smlProtonsThe second 7 inch from Wollongong's finest musical export, the Proton Energy Pills was produced by none other than J.Mascis of Dinosaur Jr fame and is truly a work of art. 

 smlMindsnareArtyWith the release of a long overdue album from MINDSNARE, I figured it was time to open the archives and dust off six of my favourite photos of Mindsnare I've taken over the years.

smlMadballSydThe 1998 Australian tour of New York Hardcore legends Madball, was easily one of the most anticipated of the late 90s. 

smlNOFXCurrently in the country and whipping up one hell of a controversary are NOFX. But did you know that the year 1995, marked the very first NOFX tour of Australia?

smlProp97The April 1997 tour by Canadian band Propagandhi, was in fact the second visit by with the first occuring back in 1994, following the breakthrough success of their debut "How To Clean Everything". 

smlSNFU4March 1996 lay witness to the maiden voyage of SNFU (Society's No Fucking Use) from Canada to Australia. The band had recently reformed and were riding high on the newfound popularity of punk rock.

smlKardromahCafeIn this latest feature of Looking Back we investigate how the classic release of "Let There Be Rock" by Henry Rollins with the Hard Ons came to be.

smlH2OFebruary of 1997 saw the maiden visit by New York's H2O to Australia. In 1996, H2O had just released their debut "Self Titled" CD through Blackout Records.  

smlTaoRecently we ran a poll asking you to vote for your favourite Toe To Toe release over the years. It was unaminously decided that the 1997 album "Tao" was the winner. 

smlmindsnarediscogLater this month MINDSNARE will be celebrating their 20 Year Anniversary. We figured it was about time an official and comprehensive Mindsnare discography was put together.
