Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '79-'83
Published by Bazillion Points
If ever you needed a collected volume of zines, this may be it. Rough and wild midwest punk rock reporting and tons of tons of record reviews, Touch and Go the zine was opinionated, irreverent, and balls-to-the-walls funny.

Touch and Go binds together all 22 issues and peppers it with essays a bit of commentary and notation. Bawdy and engaging, I can't take my eyes off it, but it's so jam-packed I have no doubt it'll take me a year or two to read everything. -EF
