COSLOY YOUTH fanzine from Houston, TX, 1988. Ray Shea, one of the two movers behind this one, was a late 80s/early 90s DJ with me at KFJC. He was moderately embarrassed and blown away when I told him I had a copy of his fanzine.

The title refers, of course, to Conflict Magazine’s Gerard Cosloy, who also helmed Homestead Records at the time. Many, many ‘zines of the day emulated the man’s “cutting” prose stylings and encyclopedic knowledge of pretty much every band in the rocknroll underground.
