About this Item

Single staple at upper left corner. 11 ¾ by 8 3/8 inches. 14 leaves, printed primarily on versos only, with the first and last leaves printed on the rectos as well. Black and white photos throughout. A single issue of this influential punk fanzine, featuring interviews and articles on The Jam, the Buzzcocks, commentary on various New York bands, including the Heartbreakers, Cherry Vanilla and Wayne County (with a photo of Wayne County dressed as Patti Smith). Also present are lyrics to White Riot by the Clash, with some black and white photos and short commentary. A Sex Pistols pin-up makes up the last leaf. With photography by Harry T. Murlowski. Founded by Mark Perry, this zine ran for a total of 14 issues and 'identified itself as for punks and a mouthpiece for their music and anger.' (Triggs p. 50). Sniffin' Glue incorporated and instigated the DIY style associated with the punk movement and fanzines, influencing many future fanzines, while using traditional press reporting techniques undercut with subversive humor. Jon Savage notes 'Perry [ ] committed his magazine to a populist, accessible aesthetic, with unforeseen results,' with Perry commenting, 'If I say this in the Glue, it's going to happen.' (Savage, England's Dreaming). VERY GOOD condition. Minor creasing and wrinkling at the corners. Light browning, mostly along the extremities. (Triggs, p. 50-51; Berniere and Primois p. 223-224; Savage p. 202). Bookseller Inventory # 008285
