KELLEY, Mike. Destroy All Monsters: Geisha This.

(Oak Park, MI): Book Beat Gallery, 1995.  First edition.  Quarto.  A compilation of the first six issues of Destroy All Monsters magazines published between 1975 and 1979.  Issued to coincide with the Destroy All Monsters exhibition held at the Book Beat Gallery, April 22 – May 30, 1995.  The magazine were edited by Cary Loren and contained artwork, photographs, and flyers from band mates Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw. Printed using any papers and techniques available to the band, the issues combine the cut and paste tactics of punk zines with a psychedelic affinity for color. Destroy All Monsters Magazine functions as a kind of manifesto, providing insight into the band through densely layered pages with movie imagery, kitsch, cartoons, delicate drawings, and counter-culture collages.  A near fine copy in wrappers, includes a never before released flexi-recording of DAM from 1975
