All Rivethead stickers proudly produced and provided by MCL Screenworks, El Cerrito, CA.  This is former December's Child bassist Sammy Salazar Chong's company; they do excellent screening.  Also check out his current band "Closet Lames" who have some pretty nifty tunes. https://www.reverbnation.com/closetlames

Rivethead Issue # 27, February 1991.  Even though it wrongly says March, it is really the February issue.  Trust us on this, we were there, we made the error.  Actually it was probably the typesetter's fault.  At any rate, this issue was edited and published by Lisa E. Sullivan.  Hero & Dragon cover art by Sandi Parnell.  In this issue, Lisa E. interviews Bret Hartman, who at that time was A&R Manager for MCA Records, Wendy Jasper sits down with the lovely and talented Cherry St. (only band on the scene back then who had bigger hair than Wendy herself), there was Reader's Page, Davey's Corner, Soundboard, Guitar Tips, Local Lix, and more!!  Keep it rolling!

Happy Valentines to all!
