This issue contains write-ups on various indie, punk and other records and bands, including the East Coast, Cleveland, Chicago, San Francisco, Texas, Seattle, etc. This publication would lead to the establishment of the Sub Pop record label that signed Nirvana, Mudhoney and others related to the Grunge music genre, becoming a huge influence in rock music.
