Bruce Kalberg's No Mag brought a darker, art-damaged perspective to early Los Angeles punk publications. Even though, only 14 issues were published, No Mag was as provocative as the other early LA heavyweight punk publications like Slash and Flipside. This issue highlights a raw sensibility to the Los Angeles punk scene by featuring interviews along with local underground punk artists, as well as musicians. Near Fine in Wraps. Bright, sharp and clean overall, some edge fading. Stapled black and white with red logo pictorial wraps on newsprint. 40 pps. 14-1/4x11 in. Item #9032
