UGLY THINGS N°35 (SPRING 2013)
[Punk Sixties - Garage Punk]
This special landmark 30th anniversary issue features cover stories on The Seeds, The Nazz and The Radiators From Space. Inside there are a bunch more stupendously cool and intriguing stories including Ty Wagner (“I’m A No Count”), The Sons of Fred, The Paragons (“Abba”), The Focal Point, Thunder & Roses, The Suzannes, and a profusely illustrated history of Ann Arbor, Michigan’s fabled teen club, the Fifth Dimension (The Who, the Yardbirds, the MC5, and the Stooges were among the many bands to have played there in the late ‘60s). Cyril Jordan’s ‘60s memoir continues with his rundown of the year 1965, while Greg Prevost takes a look at New York Dolls collectibles with a running commentary from Johnny Thunders himself. Also, a fascinating account of how the Hungarian secret police attempted to disrupt that country's rock scene in the '60s and '70s. And Mike Stax takes a look back over 30 years of publishing UGLY THINGS issue by issue. All this and our extensive review sections covering all the latest reissues, rock‘n’roll books and DVDs.
