Search & Destroy #1-6: The Complete Reprint : the Authoritative Guide to Punk Culture
Search & Destroy, a zine self-published from 1977-1979 by V. Vale, was a thorough anthropological survey of an emerging social-change movement: the San Francisco punk scene. The original periodical was a major catalyst in the explosion of clubs and bands that dominated the San Francisco underground, and documented every punk show, band, and ethic to spring out of the Bay Area.
Now, the entire set of Search & Destroy tabloids is available in two volumes. These complete reprints (at 90% size), include all interviews, street reports, articles, ads, illustrations and photographs, capturing the rage, riots and revelations of an extraordinary period. Innovators such as Devo, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and the Ramones are featured alongside writers and filmmakers such as William Burroughs, J.G. Ballard, John Waters, and David Lynch. This is the real thing, written when punk was first inventing itself. In 2 Volumes, both with complete indexes.
