In late 70s Glasgow, punk gigs were banned by Glasgow City Council following the national furore caused by the first popular punk groups like The Sex Pistols. Tony Drayton – aka Tony D – managed to create a fanzine documenting the international scene viewed through this prism and today, Ripped & Torn remains an essential resource for understanding and enjoying the initial explosion of this independent, ferocious and fun music.
Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace Press, in collaboration with Tony D, has compiled the entire 18 issue run of the zine in this beautiful book. Each hand-crafted page of Ripped And Torn has been faithfully reproduced, creating a concise compendium of an essential punk document.
