BALD CACTUS, #31 (A5, 24 pages, $1+SASE) Just as it says on the cover, "Still a thoroughly, unashamedly, stuck in the 80s cut ‘n’ paste Punk Rock Zine". That pretty much sums up BALD CACTUS and what’s more, it’s great! In this issue you get interviews with such cracking bands as HDQ, JADED EYES, EPIC PROBLEM, POLICE BASTARD and an excellent vintage interview with CRINGER from 1991. Interviews are to the point and contain that classic Cactushumour. Elsewhere we have the usual splattering of reviews and, of course, the aspect of BC that really sets it apart, which is Andy’s own little editorials that appear throughout. This issue we read about posers wearing DESCENDENTS shirts, UK compilation albums (top marks for getting 'Mind Pollution' in there), Andy biting the bullet and signing up to... wait for it..... Facebook, and passion for this thing we call Punk Rock. There is a barbed sense of humour running through most of those, with Andy not pulling any punches on some of his own past errors and certainly not on some of the more mongoloid behaviour of the populace at large. Layouts are double column throughout with a photocopied print job. BC is always a pleasure to read be it for Andy’s eclectic but smart taste in music or his humour. Neat badge selection on the cover too. Please do note that the old PO Box address is now redundant. If you wanna copy (and you fucking should!)

and a review of the Protag memorial gig,  RIP Protag
