Karl Siebengartner demonstrates the function of fanzines within a local space, while also shedding light on the inner-workings of a particular punk milieu. By using Munich and its punk fanzines as a case study, the chapter challenges assumptions as to the development and influence of German punk. Methodologically, Siebengartner argues, fanzines offer a crucial resource for constructing a view from within this metropolitan subculture.
