Slick early 80s black & white tabloid magazine - roughly 12" x 15" - with a bicoastal focus. Published out of San Francisco, with many writers based in NYC. Hence, most ads reflect the former, while much content reflects the latter. Focus on art, performance, and music. There is a strong presence of avant garde SF music makers in the Factrix/Residents/Sleepers trajectory, with some remnants of first wave punk, alongside rising stars of the NY No Wave movement, e.g. DNA, Mars, James Chance, etc. Even features articles written by members of those bands, such as Sumner Crane and Gordon Stevenson. Killer photos, which reproduce well in this format. 

Issue #5 has more in-depth interviews with Holly Woodlawn, Bush Tetras, musician John Lurie, painter Duncan Hanna, photographer Lisa Lyon, Gary Panter, Athletico Spizz 80, ex-lead singer of Pink Section Judy Gittelsohn’s new visual art career, and other mediums involving fashion and video. Condition is very good, despite some yellowing along outer edges.
