FEATURED: Geisha This: Destroy All Monsters

Destroy All Monsters: Geisha This
Softcover, $75.00

"Destroy All Monsters started out as an anti-rock band: four midwestern art students -Jim Shaw, Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, and Niagara - with a mission to subvert the airwaves. Between 1975 and 1979, they produced six issues of DAM Magazine, a barrage of Kelley's perverse cartoons, Shaw and Loren's wild Xeroxed collages, and shots of the band; Niagara did a lot of the cover designs, and everything was crudely printed on cheap paper. "The images that drove us were the strange combinations of film noir, monster movies, psychedelia, thrift-shop values, and the relentless anarchy of an over-stimulated pop culture", recalls Cary Loren. This compilation is the definitive DAM document: hundreds of drawings, photos, Xeroxed artwork, reviews, profiles, and personal manifestos - plus a flexi-record bound into the book."
