Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #8, SEPTEMBER 1983: The third in the Life is series. This one's got two live GERMS classics to its credit, plus neat stuff by the MINUTEMEN, MODERN WARFARE, ANTI, MOOD OF DEFIANCE, HARI KARI, SIN 34, ARTISTIC DECLINE, and MODERN TORTURE. REDD KROSS disappoint with their "metal" number, and SHATTERED FAITH is so-so. Then there's nine more bands that get into electronics, folk, jazz, etc., for the adventurous.
