In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever <>, you'll find (among other things):

Interview- Kansas/Midwest punk up close by Jack Partain
"or every Darby and Sid there are a couple of dozen guys who lugged their gear around, struggled to make their band sound good behind a soundboard, replaced their microphones, or rented the venue for the show. Those are the guys with the real stories, the good stories. Bob Cutler is one of those guys. He has lived a life in punk rock since the late 1970's."

Interview- Belfast punk style by David DiPietro
"Henry Cluney formed Stiff Little Fingers in Belfast, Ireland in 1977. He wrote and played on the first 4 classic SLF albums: Inflammable Material (1979), Nobody's Heroes (1980) and Go for it (1981). He also appeared on the superb live album Hanx! (1980), and the final studio album of the classic era, Now Then... (1982) before the band split in 1983."

Interview- London would-be punk legends by John Wisniewski
"In the onslaught of UK punk in the mid/late '70's, one of the bands that stood out in the scene but didn't quite get their due was a London foursome who were one of the earliest groups, playing with the big names then and there. Subway Sect's record output was two incendiary 1978 singles. But nothing else was forthcoming until a reconstituted version of the band put out their 1980 LP What's the Matter Boy? with the group then splitting up a few years later. Singer/founder Vic Godard tells the story of the beginnings of the band, how the Pistols and Clash management encouraged them early on, what the punk scene was like from his view and how he stays in touch with his former bandmates."
