SCANS: AFI in February 2000 Issue of Superhero Mag, Contains Interview with Davey and Old Photos

High quality scans of old punk magazines featuring AFI are notoriously difficult to find. When Chad Lancaster (of Chad Lancaster Photography) was digging through his collection of old AFI records, he found a copy of Superhero magazine from February 2000 that featured a cover story on AFI. The story contains an excellent interview with some really great photos.

The interview inside is very in-depth and looks back from the earliest days of the band to the significant changes that took place between Shut Your Mouth and Black Sails, to reflecting on the first tour with Samhain. There's a discussion of lyrical meaning in songs such as The Prayer Position and Totalimmortal, which is at times evasive and at other times revealing. You also won't want to miss the attribution of action figures to each band member!

  1. This is fantastic Jason! Any chance I can get the rest of the content from the magazine? I'd love to read the Strife and Kid Dynamite articles.

  2. This is fantastic, thanks Chad and AFINewsHQ!

  3. I just wanted to thank you guys for bringing this stuff for all to see. What you do is really appreciated. This is the coolest thing, thanks!
