SKID was an early-80s Milwaukee-based fanzine published by one Jon Hope, who later published a great music blog called Underneathica during the 00s. SKID was put together whilst he was a teenager, and this one, issue #5, even has a “thanks to Dad” in it, which is pretty great.

Jon’s taste at age 15 or 16 was quite stellar, ranging from hardcore to experimental post-punk to Flipper to some happy English new wave. He recently wrote liner notes to the AMA-DOTS reissue, having been a fiendish devotee of the band in their time. I’ll be posting a few other scans from Skid #5 as the week progresses.
