A tribute to Al Montfort, Snake, who has spent the last decade playing in some of Melbourne's most active underground bands - Straightjacket Nation, The UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver, East Link and Lower Plenty. From mutant glam punk to psychotic hardcore to damaged post punk to feral dole wave, Snake has made a huge impact on the sound and drive of contemporary Australian music.

In 2013, Douglas Lance Gibson interviewed Al and I about our playing in bands together for the past ten years, and shot some photographs of us. The bulk of this issue is this interview and photographs. Also in this issue is an interview by Tim Scott with Al Montfort and a complete to time of printing discography of his recording career, numbering a significant 66 releases.
