Records in 1999). In its brief run, Slash defined the punk subculture in Los Angeles and beyond with the comic strip Jimbo by Gary Panter and photographs by Melanie Nissen, the founding publisher and longtime photo editor.

Writing by Jeffrey Lee Pierce, Chris D., Pleasant Gehman and Claude Kickboy Face Bessy explored reggae, blues and rockabilly in addition to punk and new wave. Slash diagnosed the nascent punk scenes challenge to the music industry and established its own oppositional voice in the editorial of its very first issue, staking a position against disco, Elvis and concept albums, and declaring: Enough is enough, partner! About time we squeezed the pus out and sent the filthy rich old farts of rocknroll to retirement homes in Florida where they belong. Slash: A History of the Legendary LA Punk Magazine 1977-1980 pays homage to the magazines legacy with facsimile reproductions of every cover from the publications run and reprints of some of the magazines best articles and interviews.

These are interspersed with new essays, reportage and oral histories from John Doe, Exene Cervenka, KK Barrett, Pat Smear, Thom Andersen, Gary Panter, Vivien Goldman, Richard Meltzer, Cali DeWitt, Nancy Sekizawa, Bryan Ray Turcotte, Claude Bessy, Ann Summa and Allan MacDowell, among others, telling the story of this critical chapter in the history of American media.
