Issue 1, May 2000, first edition of “a few hundred.” Staple-bound self-wraps, [40] pp., illus. Very good with light cover and corner wear, and a pinhole in the upper left corner of the zine. The premier issue of Retard Riot, a punk (at least at its conception) and art zine that’s seen over 40 issues. Lyon (1979 –) is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. He works in drawing, painting, artist's books, sound art, and installation, and his work is in the permanent collections of the Tate Britain, the Museum of Modern Art, The Menil Collection, and The Whitney Museum of American Art. For the first issue, Lyon “wrote pretty much everything, this goes for the pictures and drawings as well,” and includes poetry, lifted news articles (a punk zine staple), Non Phixion (the NY hardcore hip-hop group), a super short interview with Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, a review of John Waters’ “Pink Flamingos,” the Andre the Giant sticker campaign, record reviews, cartoons, and stuff. Lots of stuff. A great zine with a title you don’t want to say out loud. Early issues are scarce. First Edition.
