This time around we'll be featuring interviews with California hardcore legends INFEST, the best live band I've ever seen aka Bogota's MURO, Richmond's own melodious noise mavens SENSUAL WORLD, Oakland's melodic hardcore mavens TUNING, SOLARIZED vocalist and Afrofuturist author ALEX SMITH and finally CVLTNATION founders Sean Reveron & Meghan MacRae. Of course, the first love of this zine is photography and in this issue we'll be featuring features on photographers VERA VELMA (Texas), JOE CALIXTO (Los Angeles), ALEX KRESS (Toronto), & MYRON FUNG (SF Bay Area). And as usual the issue will be rounded out with my own images plus reviews of records, books & zines from around the globe. 



Our take: Latest issue of this beautiful full-color zine. In case you haven’t checked out Razorblades & Aspirin, it started out as a photo zine and gradually came to include more written content. While there is still a heavy emphasis on photography (and all the photos in the zine are beautifully reproduced), it now includes your typical music zine mix of interviews and reviews, though there’s a lot of attention given to projects that aren’t bands. At this point, Razorblades & Aspirin is pretty much the paper of record for the scene that Sorry State focuses on. In particular, I admire Mike’s focus on the culture around punk music. I think sometimes my focus is too narrowly on records, so I can tell you that Muro rips, but Razorblades & Aspirin is where you’ll learn about Casa Rat Trap, the 40-person artist and cultural collective of which Muro is a part. Essential and inspiring reading.
