Volume 1, Number 5, August 1983. Tabloid format on newsprint, 29 by 40.5 cm then folded, 15 pp., illus. Light yellowing and a 6 cm tear on the fore-edge of the front cover. A fantastic street culture zine from Seattle, with articles on birth control and laws against wheatpasting, articles on or interviews with Black Flag, Def Leppard, 3 Teens Kill 4, Red Rockers, and local bands Shanghai Dog and Red Masque, as well as poetry, fiction, and letters. The most interesting aspect is their coverage of The Vancouver Five (also called the Squamish Five), a group of Canadian “urban guerillas” responsible for several direct actions that ranged from vandalism to a series of bombings of BC Hydro, Litton Industries (who produced guidance components for the American cruise missiles), and a chain of porn shops. This issue includes a full-page update on The Five, as well as ads for a benefit concert and a D.O.A. benefit single. First Edition.
