Victor Gastelum did the cover art for this issue, and no, that is not Damian Franko on the cover. Pedro Bob helped out with the layout on this one. Ian MacKaye came to Pedro (with help from the Rise and Fall) and did a question and answer gig at Sunken City Skates. We took two of the stories that he told that night for this issue. One story is a detailed account of the Teen Idles’ sketchy trip to California, the other is about when FEAR played on Saturday Night Live and Lorne Michaels asked Ian to bring “real punks” to the taping. Both are great stories.

Number 14 has a bit of a uniqueness going for it that we can’t give away just yet. Oh fuck it – the entire issue is hand drawn, OK? That means there were no photos used by us, at least. Artist Michael Sieben did the cover, how cool is that! 14 starts off with a piece Halbadal calls “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants,” in which he interrogates the four main San Pedro Skatepark Association accomplices about past, present and future skate gibberish, mostly about the Channel Street Skatepark.
