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 #8 Fall/Winter ’81/’82 is packed, including cover story and interview with Japanese band the Plastics. More interviews with dancer/musician Veronique Vincent, Siouxsie and the Banshees, filmmakers Jim Jarmusch and Christopher Parker, Richard Butler of the Psychedelic Furs, and musician Arthur Omjeje Doyle. Features on “The Invisible Empire” - about the KKK’s presence in southern California - as well as the Berlin Wall, and the film “The Forty Year Old Boy.” Lastly, a photo essay of the Mayan Lacandones and “His Trust Violated” by erotic author Terence Sellers. Condition is very good, despite slight yellowing on lower edge, previous fold, and small tears to spine and bottom of back cover. which have been subtley repaired with archival tape.
