Bullshit Monthly #29 - Hardcore, and lots of it!

Drum roll please... (followed by mosh part) - here's Bullshit Monthly #29!

Five full pages this time, chock full of great hardcore bands. If you can't find anything here that moves you you're either deaf, or confused, or both. There are in-person interviews with Anti-You and Ali who ran shows at The Swamp for 4 years The PDF has links to all the bands and shows. (Or here's JPGs, too - pages 1234, and 5)

Share the link, support the scene, support the bands, support zines. Fanzines forever! Start your own. And also check out BSM #28, 27, and 26. (#26 has links to BSM issues from the 80's, when I was 16-20 years old and said "Rad" a lot.)

Getting into Bullshit Monthly isn't tough. Assuming your band doesn't totally suck, just contact me via the Bullshit Monthly FB page, or email me or whatever. Mail anything physical you want reviewed to: Mike BS. P.O. Box 59321. San Jose, CA 95159.

All the best - Mike Bullshit

PS - UPDATES: Oops – forgot once again to focus on San Jose's long-running Anti-Social (around since 86!). They fall on the punkier side of the punk/HxC spectrum, are worth checking out. Also the Brotherhood LP mentioned on page 1 is in process of being REISSUED right this second! Look for it. And lastly… word on the street is there's an upcoming Coke Bust show, like really soon, in a rather unlikely location. Watch for it.

Bullshit Monthly #28 - File under "H" for Hardcore

It's January, 2014, and here's Bullshit Monthly #28 - a new issue with lots of bands featured who you may or may not have heard of. If you're into HARDxCORE you'll find some real gems here. THE PDF HAS LINKS, both to bands and to shows. So click away and check a band out. (The jpgs don't have links, but are easier to read on some devices - page 1, 2, 3, 4.)

Enjoy. Share with yer pals. Check out #26 and 27, too. (#26 has links to a buncha back issues from the 80's.)

BSM doesn't take ads and is totally free. Contact me if you want your band included - either via the Bullshit Monthly facebook page or by email or whatever. Fell free to toss any records or CDs or whatnot to review to: Mike BS. PO Box 59321. San Jose, CA 95159.

And I really AM trying to write neater. Seriously!

All the best - Mike Bullshit
