Vol. 1 No. 1, [July-August] 1982 through No. 10, December 1983. Staple-bound newsprint, 21 by 27 cm (give or take), not paginated, heavily illus. All near fine with yellowing to the newsprint. LP: San Francisco: Alternative Tentacle Records, . Two LPs in original sleeve with original plastic wrap and promo labels and “bonus zine.” Records and zine are fine in near fine sleeve. Maximumrocknroll (also referred to as Maximum Rocknroll, Maximum Rock’n’Roll, and MRR, depending on where you look in the zine) was originally a radio show started in 1979, but the print version was founded in 1982 after “issue 0” was an insert in the “Maximum Rock n Roll Presents Not So Quiet on the Western Front” record on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label. The double LP was packed with nearly 50 songs by as many bands and was hugely influential across the United States, probably spawning a thousand hardcore groups. Bands like MDC (Millions of Dead Cops), Flipper, Fang, Dead Kennedys, and 7 Seconds sold albums, and the MRR insert was a hit. Later that year, the “first official issue” was released and the bi-monthly mag has been in publication ever since. Starting as a heavily regional zine, MRR quickly evolved into a national and international publication, with show, record and zine reviews, interviews, and strong-willed op-eds—“a bold, well-developed social direction,” as one letter writer put it—a facet of MRR that put them on the map. Early issues are scarce, and a clean run of the first ten is almost unheard of. First Edition.
