MRR reviews the stowaways issue #5

Maximum Rocknroll #347-APR-2012
reviewed the stowaways issue number five. pick up a copy.

THE STOWAWAYS #5 January 2012 / $1
8.5 X 11 - copied - 20 pgs
Complete with show and record reviews, Media Blitz tour journal, letter section, and an interview with Creatures. Christopher accepts tapes, records, and CD for review, so feel free to send them in. Show reviews consist of musings about how a band's "drum set really sucks" or a venue being "the lamest frat boy college bar." My recommendation would be to talk more about the music versus how dumb you think a band's a name is... but on the flip side, the music reviews are spot on. There is a heavy focus on mundane details like the aforementioned from the reviews, but the reviews give a clear picture of what a record will sound like. I undertand this zine is on the newer side, so keep it up. (AE) Amelia Eakins
