“A collection of frenetic flyers produced for the American punk scene between 1977 and 1985. Many were created by the musicians themselves and demonstrate the emphasis within the movement on individuality and the manic urge of its members to create things anew.” Included are two versions of the limited editions of 49 copies each. The first is a complete unbound first edition (Corte Madera, CA/Los Angeles: Gingko Press Inc. with Kill Your Idols, Inc., 1999) with the uncut sewn textblock, the front and rear illustrated boards, and printed cloth spine covering, housed in a wood box with silkscreened lid graphics, numbered in pencil 40/49. The first edition set was not issued with endpapers. The second set is a complete 15th anniversary “Black Edition” which includes additional flyers and art (Berkeley/Los Angeles: Gingko Press in association with Kill Your Idols, 6th hardcover edition, 2015) with the cut sewn textblock, front and read illustrated boards connected to the printed cloth spine covering, and the front and rear endpapers featuring the “Never Give Up” collage by Winston Smith, housed in a wood box with silkscreened lid graphics, numbered in pencil 18/49. The boxes measure 27.3 by 32.8 by 6.6 cm. The contents of both boxes are fine; the boxes themselves are near fine with only faint signs of shelf wear. Also included is a copy of Fucked Up + The Reader. Los Angeles: Kill Your Idols. 2015, first edition, numbered on the title page 24/100. Wraps, 12.7 by 17.7 cm, 176 pp., illus. Very good with minor wear at the corners. “While most attention has been paid to the phenomenal archive of images in Fucked Up + Photocopied, the essays contained offer an incredible snapshot of the birth of the movement and its lasting legacy. The Reader collects all of these insightful pieces together with those contained in its follow up book, Punk is Dead, Punk is Everything in one tome. Writers include Brendan Mullen, Jello Biafra, Pushead, Mike Watt, Lorna Doom, Tony Alva, and many more alongside interviews with punk pioneers Ian Mackaye and Malcolm McLaren.” Fucked Up + features a spectacular collection of graphic art by way of punk and hardcover flyers. Most punk flyers were Xeroxed by band members or promoters (their friends), and printed in small numbers, especially in smaller towns. So, while this volume includes some oft-reproduced flyers like Winston Smith’s art for the Dead Kennedys and Raymond Pettibon’s work for Black Flag, many of the flyers went unseen until this seminal book was published. The flyers are arranged topically and geographically with sections on San Francisco, skate rock, “stolen” art, The Weirdos, X, Slash Magazine, the Germs, Black Flag, the Valley, The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, Los Angeles, Misfits, Texas, the Midwest, Necros, Boston, New York, Punk magazine, Sonic Youth, CBGB’s, DC, D.O.A., and just about every punk and hardcore band that played in America during this time period. Interspersed with the amazing graphics are short essays by Artist Winston Smith, Lars Fredrickson of Rancid, Dez Cadena of Black Flag, Jello Biafra, artist Pushead, Brian Brannon of Jody Foster’s Army, and many more. Illustrated in full color.
