Continuing on with the history of Hardcore, Punk, Metalcore and Grindcore. This is Vista Fanzine.



Originally a cut & paste fanzine. Vista fanzine began in the mid 90's {1995 to be exact} to be a vehicle to bring exposure to bands that I love the most. In a time era when tape, scissors & the local photo copier center was the rule of the day. My hope is that now bringing Vista Fanzine to the internet, all these interviews will be accessible to anyone & everyone. I must admit that I would without a doubt prefer an actual, "hand-held" fanzine. I'm from the time era when it was an absolute thrill to go to a hardcore show & have some random kid outside or inside a show selling his {or her} zine. It was great to read interviews & read about political and/or personal views on the world we live in. So, with a heavy heart {insert an emotional *sigh* here}...I now have become computerized. I hope you enjoy these interviews as much as I have enjoyed doing them. Vista Fanzine continues on and I am still right here doing one of the things in life that I love the most - interviewing bands that I feel deserve attention and a voice in interview form. There is a ton of hardcore/punk history here and with current bands still keeping our music scene alive & well, it is clear that so much more history is to come. And here it will remain, until our end of days. Hugs & Kisses...

  1. INNER DAM rules! I remember you guys from the mid to late '90s. Listening to the songs you posted here, and they sound great even on the cusp of 2014!! Love your blog--this coming from an unabashedly Roman Catholic revert with Eastern Orthodox Christian & Buddhist leanings!! Seriously though, we're all different, so what. I'm 42 & have been going to hardcorepunk shows since 1985. Ain't nuthin' gonna change now!! See you in the pit! Cheers, www.mass//retaliation.blogspot.com
