Content-wise this issue we’ve got Roddy Moreno from The Oppressed taking us through his trials and tribulations of a lifetime spent defending the roots of Skinhead culture. Slim Jim Phantom requires little introduction as he reflects on his years of stand up Rockabilly drumming which commenced with the birth of The Stray Cats, whilst the unstoppable John Robb of Gold Blade hardly takes a breath as he brings us up to date with everything from playing live, to writing books and even the odd TV appearance as an 1980″s pundit!! New York City”s Turbo AC’s have been twinning the sounds of Motorhead with Dick Dale for long enough now to become accomplished at it and their lead man Kevin Cole is only too eager to fill us in! Finally it’s back to the 80’s once more for that decade’s greatest youth culture, 2 Tone – Pauline Black of The Selecter doesn’t mince words in typical fashion and gives a fine interview deconstructing all that makes up her band and much more besides. Brian Young of Rudi/Sabrejets remembers the legend that was Link Wray, whilst Boz does likewise for the mammoth Pig Champion. Naturally there’s also the slew of reviews (records, books, DVD’s) exclusive live photography and some snazzy graphics that you’ve all come to expect!!
