"Maggot Brain is a full-color, quarterly magazine edited by noted Detroit scribe Mike McGonigal: 100+ pages packed with phenomenal content -- art, music, literature, unpublished archival material, and more -- with a simple promise to only exist on the printed page. Cover story: Why feminist punk pioneers the Raincoats still matter. Unseen, amazing photos of AC/DC from their first US tour in 1977. Celebrated indie auteur filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's playful newspaper collages -- great interview plus lots of never before seen images! Brilliant Americana guitarists Marisa Anderson and William Tyler on their debut collaboration. Composer Terry Riley and percussionist Hamid Drake on the importance of husband and wife spiritual jazzers Moki and Don Cherry. 14 pages of rare comics by Pee Wee's Playhouse designer Gary Panter -- Jimbo goes to jail! Mike Turner talks to rising Colombian BMX star Julian Molina. Plus, features on vocalist Merry Clayton; New Hampshire's neo-shoegazers Headroom; The Clean's fiery 1980s offshoot band Stephen; catching up with the great band Califone's main force Tim Rutili; a three-page comic on electronics weirdo Mort Garson, who made music to talk to your plants; America's finest essayist Luc Sante takes a gallows turn in this issue's column; and way more."
