New Arrival: Destroy All Monsters!
Destroy All Monsters Magazine 1976 - 1979
Paperback, 2011, 270 pages
In stock: A slightly less opulent (no silk screened covers or flexi-disc) edition of Geisha This from a while back. Nice to have it back and available again, if briefly, for the masses.
"Facsimile edition of Destroy All Monsters Magazine including remnants of the "lost" seventh issue, which was never released. Destroy All Monsters Magazine features work by Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw.
Destroy All Monsters Magazine was edited by Cary Loren and contained artwork, photographs, and flyers from band mates Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw. Printed using any papers and techniques available to the band, the issues combine the cut and paste tactics of punk zines with a psychedelic affinity for color. Destroy All Monsters Magazine functions as a kind of manifesto, providing insight into the band through densely layered pages with movie imagery, kitsch, cartoons, delicate drawings, and counter-culture collages. While Destroy All Monsters has been the subject of recent exhibitions and partial reprints, this is the first time that all issues have been reprinted."
