We try to keep up on album reviews here, but obviously suck at that. Regardless, we still listen to everything despite rarely getting around to writing about it or managing to get the writers to actually turn stuff in. We’re a fucking punk zine, what did you expect?
The end of the year means promises of better things, but also a look back at wasn’t completely awful in the last spin around the sun. It also means all the year-end lists from your favorite opinionated assholes.
In this installment, we hear about the top 5 record picks from Monty O’Blivion — head honcho of Manual Sex Drive and former member of local favorites The Limit Club and The Video Nasties. He’s pretty much one of the most opinionated people you’ll ever meet and possibly the best fucking guitar player to come from The Valley in recent history (even if he’ll never admit it.) You can check out all you need to know about MSD and even hear some of their tunes here.-The Ed
It’s no secret that we may be a little excited for the 666th Annual Punk Rock Halloween Bash coming up this Friday and Saturday at The Yucca Tap Room. To be fair, we’ve been patiently waiting for months while watching details about the show unravel. The anticipation has been painful, and now the reckoning upon us.

While this one isn’t exactly new, it was sent to us out of the blue from a Belgian band of old punks, Missiles of October, and was definitely a nice surprise. You like surprises, right?
We’re back again with a round of new and upcoming punk documentaries. Obviously, most won’t be easy to find, but there are some really great ones that will be ready for your eyeballs soon enough.
Join us. Learn some stuff. Hear some great stories.
A look at the subversive movement that started during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980’s and continues strong today. Covering zines, films, bands, art, hi-jinks, and more from the likes of Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis P-Orridge, John Waters, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Peaches, and many others you might just have heard of. Get your fill of rad-queer, riot grrrl, diy punk, camp, and awesome right here! This one is making the film circuit and will hopefully be out for the rest of us soon.
If you haven’t swung by our calendar lately, or even worse, live under a pile of rocks, we here at AZ KAOS would like to let you know that the next three weeks in Arizona are jam packed with punk festivals and a lot of the legendary old guys coming through with shows. We hope you’ve saved those pennies because the avid show goer could easily drop rent catching all the good bands playing soon.
