The fanzine that became staple (and label) of the 1980s skatepunk underground. This issue with a primary focus on LA bands, but with features on regional scenes, including French punk. Aside from Social Distortion and Secret Hate, presented on the front cover, articles cover bands as varied as the Dream Syndicate, MDC (M.D.C.; Millions of Dead Cops), Anti, Crucifix, the Nikoteens, etc. In addition, an article reports on the murder of Peter Ivers of New Wave Theatre (Theater). With a generous amount of gossip filling interstitial spaces. Now housed in a removable, clear archival sleeve with an acid-free backing.
