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.
