Artist: 100 FANZINES/10 YEARS OF BRITISH PUNK 1976-1985
Title: 100 Fanzines/10 Years of British Punk 1976-1985
Format: Book
Label: PPP Editions
Country: USA
Price: $36.00
"4to.; black-and-white and color illustrations on newsprint; printed wrappers; printed ecru dust jacket. First edition; 500 copies, the entire edition. This publication reproduces 100 British punk fanzines culled from the Mott Collection and features two essays “Glue Was All Over My Fingers” by Toby Mott and “We Are the Writing on the Wall” by Victor Brand. The zine is mass-produced grafitti, a love letter to an anonymous public, a black-and-white shout into the wilderness. As a product, it goes hand-in-hand so perfectly with the autochthonous priorities of the punk movement that it seems in retrospect almost inevitable. The youth of the United Kingdom—under- and unemployed, adrift and disillusioned in the aftermath of ‘60s utopianism—were the writing on the wall in the mid-1970s. The kids of punk werent all right: Punk was the return of the repressed. Even if they were only talking to themselves, they could express themselves without censorship through music and grainy, handwritten pamphlets." - PPP Editions.

Artist: CRASS
Title: Crass 1977-1984
Format: Book
Label: PPP Editions
Country: USA
Price: $36.00
"Large folio; 73 black-and-white and color illustrations on newsprint; 
housed in publishers printed mylar ziplock envelope. First edition; 1000 copies, the entire edition.

 Crass embodied the anarcho-punk aesthetic of the late 70s: they privileged politics over musicianship, substance over form, and above all independence over profitability. The group lived together in an open community and used much of the proceeds from their music to support other political causes and organizations and to promote other small punk bands, such as Poison Girls, Conflict, and Flux of Pink Indians, through their independent record label. The group was also remarkable for its multimedia approach, incorporating films, zines and books of essays and poetry—all with the distinct, coherent visual imprimatur of artist Gee Vaucher—into their activities.

Crass played four concerts in New York in the summer of 1977, at small, unexpected venues such as The Puerto Rican Club and the Polish Club. This exhibition represents the first opportunity since that brief visit for New Yorkers to experience the unique visual and aural mayhem that is Crass trademark. The material featured in this exhibition spans the high period of Crass endeavors, from 1978 to 1984, and constitutes a special segment of The Mott Collection. In addition to his own artistic activities as part of the Grey Organization, collector and curator Toby Mott spent much of his youth diligently collecting and preserving the artifacts of the punk movement in Britain. Major portions of his collection were featured in the exhibition “Loud Flash: British Punk on Paper” at MUSAC in Léon, Spain, in March 2010 and more recently at Haunch of Venison Gallery last fall in London." - PPP Editions.
