I’ve heard about this magazine for years, I know Aaron Rose from always had some around back in the day, and he was definitely influenced by it. He wrote an article about TA for ANP Quarterly a few years back. I really don’t know the whole story about the history of this magazine, just that it started in 1981 and is still bein’ published to this day.
The vintage ones have that old school cut ‘n paste zine feel that’s hard to get nowadays, as witnessed in the more recent covers use of computer layout. The early covers have that janky printing quality that reminds me old underground comix, vintage reggae 45’s, or old firework labels.
I haven’t seen many mags that represent a subculture better than this one.
It’s live and uncut, made by those who are really livin’ it,
with a funk that is all D.I.Y.
Romance runs through it like an echoin’ oldies song.
It’s the magazine version of a tattooed teardrop.

“New Grenada is a planned community set in the desert where there is nothing for the kids to do, save for a rec center – which closes at 6 PM. The parents, in their zeal to attract industry to their town, have all but neglected their children. As a result, the kids begin to create their own entertainment, which involves vandalism, theft, and general hooliganism. During an incident when one of the kids brandishes an unloaded gun at town cop Ed Doberman, he is shot and killed. When the parents gather the next night to discuss the killing and the level of lawlessness among the youth, they soon find out that their kids have had all they can take.” – IMDB
“That movie pretty much defined my whole personality.
It was really cool.
– Kurt Cobain (Come As You Are, Michael Azzerrad)
Matt Dillon: “I only got one law: A kid who tells on another kid, is a dead kid.”
A totally amazin’ soundtrack that adds to it all
Claude: That stuff I took, it was supposed to be speed, but I think it was acid. I’m flashing.
