STRAIGHT & ALERT started around 2010 as a mailorder and label run by myself, and will keep going that way as long as I can. However, the idea to team up with people from all over the world to start an online zine has flourished over the years and became real around early 2017.

Since then we are always looking for new blood to contribute with reading content. The idea behind this webzine is to give an overview of the current (and past) worldwide Hardcore Punk scene. We also want to give the opportunity to people who don’t have time to start their own zine or just feel like writing about Hardcore Punk once in a while, a way to publish their work and get it read by the largest possible audience.

Either interviews, reviews, articles, art, videos, opinion columns or whichever kind of material, we will consider everything that is sent to us, as long as it is closely or remotely involved with Hardcore / Punk music in the broad sense. We are not close minded and always open to any ideas and suggestions.

We can’t guarantee every submission will be published but you can be 100% sure it will be read and we will get back to you.

If you feel like getting involved and contributing, send us your submissions or questions by email at
