Abductors interview for In Effect – and IQNM #5 update

Up now on ineffecthardcore.com – check out my interview with Stefan from the Abductors. This interview was six months in the making and almost didn’t happen. First we tried a video interview with the full lineup (plus most of Step 13) outside the Abductors/Step 13 show in Brooklyn back in May. An audio snafu rendered that footage unusable, and we had not yet connected to reschedule a Skype or email interview. Yet we did not give up! Stefan came down to ride bikes on a recent Saturday, and before we could head to Pizzeria La Rosa afterwards, we shot an impromptu interview at the North White Plains train station.

Shoutout to Mike for filming, and Chris Wynne for your eternal patience.

What have I been up to with I Question Not Me? Very slowly working on #5 in the middle of a longer form project and the occasional review for In Effect. I have also permanently given up on doing a rap zine, though the M.O.P. crossword might be repurposed for IQNM. Issue 5 (the Five Fingers of Death issue) coming sometime in 2020?

Live for Now: 2 New Reviews on In Effect

I was honored that Chris recently asked me to start reviewing for In Effect, and am happy to contribute to such a storied publication. Check out my Mase EP review from a few weeks ago, and the Countdown demo review that went up earlier this week on InEffectHardcore.com (scroll down, it’s currently the third one down)

In today’s Bmize spiritual telepathy news, me and zine penpal Dylan of Drug Dogs both started listening to Wrecking Crew more frequently again because of the Countdown demo!

See you at the Superbowl and the day after show.
