I’ve recently been bidding in a couple of auctions online for old back issues of SLASH, and I’ve lost every time because I’m not willing to pay $40+ for a magazine. My loss, I’m sure, because unless someone comps all of those magazines into a book, the way Search & Destroy did over 20 years ago, I (sniff) may never get to read the whole set. #firstworldproblems
Here’s another SoCal punk mag you and I might never get to stain our hands with, courtesy of Ryan Richardson’s Fanzine Faves. It features the luminous DeDe Troit on the cover, plus a bunch of other heroes, circa 1981 – just pre-hardcore, just post-Masque/Hong Kong/“Decline”.
