Lit Bombast: The Best of Punk Magazine

Exciting news! (Not for real punks as much as punk-history-nerds like myself, but whatever.) The legendary Punk Magazine is coming out with a “Best Of” book at the end of this year. Punk Magazine was founded in 1975 (you heard me) in New York and published a handful of super-influential issues until they went under in ’79.

The “Best Of” catalog will feature high-quality reprints of early material (HELLO, punk photo comics!) rare and unreleased interviews/art/writing, and a few new contributions from editor-in-chief / legit cartoon artist John Holmstrom, not to mention titans like Lou Reed, Debbie Harry, Lester Bangs, Lenny Kaye (who called into my radio show one time!) and Andy Warhol. Pre-order that shit RIGHT HERE and make room on the coffee table.

It comes out on December 18th. Merry Christmas / Happy Birthday to me, eh?
