About this title


Cultural Writing. Essays. Interviews. Photographs. The INDUSTRIAL CULTURE HANDBOOK, edited by V. Vale, is a reference guide to the philosophy and interests of a flexible alliance of the following deviant international artists: Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, SPK, Z'er, Non, Monte Cazazza, Mark Pauline, Sordide Sentimental, Johanna Went, and R&N. Most of these artists have been working creatively a decade or longer, in varying degrees of obscurity. The impetus in common is rebellion.

About the Author:

When punk rock hit San Francisco (c.1977), Vale started publishing in angry reaction to mass media articles that reduced punk to spitting and safety pins. Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti each gave him $100, and through 1979 I published, edited and distributed 11 issues of Search & Destroy. Vale's editorial policy was one of empowerment: "Do It Yourself/ Anyone Can Do It"--the punk credo. In 1980 Vale started RE/Search with initial funding from Geoff Travis of Rough Trade Records and actress/film director Betty Thomas. At the same time, an old friend loaned him enough money to start a typesetting business. This enabled him to realize his dream: putting out slick, large format books with uncompromising, high-quality "underground" content. The '80s saw the release of RE/Search books on William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, J.G. Ballard, Incredibly Strange Films, Pranks,and his best-selling, trend-starting Modern Primitives. During the '80s typesetting was his day job, publishing his labor of love.
