From the Editor:

It takes me forever to do anything anymore. I suppose I
really should go back on my medication, Desoxyn, yet I know
then I'll really work myself to death so it's like do I go
for broke or chill? At 34, I feel going for broke is the only
way to go...

So I'm going back on the medication for my ADD, knowing yeah
I'll function better, but I will be like a damn lion in a
slaughter house!

Hell wit it, let's kick it!!!

INTERVIEW
**************************************************************

TWO MAN ADVANTAGE
BY BARRY LONDON
The guys in Two Man Advantage pour their hearts into songs about the glories
of hockey, beer, and punk rock like Guinness on tap. After a recent release
show for the band's second album, "Don't Label Us," on Go-Kart, I had the
chance to speak to some of the band, namely frontman Drunk Bastard, left-wing
guitarist Captain Bannerman, drummer/goalie Amstel Fuhr, and Myk, who adds
screamed backing vocals. Look for the band on tour this summer.-Barry London

Barry London: Gimme the band history as hockey team.

Drunk Bastard: We met in the farm system working our way up looking for that
break. Amstel was the local zamboni driver at the community center rink. We
played for years in other clubs until we were all drafted to the Two Man
Organization. Skate and I have been dropping the gloves for years and years.
Teemu, Amstel and Myk were all playing with another losing team. And
Captain's been Coach's captain for 15 years now. We drafted the Rookie right
out of high school because we needed a young talented star that really skated
well to finish the team. I found him shooting rocks at cans in a rest stop in
Moosejaw.

Barry London: Why call yourself Drunk Bastard rather than Bud Tkachuk on this
outing?

Drunk Bastard: Bud Tkachuk was traded from Two Man Advantage last season
because of rumors that Keith Tkachuk was being traded to the fucking New York
Rangers. I can't be affiliated with that organization. Also, the last time we
were in Portland I was having an off night and Skate was yelling at me
because I was throwing bottles at the Rookie's head while he was driving.
Skate turned around and said, "You're a drunk bastard," and the name just
stuck. We came back from tour and they got a new jersey for me.

Barry London: Do you feel that being labeled as a "gimmick band" is a
problem? Why or why not?

Drunk Bastard: It's not a problem... it's retarded. Why are we gimmick core?
Why? Because we sing and dress like no other band? Because our passion in
life is beer and hockey? You know, these fucking so-called "punk" kids are so
quick to judge and put a label on something. Let me ask you something: If
you're some kid with a mohawk and looked like you walked off the set of
"Killer Clowns From Outer Space," people would judge and label you a freak or
a junkie. And you would hate that, right? So why the fuck are those kids so
quick to label us? The bottom line is that we play hard, and we play fast.
Our songs are catchy and we got a sense of humor. We don't have to prove
anything We're not looking to make the world a better place, we're a bunch of
old punks that never gave up on a shitty punk rock scene. So "Don't Label
Us"!
Myk: It hurts and helps. You get people to come check you out who wouldn't
normally. People who see you will talk about it to their friends and drag
them along. Two Man is pretty powerful live, and we end up with a lot of fans
of the music who normally aren't into punk, but there are people who can't
get by the appearance. They get a preconceived notion of who or what you are,
and there just isn't convincing them otherwise.
Amstel Fuhr: If we were labeled a gimmick band, the only problem that I could
ever foresee would be if it somehow barricaded people from the music, which
more than stands up on its own.

Barry London: How's you get signed to Go Kart? How do you feel about the
label thus far?

Captain Bannerman: Rich Black, who publishes "Under the Volcano" fanzine,
basically bribed them, I think. Greg Ross caught our show at Nightingales in
March of last year with Phil A. Sheo with the Goods, Plan A Project, and Down
By Law, and just knew he had to snatch us up before Dreamworks or Geffen. The
label has been great so far. Greg is a complete wise-ass, which makes him a
perfect tag-team partner...not to mention he's a Jew -- Jew Power forever!
Dean [Rispler] works like nuts for us, and did an unbelievable job producing
our chaotic asses. Ask me this same question in a year.
Myk: I think Go-Kart is an excellent punk label. They only sign bands they
believe in, and that makes me feel good because we got signed. As for the
label becoming aware of us, I think it was pure harassment from people who
had seen us early on. We played with another Go-Kart band, Plan A Project,
and got a tremendous response from the crowd. The Go-Kart crew was there and
witnessed it first hand. I think they wanted to be part of the force that is
Two Man Advantage.
Amstel Fuhr: The guys at Go-Kart are definitely on the Two Man team.

Barry London: If you had to compare 2MA to another band, who would it be?

Drunk Bastard: Minor Threat. I'm serious. As much as Ian meant every word he
screamed into the mic, so do I, as well. There's a common passion between the
two bands.
Myk: Bon Jovi. People only come to see our sexy frontman anyway.
Captain Bannerman: Every band that has ever existed or ever will exist has
its own personality and uniqueness. I have a hard time comparing a band I'm
in to other bands which already exist. Not to say we're rocket science --
we're not....we're not blazing brand new trails of musical sound...but we
definitely have something to offer that no other band does. But -- if I
absolutely had to -- I guess I'd compare us to Ambrosia or Eric Bell-era Thin
Lizzy. And, I'd compare us by saying there was no comparison.
Barry London: In addition to those playing instruments, Coach, Myk and the
Rookie are also very much part of the band. How'd they get involved, how do
you perceive their roles?
Myk: I got involved because I was in a band with Amstel and Teemu prior to
Two Man. Drunk Bastard and Plain Old Skate would come down after our practice
and they started writing songs together. I used to lend the Bastard my
microphone, and I would hang out and watch them practice. I helped the
Bastard with putting some of the vocals into the songs, which eventually
became my vocals. They started writing growling vocal parts for me when I
wouldn't leave them alone.
Amstel Fuhr: Coach, Myk and the Rook are important to the Two Man. Even
though only four d his way in. He came to our show and said, "You guys need a
coach. You're unorganized." I was like, "OK," and he just never went away.
Then he got his hands on a mic and it's been down hill from there. Myk was in
Pacifier, a local band that we stole two other members from. We felt bad for
him, so we let him tag a long. He does whatever he wants. He has great metal
screams, and he's the only one with long hair that looks like a mullet. The
Rookie is actually the only non member that was actually asked to join the
band. We were in Moose Jaw Canada and we picked him up at a rest stop. He
ended up being out roadie / driver / crowd pleaser. He gives good massages as
well.

Barry London: What do you like most about touring?

Drunk Bastard: Waitresses. I love the greasy spoon waitresses you get in the
midwest. We like giving them rock n' roll names, and then we take a band
photo with our waitress. I've got a book of 400 different waitress that I've
met on tour.
Amstel Fuhr: The chicks. Girls, send in your photos to Amstel Fuhr, c/o this
zine!
Myk: Hanging with the boys and seeing the reaction on the faces of kids in
every new city.
Captain Bannerman: Everything. I like the long drives, I like the shows, I
like seeing new places, and being a part --albeit a very temporary part-- of
different punk scenes across the country. You meet kids who are so different
because of the fact that they grew up in an area of the country, and hence
from a different culture, that I have not been brought up in -- but yet,
there's always that punk rock bond which makes you connect instantly. It's a
wonderful thing. Bringing the rock to the people...you gotta love it.

Barry London: How did the documentary come up? What do you hope it
accomplishes?

Captain Bannerman: The director, Marc Foster, has been a friend of the band
from the beginning and he's been a friend of Skate's LONG before this band
formed. In addition to the film, he has done the vast majority of the artwork
and layout on both of our CDs. The documentary is HIS project, and we just
happen to be the focus of it. He's been working on it since late 1999, and I
think it's not up to us about what we want it to accomplish. That's a
question that is better directed towards Mark himself. The film was NOT made
as a vehicle to promote Two Man Advantage -- in the way a music video would
be made, for example -- but rather as a vehicle for Mark's directorial
talent. I hope he accomplishes everything he wants to with it -- and if, in
the process, it happens to make people more aware of the band -- then that's
an added bonus.
Drunk Bastard: This amazing director named Mark Foster had some time between
jobs and he decided he wanted to come on tour with us to film a documentary.
He followed us around for two years. I'd be taking a dump, and there he was
with that fucking camera. Anyway, he's worked really hard on it. I just saw
the thing, and man, it's good. It would be brilliant if the movie was about a
good band!

Barry London: Are you a "Long Island" band? Why or why not? What does that
mean?

Myk: That's where we got our start, and that's where most of us live, so I
guess we are, but it doesn't seem to be the hinderence it's been for other
Long Island bands.
Drunk Bastard: Good question.. As much as I hate to admit it, we are. We all
lived on Long Island at one time. We all don't live there anymore but our
practice space is there and our P.O. box is there as well. What does it mean?
It means we're very lucky to actually be in a band that leaves the sand bar.
Long Island is only know for the Islanders four cup wins. That was like 20
years ago. Now we're going to put that sand bar back on the map and buy
mansions right next to Howard Stern and Billy Joel.

Barry London: Do you feel that your constant celebration of alcohol abuse may
negatively influence minors?

Myk: No. First off, I wouldn't call it a celebration of "abuse." We don't
sing about getting drunk, falling down and puking...THAT'S abuse! We sing
about having a good time. It's a very light-hearted look at an accepted
social practice. Most of the songs, like "I Want A Beer," or singing praise
to the guy who sells beer at a sports event, are from a very personal
perspective. It's an individual statement. I think beer commercials are far
more damaging than what we do. If you tell a kid not to do something it's far
more compelling than singing about a guy who drives a zamboni and drinks
beer. Your average Coors commercial says, "Don't drink till you're 21, it's
the law." Kids are gonna do the opposite of what they're told to do. Drinking
Coors, now THAT'S alcohol abuse! It's utter garbage!
Amstel Fuhr: Do we constantly celebrate alcohol abuse? maybe we constantly
celebrate alcohol. but those are two different things. I don't think that
anyone that listens to the Two Man is out there trying to emulate us, but if
they are, I trust that they're smart enough to know their limitations. For
chrissakes, the song is called "Do What You Want," which basically means that
"If I don't feel like drinking a fifth of whiskey tonight, I can still hang
with the Two Man and they're cool with it."

Barry London: This record is a lot harder and faster the last. Why?

Drunk Bastard: It's a lot faster and closer to what we're listening to these
days. Why? Why not? We're growing as a band, and as musicians. Also, we were
a little sick of being labeled, so we stepped it up a notch.
Captain Bannerman: There are several reasons for this. First, on a sonic
level, the record was recorded at a different studio, with a different
engineer, and a different producer. Dave Smalley did a great job of
production on the first record, as a matter of fact, I believe he was much
more demanding on us as musicians than Dean was. I believe there are actually
more playing mistakes (I don't expect anyone who's not in the band to pick
them out, of course) on this new record than the first one. But, Dean's
production experience, coupled with the fact that we recorded onto actual
tape (i.e. analog, rather than digital -- which is how "Drafted" was
recorded) led to a sound that was FAR superior than the first record. It
rawer, louder, much more in-your-face and upfront than the first record.
Another reason is that the musicianship got better (I know this seems to
contradict what I just said about mistakes on the record -- but we'll just
have to live with that contradiction). Drunk Bastard's vocals are much
improved, we made much greater use of the background vocal talents of the
Coach, and, for me personally -- I had been playing guitar less than a year
when we recorded "Drafted". A couple of extra years of playing under my belt
naturally made me a better and more confident guitarist. Finally, the
songwriting has improved. Again, a couple of extra years of playing and
writing songs together has developed the chemistry. All of us make
contributions to every song we have, but usually, one person does have the
outline or skeleton of the song, and then we all work on it to make it
complete. Whereas all but about two or three songs on "Drafted" came from
ideas Skate had, the songwriting on "Don't Label Us" is more spread out among
us. Different songwriters leads to more diversity in the songwriting, and I
think that has been a great strength.

Barry London: If the band has a message, what is it?

Drunk Bastard: Play hockey, drink beer.
Myk: We are a family, we all believe in what we do, and have a great time
doing it together.
Captain Bannerman: Yes, the band does have a very important message. It's
that punk rock can be a vehicle for going nuts and having a great time. Punk
rock is a great vehicle for lots of things: for political commentary, for
activism, for personal feelings to be expressed.....but why can't it also
make you go off and thrash around, too? That's what we're here for. It's a
party, and we hope to bring the party to every show we play. There's a time
to be serious and there's a time to go ballistic. We're your soundtrack for
the latter.

Panzer Magazine's The Music Vault Program Reveals its First Band 24.07.01

 Panzer-Magazine.com's The Music Vault Program, a quality and talented bands
seeking project, has revealed at last the name of its first band - SE7ENTY
SE7EN.

After scoring a 5 out of 5 two times in a row on Panzer-Magazine.com, there were
little doubts that SE7ENTY SE7EN would be chosen to open the Music Vault Program
on the biggest Heavy Metal Magazine Online.

Born in the year 2000, SE7ENTY SE7EN pays little attention to trends and thrusts
the heaviest and grooviest rock you soul can bare. The band's first demo,
"Tempting the Devil", astonished the rock world, and received
excellent reviews and considerable airplay in radios around the Globe. Some were
speechless, others banged their head to what they defined an "incredible
groove". call it what you want, but this band has definitely summoned your
most feared demons.

 Possessed by an impressive demonic attitude and by the vicious fever of the
almighty extreme rock, SE7ENTY SE7EN deliver a smacking dose of hard driven
riffs backed by a thunderous and tight rhythm section, which will certainly make
alive your deepest fears. Lit by the incredible feeling of singer M. Xisto,
whose rendition has caused quite a stir in the media, this time bomb is ready to
explode. Actually, many people in the industry consider the band to be the
perfect fusion between heaviness and melody, something that could only be
achieved by the large experience of these musicians, who have already recorded
albums for high profile acts in their home country metal scene. In fact, the
band has been considered by respected journalists as the next big thing to come
out of Portugal.

Far from resting on the double maximum rating on Panzer-Magazine.com, the band
was considered as a special artist on Clix.pt (one of Portugal's most visited
internet portal), a special screamer on Scream-Magazine.no, and scored a 9 out
of 10 review on the Canadian magazine Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles, and a 3,5
out of 5 review on the north American Electricbasement.com, to name just a few
achievements. Having successfully tempted the Devil, it was a natural step for
the band to enter the studio and record a new demo, "New Sensation".

The band is currently putting up its own domain in the Internet at
www.se7entyse7en.com, and
the video for the anthem "Zero" is being made as you read this.

Panzer-Magazine.com will keep track of all the band's movements and steps,
keeping you updated with all the details until the process of delivering the
band to a record label is finished, so watch out for the new sensation.

        As for my management I run it for INTERVALLE BIZZARE
(unrelenting brutal fast technical twisted grindy death metal
from Praha). We are fond of playing anywhere - we prefer
exchanges.
                                That's all for now, best regards
Abro.

The band rose as grind-noise-rock project of two brothers (on
guitar and drums) in January 1997. In April Tomá¹ Stulík and
Ládis Eifler joined the band. First named person have enriched
the music with his pseudoanimal growling and second with good
bass links played on bestial Jolana instrument. In this line-up
band performed on a few gigs. In October 1997 came a new drummer
and the present one started to play the guitar. A few shows
followed with a little different material in intense of fast
melodic death metal. In September 1998 is the last performance
with old line-up. Both guitarists left the band and Tomá¹ Fiala
came into. The music began to be partial to brutal death metal.
In December the band started again with gigs and in February 1999
they visited studio for the first time, where their 3 songs promo
tape was recorded. This material has been encountered with great-
unexpected reception. The band played many gigs with LIVIDITY,
PESSIMIST, DAMNABLE, LKOST SOULS, DESECRATION, INHUMATE, GODLESS
TRUTH, FLESHLESS, or cult Pragues festival Fekal Party and many
other shows with allied bands from Czech and Slovakia. We were
touring Europe with Californian SEPSISM and Slovak SANATORIUM in
March 00. That was very successful tour. We were going on small
Euro tour with American SKINLESS and Czech PERVERSIST in
September 00 to become more known. We will visit countries like
Germany, Holland, Belgium again. We planned to do a small
exchange with Latvian death metal act BRUTE CHANT in October /
November 00 but our guitarist Tom was injured, thus our friends
IMPERIAL FOETICIDE played these shows instead of us. The band
began to slowly rehearse in spring 01. The second guitarist
Franta ©erák from GARBAGE DISPOSAL joined us in these times, thus
INTERVALLE BIZZARE started to practice very hard to learn the
newcomer the old stuff which was little bit rearranged. We booked
our first shows after more than half a year break on May 01.
There should be out very soon 1-year old stuff as the split CD
with MALIGNANCY on Shindy productions. We also should appear on
prestigious comp CD named Czech Assault (on Relapse records) with
FLESHLESS, IMPERIAL FOETICIDE, CONTRASTIC and NEGLIGENT
COLLATERAL COLLAPSE. Bands ask for possible exchanges of shows.
Our conditions are only food, place for sleep and money for
travelling. Send your promo materials and we will send ours.

Concert Review

UFO @ DONINGTON
From: "Mother Mary" <sadoldbat@hotmail.com>
 Newsgroups: alt.rock-n-roll.ufo
 Subject: Donington

It rawkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkked.
Great weekend, great company, great music.
Brain a bit pickled, so bear with me, I could really do with
a nice cup of rocknroll tea but as usual, you lot take
priority, so.....here's a quick round-up. More in-depth
stuff later, ok.

Uli was just damn well astounding, held the crowd all the
way with his classical and his rock, spanning the genres
on that beautiful guitar........then.....on come our
boyyyyyyyyyyysssssssssss, Phil lookin fit and
gorgeous and amazingly like his picture on the mousemat....
Pete looking like Pete, only with shorter hair and
healthy, with red satin legs (a la mousemat) and a red and
white spotted shirt, and Michael in baggy shorts and
vest lookin much more in shape than he did a few months back....
and slap bang wallop they went into Midnight Train, which was
great, and then Let It Roll, which for me was the best one of
the set - it rocked and it rolled and everyone seemed really
happy...and then Rawk Buddum which again was a credit
to the fact that these fellas have SURVIVED. Then Michael and
Uli went into In Search of Peace of Mind...and then we had a
set from Uli and Jack Bruce which proved that Cream was about
much more than just Eric Claptout. Then they
announced that our lads were coming back on to do some
more.........but.......they couldn't find them.

Hmmmm.

So Uli improvised and again was magnificent....and then on
they come again after a bit of a delay and went into Lights
Out.....here was where the main balls-up came when Michael
seemed to lose his way with this one, but Uli
picked it up and kept it on track. And then came Doctor
Doctor with the crowd singing along, just like the old days,
and then they were gonna do a Hendrix jam but Donington
operates a 11.30pm curfew so there was only 2
minutes left - so Uli treated us to an amazing finish, which
lasted far longer than two minutes, accompanied by a sky that
was showered with fireworks, and Carl had to come onstage to
wake Uli out of his musical trance, (trying not to break the
spell) so that he finished before a literal
lights out.

The professionalism of Uli, the band, Barry Sparks, Don Airey,
Clive Bunker and all the crew made it a great set. In the
crowd there was a fair bit of anti-Schenker heckling before
our lads came on, but (and Dave Wood will confirm
this) I turned around to one great hairy crowd of Hell's
Angels and shouted to them to give him a chance (Supreme Power
and Rulers don't take no greebo shite) - anyway, by the end of
Let It Roll they were cheerin and clappin along with the rest.
The evening proved that there IS life after Manchester.
OK, it wasn't the 'glory days' but they were a TEAM again.
They looked happy and they did the business.

Uli said to Dave this morning (see the smooth way I just
threw that bit in)that when he looked out at the biker crowd
it felt very bizarre, the way they were all accepting and
enjoying the classical parts of his set. Uli
also told Dave that a large part of his set was improvised.
We could see this from the interaction between Uli, Don,
Clive and Barry - like a kind of tantric telepathy between
them. Spoonful, with Jack Bruce, apparently went
into some kind of overdrive when Jack forgot to stop
singing, so Uli and the others carried on building the music
around him - magical. I nearly forgot to tell ya, we heard
some of the new MSG cd earlier in the
evening, and that Chris Logan fella aint bad at all.
Oh yeh, and they also said they were recording last night's
set for a new live album.

So, general consensus on the night was that we had a great
team effort where they righted the wrongs of Manchester.
Great to see them all alive and up there. You wanted them
and you got them. And you got them enriched
by a fantastic line-up of other musicians. What you didn't
get was Me in the Wet T-Shirt competition but you can't have
everything.
