical though, particularly the one with four men who are now touring as the Dead Kennedys. I know those three former members aren’t the most articulate bunch, but it’d be nice to at least give them some difficult questions. Maybe it’s a cultural Irish thing not to ask rude or invasive questions. –Joe Biel (Riot 77, Cian Hynes, 31 St. Patrick Park, Clondalkin, Dublin 22, Ireland)
