Welcome friends to the 70th issue of Legends Magazine!
Im proud to be releasing this issue, stepping ever closer to the big
100th issue of Legends. I have no intentions of stopping before then and have
plenty of things to offer you in the future.
Features in this issue include the long-awaited
interviews with Dancing Ferret Concerts and the bands SunShine Blind and The
New Creatures. The three groups (Patrick Rodgers, Caroline Blind and Mark Walsh
are representing them in respective order) have agreed to an exclusive
interview with me following the horrendous actions of Andrew Not
Goth Eldritch at the now-infamous Dark Harvest III festival in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this past June 28 th . Im very happy to bring
you this exclusive interview, most of which was performed electronically, to
answer many questions surrounding this event. I hope my reporting will shed
some light on what occurred there. Ive aptly named the interview A
Too Gothic Interview.
Also in this issue is the closing chapter of The
Institute. Once again, might I remind those that already know, and notify
those that are new to the magazine, that contrary to popular beliefI did not

Carmodys Conclusion will shock you!
Also, Derek McDonald returns with his
higly-acclaimed series, The Polishing of Metal. Im proud to
bring you Part 5, Maturity. I also wanted to take a moment to let
you all know that there is an even more-updated version of the entire series

Im writing this while I can still feel my body
stiffening up from the onslaught of Vans Warped Tour 97. Me and
some good people managed to make it out there this past Saturday (July 26 th )
and had one hell of a good time. If youre into punk/ska, I would like to
suggest you check out an up and coming band that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Theyre called Less Than Jake. They threw out a kick-ass set
for us skankers in the pit, and my hat and adoration goes off in their
direction. So swing by and check out their website at http://www.afn.org/~ltj/.
If you like ska, even a little, and are looking to find a band that take the
music genre back to its roots, you owe it to yourself to check out Less
Welp, thats all I have to say at least until the back
page kiddies. So read on and enjoy this issue.
