SANDS, Vermillion. Ripped & Torn.

(London): Insult Design, 1979. First edition. Quarto. The final issue of this fanzine, created by Tony D, one of the first to emerge from the UK punk scene. In a legendary moment in fanzine folklore, after 17 issues Tony D handed over editorship to Vermillion Sands (of Vermillion and the Aces, Illegal Records and the San Francisco fanzine Search & Destroy) ‘outside a pub in Portobello Road’ . Vermillion (who was also some sort of Ballardian hells angel) produced a post-punk postscript Ripped & Torn, published by Miles Copeland’s Insult Design company. Includes contributuion from Genesis P. Orridge and Mark Perry of Sniffin’ Glue. A near fine copy in stapled wrappers.
