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 #6 from Spring, 1981 is another packed volume featuring portraits of Paul Simenon and Mae Alexander, interviews with the Residents, writer Duncan Smith, Ikue Mori of DNA, Kathy Acker, photographer Jimmy de Sana, a bizarre one with James Chance and Anya Philips by Winston Tong of Tuxedo Moon, and an even weirder one with a Shiatsu practitioner by Jo Jo Planteen of the Inflatable Boy Clams. Add even more art by Minimal Man and Max Sentry and I’d say you have a pretty star-studded affair. Condition is very good, small half-inch tear on spine and small amount (less than 1/4”) chewed off lower right corner on front cover.
