All Photo & Text by Milton Stille New Year’s Eve shows have always been a special kind of beast. Many promoters are apprehensive to compete with every other party in town, and it’s not every band that really wants to deal with that. Furthermore, once you’ve spent as much time behind

When I look at the photography of Edward Sheriff Curtis and the way he captured the pain and beauty of so many of the First Nations people, I’m amazed by what I see. When I think of true evil, I think about how the first peoples of the Americas were slaughtered

One of the biggest influences in my life was this wild hardcore kid that was around 6 years older than me and played in the band America’s Hardcore. I remember the first day I approached Drew Bernstein and asked him if he would silkscreen a t-shirt for me. His answer

I’m pretty sure I have said before that Skateboarding and Punk are connected on so many levels. It makes total sense, because many of the kids that became a part of the 80’s hardcore scene also grew up in the 70’s reading Skateboader magazine while wearing OP shorts. Skateboarding is all about speed, just

Grim Beauty, Despair, History and Suffering are some of the words that come to mind as I admire the photography of José Ortiz-Echagüe. His work is very stark and bleak, which is why I love it so much. You can feel the spirits of the people he photographed coming out of the

I was born into a neighborhood where gangs reigned supreme, and for the first 4 or 5 years of my life I looked up to gangsters from my hood. The sets in my neighborhood in South Central were the Rollin 20’s, the Neighborhood Family and the Black P-Stones, who all rocked the

I grew up at a time when the internet didn’t exist, but we did have MRR with it’s scene reports that turned me on to so many bands from around the world! One reason I enjoy doing these Portraits of 80’s Punk Culture is because all we had back in the

Ian Reid’s Sex, Hood, Skate & Videotape is one of the sickest skate films ever made!!!! I wish still had my copy, because I use to watch that shit on repeat. It has this straight DIY punk spirit about it, but at the same time it showed the real side of

Hey guys! While scrolling through my latest favourite tumblr, 80’s Hard Rock & Metal, I realized who invented the “duck face” so popular in celebrity/everyone’s selfies! It was the 80s/early 90s hair metal heartthrobs who first popularized this totally obnoxious sucky-cheeks and protruding lips look in the pages of magazines like

Text & Photos: Colton Bills On December 10th, Wolvhammer brought their soul-crushing black metal to a rather small club in the heart of Vancouver for a vet lucky audience. Opening the show was local act Nostrum. They played a crushing set. Afterwards, locals SEER played loud and fast and good.
