London’s Outrage punk fanzine
My object of the week comes from Jon Savage’s article ‘Fanzines: the purest explosion of British punk‘, which showcases objects that will be on display in the British Library show, Punk 1976-1978. Savage’s descriptions of ‘handwritten articles, stark montages and jagged juxtapositions of image and text’ are highly suggestive of the relationship between the production of assemblage and individuals’ creative responses to contemporary musical, artistic, and literary culture – as appropriate to the construction of punk fanzines as they were to Ellen Warter’s documentation of the Brontes in the late nineteenth century.
