was founded in Los Angeles, in 1987 by David F. Castagno, Publisher/Editor.  The publication’s concept was to the local L.A. music scene with the respect they deserved.  Giving unsigned bands a professional quality publication in which to be featured was Castagno’s primary goal.   The magazine was met with instant praise and success and soon became “the” source for L.A.’s scene and it wasn’t long before the biggest bands in the genre were featured interviews.  In 1992 took the quantum leap from being a local Southern publication to becoming a national magazine, further expanding its reach and influence.  However, with the explosion of grunge and sales beginning to wane, published its final print issue in March of 1994.

With the rebirth of popularity and technology, lives on for a whole new generation of fans.  now features interviews, reviews and news on bands from today and yesterday.
