About this Item

no date. Illustrated wraps, side stapled. Cover art by Charles Burns. 16 pages including covers. 4 by 2 5/8 inches. Gray cassette in black case, with handwritten 1 and 2 on each side of the tape, written inside small circular stickers. A single issue of this music fanzine, dedicated to underground, indie music. This endeavor would eventually lead to the establishment of the Sub Pop record label that signed acts such as Nirvana, Mudhoney and others related to the Grunge music genre, becoming a huge influence in rock music. Bruce Pavitt established Subterranean (Sub) Pop while a student at Evergreen College in Olympia. Issue five of the Sub Pop fanzine, issued in cassette tape form, with the fanzine consisting of the insert included with the tape. This marked the first time that the zine was issued in cassette form, which Pavitt would continue to do, alternating between cassette and fanzine format. The cassette features music from Visible Targets, Beakers, Doug Kahn, Cool Rays, Pell Mell, Jungle Nausea, Oil Tasters, Church of the Subgenius, etc. About VERY GOOD condition. Minor browning and faint staining to the rear cover of the zine insert. Light curling and wrinkling at the corners. Several small notations in pencil in the interior, apparently marking the minutes of the tape. Some scuffing to the clear cover of the cassette tape case, with a small area of hardened, faint residue near the upper front corner. Small crack to the lower left corner of the clear case. (Triggs p 111-115.). Bookseller Inventory # 007275
