In the pages of ALARM 34, you will find scientists who moonlight as musicians and musicians who dabble in science; reports on the newest faces in the tour van as well as “lifers” with decades of music in their wake and no sign of slowing down; bands that sparkle in the limelight, and others that would prefer to remain unseen; instruments made out of boxes, rock tours that run on vegetable oil, and concerts enjoyed everywhere from the smallest of basements to the largest venues in the world.

“I’m just trying to get songs written. The songs themselves provide a certain amount of consistency in my life, and it seems important to keep writing these songs. I’m not exactly sure why, but I seem to be driven to do it. It doesn’t provide any kind of catharsis.”
