What we have for you here is a beautiful example of how I wish Termbo would always work. Way back in the “End of Summer 2010” reviews section Young Steve did a nice write up of the then just-reissued Tunnelrunners 7″ on Sing Sing. We post the reviews, and a short bit after that someone from the band sends an e-mail to Termbo HQ, which is forwarded to (SB). Band member and fan make contact, and this wonderful interview with Madoc Roberts of The Tunnelrunners ensues. If only it always worked out this well. Thanks to Madoc and Steve for giving Termbo the chance to publish this, I really enjoyed reading it and hope you all do as well. We’ll be back soon with reviews. Then an epic interview with The Sleaze, if they finish…


Hey now. Back again. Firstly, without much ado and serious delay, I have the 2011 Year End lists from the staff, fashionably late as always. I’m going to run with the gimmick that we do them in February to remind people of what might have been white noise had we printed them in January like most normal publications. Sure. Secondly, we have a bunch of cassette/demo reviews with more to come soon (zines too). And some regular ol’ record reviews as well, and interviews, and other stuff we have backlogged here. We’ll get a little more regular from here on out. Obviously since the last time we spoke the world of underground/DIY music lost a major talent in Brendon Annesley , a kid I will miss corresponding and collaborating with. It was an honor to be published in NGL and a thrill to have known him for too short a time. Looking back at my own year end list (which I had written well before the tragedy of his death) it’s a bit disheartening to know we won’t have him carrying on with us from here on out. His taste, insight and sense of humor were all top notch, and all things I will remember fondly and miss greatly. RIP Brendon.
