"Primary Information is pleased to announce the release of Destroy All Monsters Magazine a compilation of the magazine that was originally published between 1976-1979. The publication contains all six published issues as well as a seventh lost issue and is 278 pages. Destroy All Monsters was a Detroit-area band and collective that was formed in 1973. Its initial members were Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw. Destroy All Monsters were art students and musicians who used performance art tactics to create noise music that evolved out of influences like Sun Ra, Nico, horror movie soundtracks, and local bands like MC5 and The Stooges. The band later took on new members and briefly reunited in the 90s.\r\nDestroy All Monsters Magazine was edited by Cary Loren and contained artwork, photographs, and flyers from Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw. Printed using any papers and techniques available to the band, the issues combine the cut and paste tactics of punk zines with a psychedelic affinity for color. Destroy All Monsters Magazine functions as a kind of manifesto, providing insight into the band through densely layered pages with movie imagery, kitsch, cartoons, delicate drawings, and counter-culture collages. While Destroy All Monsters has been the subject of recent exhibitions and partial reprints, this is the first time that all issues have been reprinted." -Primary Information.
