The Mission

Our mission is simple: to celebrate the universal language of culture, its creation, its mutation – no matter the medium, no matter how obscure, fringe, cringe or esoteric it may be. Rubber Axe is the home for the high art as well as the disgusting dreck. You decide for yourself.

What We Offer

  • Artist Spotlights: Discover talented musicians and bands from around the globe, from the past and from the present.
  • Interviews: Gain insight into the minds of musicians, producers, label owners, distributors and other creatives. Our in-depth interviews provide a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process and the stories behind the cultural landscape.
  • Reviews: Whether the new album or the obscure release from the years ago, the Rubber Axe covers it all. As much as the time allows, the unstoppable team of one offers thoughtful reviews of albums, movies, books and periodicals, helping you navigate the ever-evolving cultural vastness.

Our Team

Although ocassionally there was help now and there (mainly from the indispensable J. R. Preston of Tjolgtjar/Xexyz), Rubber Axe webzine is for the most part an individual effort of one individual, Rudolf Schütz.
