Raw, brazen and totally intense, Fucked Up + Photocopied is a collection
of frenetic flyers produced for the American punk scene
between 1977 and 1985. Many were created by the musicians
themselves and demonstrate the emphasis within the punk
scene on individuality and the manic urge of its members to create
things new. Images were compiled out of whatever material
could be found, often photocopied and, still warm, stapled to the
nearest telephone pole to warn the world about next week's gig.
One glance and you can sense the fury of live performances
by bands such as Black Flag, The Dead Kennedys and The Minutemen,
and, through the subtext the reader is exposed to the
psyche of a generation of musicians stripped bare: The Germs,
J.F.A, NOFX, X, The Circle Jerks, Devo, The Exploited, The Screamers,
The Cramps, The Dils, The Avengers and more.
