New Stuff This Week


Pirate Nightmare Vice Explosion: Inherited Remnants of an Amateur Dadaist’s Library by Michael Kupperman (Four Corners Books) $40.00 – Comics artist Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle, Snake ‘n’ Bacon’s Cartoon) bought a stack of men’s magazines from the 1950s and 1960s where the previous owner did some weirdo modifications. Now he’s sharing it with you, FOUND Magazine-style. “They all had the owner’s name stamped on them,” Kupperman observed, “but the stamp is slightly illegible, so it’s impossible to know if the name is C. Buechtel, C. Brockel, C. Buschol or some other variant. This man–I’m assuming it was a man–spent years acquiring lurid men’s magazines and taking them apart, using the contents to form his own hybrid magazines with the pages from several reassembled inside the cover of one. With a grease pencil he’d cross out the headlines on the covers that didn’t apply anymore, and stamp his name on the results, along with a number. Why was he doing this? It’s not clear. It might have been a need to make the magazines seem like a serious collection, his re-editing emphasizing his sober interest in subjects such as modern fiction and wife-swapping.

Simon Barker: Punk’s Dead by Michael Bracewell et al. $45.00 – From 1976 to 1978, the young photographer Simon Barker was a member of the “Bromley Contingent”–a group of avid Sex Pistols fans who comprised the group’s inner circle at the height of the punk movement. Many of them, such as Jordan and Siouxsie Sioux, were notorious for their daredevil dress sense, and several–such as Sioux, Steven Severin, Adam Ant, Poly Styrene, Billy Idol, Viv Albertine and Ari Up–went on to form some of the most important bands of the era. This compilation of previously unseen photographs by Barker shows these founders of punk in their earliest incarnations–in bedrooms and kitchens, at public gigs and private parties–before media and commerce sunk their claws into punk’s iconoclastic look and class politics.
