No. 7, 1978, first printing. Newsprint, tabloid format, 29 by 45 cm and folded, 24 pp., illus. Fine. Search & Destroy was simply in a class of its own. It seethed “a punk aesthetic with an intelligence, obnoxiousness and passion” found in few other sources. The writing was not only literate, but literary, and the design was graphically stunning with amazing photography. Of course, music was the heart of S&D and it “gives the fullest picture of what it was like to be in the punk underground at the very beginning.” This issue includes Devo, director John Waters, Dickenvy, Patti Smith, DNA, Cabaret Voltaire, Subway Sect, Roky Erickson, Dils, a Nuns cartoon, The Clash, Amos Poe, Zeros, Offs, etc. After Search & Destroy Vale went on to publish RE/Search, a truly alternative publishing house that exists to this day. $25.00 First Edition.
