This issue will feature interviews with photographers Alison Braun (In The Pit), Chris Boarts Larson (Slug & Lettuce), and Matthew Kadi. Plus lengthy discussions with some of my favorite bands going right now: HARAM (New York City), ENZYME (Australia), INITIATE (Los Angeles), STRIKE ANYWHERE (Richmond) and ANTIMOB (Greece) as well as a chat with Punks Around zinester, Alexander Herbert, about his recently published book "What about Tomorrow?: An Oral History of Russian Punk from the Soviet Era to Pussy Riot,"  as well as a photo essay of the recent protests in Richmond by Nick Hancock and a reprint of the great Black Dots: An Afropunk Primer by Chris Murdoch. 

 



Our take: Latest issue of Razorblades & Aspirin, which has established itself as one of the most important zines in the current punk scene. As ever, there’s a heavy focus on photography, including interviews with photographers Chris Boarts Larson, Alison Braun, and Matthew Kadi, and tons of beautifully reproduced (often full-color) photographs throughout the magazine. I know I complained about the copy editing in the last issue, but the writing in this issue is excellent at every level, not only well edited but also the interviews are deep and insightful, even if you aren’t a huge fan of the bands being interviewed. There’s also a photo essay on the recent Black Lives Matter protests in Richmond and lots of talk about and reflection on the protests and other current events throughout the zine. While some of my favorite zines over the past ten or more years have been self-consciously nostalgic, Razorblades & Aspirin feels focused on the here and now. Essential reading, if you ask me.
