New Wave. August, 1977. Perhaps the first and only issue of this fanzine, featuring articles on punk and new wave bands. Of note is an article by Lester Bangs on punk roots, taking a somewhat contemplative and philosophical look at punk and its trappings, arguing that perhaps punk was already dead. Another notable piece features Patti Smith discussing Robert Bresson. With articles on the Nuns, Richard, The Avengers, Crime, etc. Published by Edwin Craven (aka Edwin Heaven), the original manager for the San Francisco punk band the Nuns, this apparently short-lived fanzine presents well-written yet quirky interviews and essays on various punk and new wave acts. Tabloid newspaper format. 46 pages. Measures 11.5x15 inches.
