Welcome to another issue of trakMARX.com - & what a liver damaged selection of guitar abuse we have for you this fall. Estranged, hurt, confused & feeling very sorry for itself but thats enough about Encoule. The lazy bastard will always use absolutely any excuse to do as little as possible but hes always available for the awards ceremonies! Sound Familiar?
Anyway, its been down to me to pull this issue from the jaws of defeat & I sincerely hope you enjoy it more than you have enjoyed any of the previous shite weve fired at you over the last 2 & a bit years. To be honest, I feel Im superior to Encoule in every way so I hope you agree & read every damn word! (Remember dont be a twat & squint at a screen for hours sending yer phone bill through the roof decide what you want to read - & print the fucker off. Thats the idea. Its a FANZINE).
So, without further ado heres what 11 holds in store for you:
Leamington Spas finest, The Shapes, take us through their career with a microscope & a nitcomb. The Libertines are dissected & appraised. Scout Niblet is investigated by Nat Shooter. Dave Gingoblin brings you tales from the Turbonegro boat trip. The Electric Eels, The Hospitals, The Agenda & The Mars Volta prove theres more to America than The Fuckin Strokes. Post Punk, The Modern Lovers, SniffinGlue & Sex. What more could yer average punk/punkette want from a humble periodical?
Like a badger stuffed with an elk tMx 11 is bursting at the seems with anguish, angst, anger & ambiguity. Come with me now as I lead you by the hand...wine is strong, man is stronger, women are even stronger & the truth conquers all.
Thats all you need to know.
