Back in 2005, I talked to Starkweather guitarist Todd Forkin about his band’s then new album for issue #16. It was one of my first freelance pieces for the magazine after leaving the friendly confines of 1032 Arch. At the time, Croatoan was the band’s third LP and first since 1995’s Into the Wire. While the Philadelphians have dropped another LP and split in the intervening years, April saw the re-release of their first two records via Translation Loss. So 113 issues later, it’s fitting in some way that vocalist Rennie Resmini closes out this little series after the break. To every one who has contributed to or read even one word of these playlists over the last three plus years — thank you.
