Over the past six years, Daniel Sinker's Chicago-based Punk Planet has grown from being one of the better self-published fanzines dedicated to punk culture to a professional, income-generating publication that hasn't lost sight of the ideals and uncompromising style that first garnered it attention. This collection of interviews reflects one of Punk Planet's most important qualities: Sinker's willingness to look beyond the small world of punk bands and labels and deal with larger issues. With interview subjects ranging from punk icons Thurston Moore and Ian MacKaye to Noam Chomsky and representatives of the Central Ohio Abortion Access Fund, as well as many other artists, musicians, and activists, this book is not solely for the tattooed, pierced teenage set. All of the interviews are probing and well thought out, the questions going deeper than most magazines would ever dare; and each has a succinct, informative introduction for readers who are unfamiliar with the subject. Required reading for all music fans. Vincent Au, New York
