i'm not hip to most of the bands they write about in razorcake, a diy punk 'zine that's also a nonprofit, since i'm the kind of old man that feels as though ray and teague are speaking venusian when they start talking about '90s punk shit at stooge prac. but since i snaked a copy from 1919 hemphill the last time HIO played there (thanks, jamie!), it's dominated my bathroom reading, and i mean that in a good way. overall, the quality of writing is better than in most music rags these days, and they actually do long-form interviews/essays on topics pertaining to the zeitgeist. i need to put my money where my mouth is and subscribe, since i'm not sure our 1919 stands correspond with their publishing schedule.
