Issue 8 is here and fat as hell. It's the biggest issue yet at 48 pages cover to cover. This one has a huge history/discography of the noisey, unsettling & socially-ill equipt, GOB from Reno, Nevada. It comes complete with an interview with GOB backbone, Jon Kortland. Another big feature is the "Zines Vs Blogs" feature where 5 zine creators and 5 blog makers are interviewed about how the two co-exist and what their relationship is in 2010. Besides that there is an interview with DC's DEATHRATS, an excellent piece called, "Death Of The Music Industry," where Scott Bentz celebrates the slow-but-inevitable death of the parasitic music industry. There's a bit more RUPTURE info for all you fanatics out there, as well as columns by yours truly and our two new permanent columnists, Bob Suren (of Sound Idea Distribution, FAILURE FACE, MURDER-SUICIDE PACT fame) and Krystina K (of RIPSHIT) to offer up their opinions on some shit, and of course, reviews and tons of toner stains. All of this coupled with a letter I received and an article called, "The Politics of Becoming Jaded," add an unintentional, but undenyable theme to the issue: What of hardcore now, and where is it going?
