Black and white photos and art throughout, Edited and produced by Bruce Kalberg, this magazine chronicled the punk and underground music scene in and around the Los Angeles area, as well as documenting contemporary culture, fashion and art, with intent of 'invert[ing] all the clichés one might expect in reading a magazine.' (Interview with Kalberg by Rick Klotz, June 2010, quoted on the New Vulgate blog). To achieve this, black humor and a frank portrayal of sex is used throughout the magazines. This issue consists primarily of photographs of various punk musicians, including some of Black Flag, Belinda (Carlisle) of the Go-Go's and others. Featured are several photos depicting full frontal nudity of Brian Gregory of the Cramps, as well as one of Geza X. Photos of punk and avant-garde fashion are included. Sexual imagery and language throughout, sometimes a bit graphic. GOOD+ condition. Minor curling and creasing to the magazine along the edges. Minor wrinkling. General browning and minor soiling.
