MRR reviews Roman Candles Gracious Living 7"

Maximum Rocknroll #360 - MAY - 2013
reviewed Roman Candles 'Gracious Living' 7"

THE ROMAN CANDLES - "Gracious Living / Yellow Smile"
A couple songs that exist somewhere between the folk punk of Plan-it-X style jams and the pop punk of a band like ONION FLAVORED RINGS. These are unpretentious straightforward songs written by a college kid ostensibly about post high school malaise and dead friends, but are more accurately about being young and feeling disenfranchised (P$) (Vallejo By Knife)

MRR reviews the Stowaways Issue 13

Maximum Rocknroll #360 - MAY - 2013 
reviewed The Stowaways issue # 13

THE STOWAWAYS #13  / $2 or trade, stamps OK
8.5 X 11 - copied - 34 pgs
An unremarkable and very personal music zine that seems to cover the kinds of bands (hardcore, punk and otherwise) that play fests with mid-level indie rock bands, plus whatever more DIY bands he may hope to catch. The zine starts with show reviews that manage to spill a lot of words while not really saying much: long on trivial information and unarticulated personal thoughts, but short on interesting description. Following the show reviews are two very bland and banal interviews with the Lovely Bad Things and Fugue, whom he introduces by mentioning that members of each band were schoolmates of his. Some record and zine reviews close out this zine, which like the show reviews, have plenty of raving and unnecessary personal details ("I won this record from a radio station!"), but offer little commentary about why the records and zines are good or bad, with the last two pages being reproductions of hand-written fan letters. The layout is next to nonexistent and the photos are pieces of high-contrast crap. (DG) c/o Chris Gordon / 5082 Wendover Rd / Yorba Linda, CA 928886

* I'm down to my last few copies of issue 13. They will be gone by the end of the weekend. If you'd like one email me.
