Here’s a rarity for you, howabout mentioning a ‘zine? It’s not a review of sorts, as the latest issue of Punk Planet is probably beyond any of that, as it’s huge. You just don’t see it in the UK all that often. However, despite difficulties in tracking it down, I encourage anyone with even the remotest interest in printed words to find a copy of the latest issue wherever you can. #55 (May-June) is a special, dedicated to all kinds of printed matter this time around. What you get is a plethora of interviews with all sorts of people from different disciplines and backgrounds, each feature being accompanied by a sample of the interviewee’s writing. Of most notable interest to the general indie-rock afficionado is Everett True waxing lyrical about Careless Talk Costs Lives, but there’s a fantastic amount of many more interesting things.

I cannot stress enough how incredibly inspiring ths issue was.Go read it, go do something positive.

David can always be relied on to end his e-mails with one of those 'np: blah blah' things in order to remind us of how much more music he listens to every day than anybody else. His interests include rockin ' out in a major style as guitarist in Souvaris, throwing frisbees from tall buildings "just to see what happens" and simply kickin' back with his bitches in a gold-plated jacuzzi.
