Number 5. Hollywood, C. Loren January 1979, Printed and mimeographed on various colour stock, with numerous illustrations, 28x21,5 cm., 44 unnumbered pages, spine stapled.
Very rare. There were six zines, released between 1976 and 1979, and also a lost seventh issue that never saw publication. The Destroy All Monsters zines comprise a vibrant array of collage, writing, photography and other miscellanea by Mike Kelley, Cary Loren Loren, Niagara and Jim Shaw. Formed in 1973, the Detroit band Destroy All Monsters was a wild and reckless synthesis of psychedelia, proto-punk, heavy metal, noise and performance art.
Number 5 has a small collage to one page, and a screenprint on transparent paper.... "This issue we celebrate the Hollywood era of Heir Erich von Stroeim; the decade on 1919-1929, magical Chinese and Japanese Nouveau and Ozish transformations. Also included is the rare edition of Antonin Artaud's fabulous treatise "The First Manifesto on the Theater of Cruelty", first published in "Collections Metamorphoses" No. IV,1938. Includes some stamp art.
