Sniffin’ Glue

27 Sep

Recently I got a great present from a friend, an original copy of Don Letts’s documentary “Punk: Attitude’.

The DVD comes with a family tree and a copy of “Sniffin’ Glue”,  a monthly punk fanzine started by Mark Perry in July 1976 and released for about a year.

This zine “became the chronicle of the early days of British punk rock as well as pioneering the DIY punk ethic” as NME stated.

Mark Perry stopped publishing it to focus on his band, Alternative TV.

(By that time, the circulation was 15.000).

The band’s debut single was “Love Lies Limp”, a free flexi disc issued with the final edition of “Sniffin’ Glue fanzine.
