Substantial run of one the most respected fanzines in the UK.. Published in Glasgow by Tony Drayton, Ripped & Torn included interviews with, or features on, most of the important bands of the period, but also devoted material to art, including a feature on Derek Jarman. Illustrated throughout with original photographs, and combined with its anarchic cut-and-paste aesthetic, it became one of the best printed records of the times, along with the equally important Sniffin' Glue. A total of 18 issues were produced, with the final issue edited by Vermilion Sands, a female biker, musician (fronting for the band Dick Envy), and writer for the American fanzine Search & Destroy. Tony D. left R&T and began publisging "Kill your own puppy", a similar fanzine.
