Cover Story: Boys, Boys, Boys


Dust off your mixtapes and posters, as we journey back to those bands that once made your hearts throb: boy bands. From The Monkees’ unthreatening haircuts to The Backstreet Boys’ 2015 comeback tour (now with Kevin!), we take a look at the history of this maligned pop phenomenon, and where it stands now. 

Also in this issue:

Robert Downey Jnr discusses donning the Iron Man armour, again, for Avengers: Age of Ultron; Joel Meares tells us why we’re all going to die (especially him); and in ‘Roving Eye’ a photographer captures seldom-seen corners New York’s Ellis Island.

Starring in this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Steve from Adelaide. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Lynette C in Perth; Daniel K in Adelaide; Andrew W in Sydney; and Adrian in Sydney and Newcastle. We also have a great photo of comedian Denise Scott with her biggest fan, Jeff from Melbourne.
