December, 2004:
I just saw a band play on the floor in between bands the other night at Gilman St. It had some guys from LOOK BACK AND LAUGH, Mike Thorn and - surprise surprise - Devon. Ho crap were they powerful! 3 guitars and Devon should give you some hint. They played less than 10 minutes and Devon ended up with a bloody lip, a cut-up hand, and 2 broken mics/cables. Good Stuff! He says they're called WAR ALL THE TIME. (UPDATE!! Just found a website for WAR ALL THE TIME )
In other Devon news, he and I's way-back-when band ALL YOU CAN EAT will be playing in January for Karoline (you know, Robert's wife, the lady responsible for Robert being in WHN?). It's her birthday and she and Robert are coming out to SF to celebrate. She'll be seeing her 98 and 99th AYCE show, poor lassie... January 21 at Gilman St with Challenger, Gift of Goats, Sharp Knife, and the Abi Yoyos and then January 24 at the Hemlock in SF.

My book is now available in Europe! If you're interested contact Steffan from the sweet-ass band Destroyér.

We are NOT playing ChiFest 2005. Truth be told, when I found out we were on the bill I did offer to play a WHN? solo acoustic set but I decided against it when I did the math - my health insurance wouldn't cover the damage that would inevitably befall my body if I tried that in front of a ChiFest audience.

The Who Cares? Files, September, 2004:
Robert is taking HERO DISHONEST (Finland) and Iron Lung around the States this month - this is a 100% WHN?-endorsed show. DO NOT MISS!
Max just moved to New York and seems to be adjusting to school life nicely, no doubt due to his schooling alongside the Olsen twins.
Devon is in France, la qia de la chance sac de mierde!
I (Craigums) am recording buttloads of bands in my new house so if you need a recording spot look me up! In fact, Harry Balzogna and the Teenie Weenies are in my house at this very minute recording an LP. My neighbors will be stoked...

General band update, March, 2004:
Max just got back from Japan where he spent his time studying Japanese and Japanese history, and playing drums for a Tokyo band. "7 shows and a recording, plus practicing 2x a week....a little too hectic for me," says Max. Like I said elsewhere, Max is the laziest man I know.
Devon is hosting Devcom1 this weekend. Non-geeks need not apply.
Robert and his band ARTIMUS PYLE will be touring in May.
Craig and his band LOVE SONGS will also be touring in May.
An interview from Germany was posted here.
Your face.

General band update, January, 2004:
Robert and Karoline are doing well (and warm) in Milwaukee in their new house (which costs less than any of our rent).
Max just moved to Japan for a little while to study - see for extended details.
Devon and Craig's side band - Colbom - just put out a record.
Craig just published a book - check it out.

Here is a link to the F.U.N. page Nick made. F.U.N., by the way, stands for Fuck Up Nick. Nick is the singer and is also known for being the LIFES HALT roadie. Felix (LIFES HALT) plays guitar, Max plays bass and I play drums.

This guy came up with pretty accurate guitar tabs. I even had to use some myself...

Maximum Rock and Roll's radio is HERE!

Se voces tem algum video do whn? ME AVISEM. Obrigado!
If you have any WHN? videos LEMME KNOW, thanks.
Si tu tienes videos de WHN? diga me! Gracias.

Added an FAQ page for the regular questions we get here.

With all the yeah-or-neigh hoopla regarding colored vinyl, all I gotta say is colored vinyl sounds like crap.
