Punk and New Music Fanzines – Late 1970s to Early 1980s

I do not own copies of most of the fanzines depicted on this page. Some of the images I have posted are from reproductions with highly pixilated resolution.  This required some pretty serious photoshopping on my part to make the images presentable.  As a consequence, I cannot claim that the colors of the images are accurate.  I also may also be erroneous about the editorial information I provide.

If you have better images of any of the fanzines depicted, please share them through my E-mail link.  If I am in error about any of my information, please provide me with the correct facts.

Here are the fanzines in alphabetical order:

15 thoughts on “Punk and New Music Fanzines – Late 1970s to Early 1980s”

  1. The two issues of CHAINSAW pictured in the second row on the left are not the UK fanzine. They were from the U.S. (Pennsylvania, I think) and edited by George Smith (a.k.a. Dick Destiny). Yours truly Eddie Flowers contributed a piece on the Angry Samoans to the issue with the grim reaper on the front cover.

  2. If you like fanzines, then you may be interested in this.

  3. I have been looking for old issues of this zine…especially with Starz and REX. Please post others if you have them. Thanks.

  4. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like
    this one these days.

    Allied Propoganda was written by Ray Chudley and Mick Ashman, from Northolt on the outskirts of West London. I think they probably produced about 9 fanzines over the course of 5 or 6 years – too lazy to be prolific!! Late 70’s to early 80’s were just a brilliant era for music in London – you could see brilliant bands for a couple of quid. Great time to be young!!

  6. Great stuff……. I am young again!!

    My dad always told me stories of his fanzine that he used to print but I didn’t ever know the name until now. “Rotten to the Core” haha and my dad is none other than Dave Chaos himself. Thank you for this piece of family history.

    Rox magazine came out of the Akron area, as did Slam.

  9. Some friends and I had a fanzine in Elmira, NY during 1982 called The Bone Hunter
    It was a small venture that lasted for six issues. We didn’t charge any money for it, and it was paid for via advertising for local clubs and bands. We also let all the local n]bands list their shows for free. Had a blast doing it. We were able to interview Cheetah Chrome, The Ramones, the B-52s, Dave Edmunds, the Clash, Black Flag, Stiv Bators with Lords of the New Church, and Jean Bauvior (Plasmatics). We’re currently getting started putting together a 25th Anniversary Commemorative issue for 2017.
    We’re planning on interviewing Richie Stotts (Plasmatics), Marky Ramone, Ross the Boss (the Dictators), Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult) and others.
