December 1977, Vol. 1 No. 1. Staple-bound wraps, glossy color cover, 20.5 by 27.5 cm, 66 pp. Good with light creases and scuffing to the covers, a 5 cm split at the tail of the spine, and heavy yellowing to the leaves. An example of mass media attempting to squeeze a few dollars out of the punk movement, Punk Rock was published by Myron Fass, “one of the most successful independent publishers in history.”5 Fass was best known for his horror pubs, but he would publish anything he thought would sell – softcore porn, guns, UFOs… punk. Punk Rock lasted for three issues (Vol. 1 No. 1, and Vol. 2 Nos. 1 and 2), and is quite scarce. The premier issue features articles about New York (“America’s new wave capital”), the Sex Pistols, The Dead Boys, Blondie, Deaf School, Boston’s DMZ, Devo, Television, and interviews with Patti Smith, Iggy Pop and The Stranglers. “Yes, indeed, each month we’ll be bringing you the nastiest pictures, the hottest features, and all the punk trash we can haul out before deadline time rears its ugly head.”
