John Holmstrom
PUNK #16  1978
Magazine, 21 x 29cm
Punk Magazine

Condition: Good, light wear

Punk is a fanzine founded in 1975 by cartoonist John Holmstrom, publisher Ged Dunn and journalist Legs McNeil. It is the first publication to have popularized the CBGB music scene and, above all, its use of the term “punk rock”, coined by collaborators of Creem magazine a few years earlier, led to the generalization of the expression in world level to qualify all new groups producing music inspired by the Stooges, New York Dolls, MC5 and Ramones.

Written entirely in hand lettered interior texts, Issue 16 of 1979 features an illustration by John Holmstrom on the cover -  Disco sucks! With the Boom Town Rats - Interview with Bob Geldoff; Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen interview (Sex Pistols). 

One of the emblematic magazines of this period with an extraordinary layout.

In 1976, New York was home to a booming counter-culture – and one magazine, Punk, was there to chronicle it all.
