Fucked Up + Photocopied 20th Anniversary Edition
(1000 items available)
A celebration of the 20th anniversary of this raw, brazen and totally intense title that collects frenetic flyers from the American punk scene between 1977 and 1985. Many were created by the musicians themselves, showing the punk scene’s emphasis on individuality and the manic urge of its members to create things new. Images were compiled out of whatever found material, photocopied and, still warm, stapled to the nearest pole to warn the world about next week’s gig.One glance and you can sense the fury of live performances by bands such as Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys and The Minutemen, and, through the subtext the reader is exposed to the psyche of a generation of musicians stripped bare: The Germs, J.F.A, NOFX, X, The Circle Jerks, Devo, The Exploited, The Screamers, The Cramps, The Dils, The Avengers and more.
