Punk’s youthful energy is here captured by Nic Bullen, remembering how fanzines provided a key aspect of his punk epiphany. As a pre-teen school kid, fanzines opened up new horizons for Bullen, enabling contact with the networks that helped sustain punk’s evolving culture and fired the inquisitive minds of those attracted to punk’s angry aesthetic.
