Half Off (Problem Child #8)

The issues I have of Problem Child – edited by Paul Sennett from Hayes (Middlesex) – are #7 (1986), #8 (’87) & #8½ (’88). These are subtitled ‘National U.K. Punkzine’. Probably because a whole bunch of people (including Nick Royles, … Continue reading

Nations On Fire (Rabougri #1)

This interview is rather exceptional… It’s one of the more challenging interviews with someone of ‘Nations On Fire’ (bassist Jeroen L., nót Ed) in a period where the band that wanted to be “powerful, political, personal” started to crumble. Jaak … Continue reading
