PP57 has a sit-down discussion with the legendary NICK CAVE about growing out of being an angry young man and into a relatively content adult. Truly one of the masters of the underground, Cave has produced some of the most memorable albums of the last 25 years. In this sprawling, long-form interview, Punk Planet contributing editor Trevor Kelley talks with Cave about his lengthy career and moving back to independents. To compliment the Cave interview, Punk Planet contacted award-winning comic artist EDDIE CAMPBELL (From Hell, Bacchus) to do an amazing cover illustration.
Punk Planet 57 also features Jeff Guntzel's REPORT FROM BAGHDAD. Having traveled to Iraq over a half-dozen times during the pre-war era of sanctions and starvation, Guntzel goes back two weeks after Bush declared the US's "mission accomplished" only to discover that it's anything but. With an ancient city in ruins and a population scared and angry, Guntzell brings his unique reporting to this tumultuous situation. In addition to these lead features, PP57 features interviews with TRAVIS MORRISON of the DISMEMBERMENT PLAN about the end of the band; DC buzz band BLACK EYES drops some knowledge; North Dakota's JUNE PANIC talks about the enlightenment; the CURSED get pissed; and the Indigo Girls' AMY RAY interviews Native American activist WINONA LADUKE.
Articles in PP57 include a look at DEPORTATIONS AFTER SEPTEMBER 11th; the FCC'S APPROVAL OF MEDIA CONSOLIDATION; and a hilarious diary from a 48 HOUR SLEEP DEPRIVATION STUDY. All that, plus the columns, reviews (almost 500 records), DIY and more!
