Maximum'R'Roll Issue #30

Maximum'N'Roll is one of the most widely distributed zines in the world. It's a monthly fanzine dedicated to supporting the underground punk rock scene.

MRR started in 1977 as a punk rock radio show featuring Tim Yohannan (who became the zine's publisher), Jeff Bale, Ruth Schwartz (owner of Mordam distribution), and Jello Biafra (of the Dead Kennedys). Maximum'N'Roll zine first appeared in 1982 as the newsprint booklet in the "Not So Quiet On the Western Front" compilation LP (released on Alternative Tentacles). It developed into a monthly newsprint zine that helped galvanize the punk community throughout the '80s and '90s. Today MRR has published over 260 issues. And while not "the punk bible" it once was because of so many web resources and other zines, MRR still features a wealth of punk band interviews, news, music and zine reviews, columnists, and scene reports each month. Current columnists include Mykel Board, Slug & Lettuce editor Christine Boarts, and hardcore singer Felix Von Havoc.
