Peelander-Z, by their own admission, are from a different fucking world. Half the staff of RVAMAG was at this show, and were promptly taken on an intergalactic punk-rock journey across the stars.

Peelander-Z, by their own admission, are from a different fucking world. Half the staff of RVAMAG was at this show, and were promptly taken on an intergalactic punk-rock journey across the stars. Special thanks to TRIGGERSYSTEM for booking and promoting.

We were lucky enough to have RVAMAG’s own Alyssa interview Peelander-Z. They are yet another band who are not from this world to play RVA. They seem much more benevolent than Richmond transplants GWAR, who are also not from this blue planet.

Red is seen here in what looks like a crowdsurfing attempt, however he actually had anti-grav space boots. He merely prefers humans as a walking platform to general hovering.

Noise, Cosplay, and Body Horror: The Rise Of ROTWL

Strumming in the Underground: Richmond’s House Show Scene

Sun-kissed Australian Punks: The Music of Skegss

I was decidedly nervous to interview Ben Reed, the lead singer and guitar player of the Australian band Skegss. Not only had I become over the last few weeks an enormous fan of their music, but I had never spoken one on one with a member of a band that had achieved...
