Carol, Judy, George. The Kins Saga.

(No place): No printing details, no date. (c.1979).  First edition.  Small squarish 16mo.  Stapled wrappers, 12 leaves recto printing only.  Obscure artists book produced by Judy Gittelsohn, Carol Detweiler and George Waterman kookie players in the San Francisco punk and new wave scene.  Gittelsohn and Detweiler formed a number of bands including the Inflatable Boy Clams, Pink Section, and The Longshoreme, Trouser Press describes them as a “cryptic poetry damage vocal trio.” Their recordings are characterized by being mostly vocal “beat poetry chantings” that are uninhibited and whimsical.
  This quirky little volume sees Gittelsohn and Detweiler, photographed by Waterman, acting out the Kins Saga.  A very good copy, artists name to rear cover almost faded.  Scarce OLCL locates two copies, at MOMA and Boise State University.
