"4to.; black-and-white and color illustrations on newsprint; printed wrappers; printed ecru dust jacket. First edition; 500 copies, the entire edition. This publication reproduces 100 British punk fanzines culled from the Mott Collection and features two essays “Glue Was All Over My Fingers” by Toby Mott and “We Are the Writing on the Wall” by Victor Brand. The zine is mass-produced grafitti, a love letter to an anonymous public, a black-and-white shout into the wilderness. As a product, it goes hand-in-hand so perfectly with the autochthonous priorities of the punk movement that it seems in retrospect almost inevitable. The youth of the United Kingdom—under- and unemployed, adrift and disillusioned in the aftermath of ‘60s utopianism—were the writing on the wall in the mid-1970s. The kids of punk werent all right: Punk was the return of the repressed. Even if they were only talking to themselves, they could express themselves without censorship through music and grainy, handwritten pamphlets." - PPP Editions.
