Also included are lots of record reviews, show reviews (sometimes displaying the animosity between DC and NY punks, and a great piece about going on tour with Scream and G.I. to California, being interviewed by Tim Yohannan on the Maximum Rock and Roll radio show (“all Tim Y. wanted to talk about was the straight edge”), and the Cali kids (“the crowd in SF is weird, really image conscious Oi-clones”).
