Corner staple-bound self-wraps, 21.5 by 27.9 cm, [10] pp. incld. wraps, illus. Good with light corner wear, minor creases, and a pinkish smudge on the left edge of the front cover. The second issue of Issue, which seemed to primarily be a show review zine. Reviews include Wall of Voodoo at the K.U. Ballroom (“THRILLING!”), Circle Jerks at the VFW (“The Circle Jerks put hair on my chest and everyone’s sweat in my eyes. The dance floor was filled with war babies and I caught a glimpse of the anti-christ thrashing to the beat”), Psychedelic Furs at Stevens Auditorium (“boring as shit”), and the Thrash Bash at the Road Apple. There is a short write-up on William S. Burroughs at the VFW on 9 April 1983, reading from Place of Dead Roads (he has an intense and erratic style that captivated the audience), along with the industrial group Whitehouse (“destruction personified”). The gem is a review of a chaotic Minor Threat show at the VFW (“MT’s music sounded like awareness pushed to the brink of fury. Ian was monstrous with astounding stage presence and powerful voice”), and a page-and-a-half interview with Minor Threat’s members about their tour, weird things that have happened at shows, and Straight Edge. Good stuff.
