SAMIOF, Steven and Melanie NISSEN. Slash.

(Los Angeles, CA): Slash, 1977. First edition. Tabloid fanzine. Unpaginated. Volume one, number two. Cool issue of this cult magazine that was the underground voice of the Los Angeles Punk Scene 1977-1980. Slash set trends not only in music, but also in street fashion and visual art. It offered tirades against the corrupt music industry and its stars along with endless rants in favour of turning the status quo upside down. This issue features local news, an interview with the Weirdo’s, and The Screamers, an article on Deaf School, and some illustrations of Vivienne Westwood and Malcom McLaren clothing.  A good copy, worn and torn at spine, with cover image of John Denney (The Weirdos).
