What’s the last thing a drummer says in a band?
“Hey guys, why don’t we try one of my songs?”
Punk hasn’t died yet and neither has Rat Scabies.
It’s been over 20 years since he left his seat in The Damned and twice as long since he helped pioneer what would become one of the most influential sounds in Punk Rock. Read More
The people of Phoenix got quite an eye-opener while flipping through his week’s print issue of local media publication, The Phoenix New Times. Folks in search of things to do in The Valley for the holidays were greeted with an ad for local band Slowpoke‘s Annual Holiday Reunion Show at The Yucca Tap Room, which sounds tame enough, only this ad features a pro-rape graphic taking a jab at the recent #MeToo movement front and center.

Greetings my dear hellions, and welcome to AZKAOS.COM v2.0!
You may have noticed that things look a little different around here and may also be wondering if you’re in the right place. That isn’t really a question I can answer for you, but after more than a few years, an update was probably due. So here’s a quick run down of what the fuck happened.
In the vein of always giving credit where credit is due, and as co-founder and former head editor of AZK, I feel that the loss of Miles “Slime” Berrett is much bigger than any of us could imagine. He was always one of my favorite desert dwellers and a solid friend, in addition to being one of the original AZ Kaos family members. A handful of the original zines would have never made it to press on time had Miles not pitched in so much work. It most certainly wouldn’t have had half the distribution or witty insight into forgotten gems, had he not darkened our doorstep. I feel that the least I could do is shine light on some of the things that he poured his passion into that we may have forgotten or not known about in the first place.
