I am maybe back on tumblr and this is what I’d like to share with you.
*Limited edition replica box set of all 22 issues of the legendary indie and hardcore punk zine plus CD and Book* “To celebrate the release of the book, Touch And Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine ’79-’83, by Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson, Presspop has made a limited edition replica box set of all 22 issues of the legendary indie and hardcore punk zine. Working with publisher Bazillion Points, they have meticulously duplicated the original printing, paper, and binding of the landmark fanzines, and packaged them together with the precursor “999 fanzine”, a book of historic Midwest punk flyers, and an exclusive “Process of Resurrection” CD compiled with the aid of author Tesco Vee and Touch and Go Records mainman Corey Rusk. The entire collection squeezes into a beautifully designed slipcase. Only 500 sets have been produced — get them while they last! Touch and Go fanzine was the brainchild of Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson and was launched in Lansing, Michigan, in 1979. Major fanatics of the new punk happenings in the late ’70s, TV and DS set out to chronicle, lambaste, ridicule, and heap praise on all they arbitrarily loved or hated in the music communities in the US and abroad. In laughably minuscule press runs by today’s standards, Touch and Go was made by guys within the Midwest scene strictly for the edification of scenesters and pals in other cities like DC, Philly, Boston, LA, SF, Chicago, et al. Inspired by magazines such as Slash and Search and Destroy and writers like Claude Bessy and Chris Desjardines, TV and DS pumped out seventeen naughty, irreverent issues together, and TV did another five solo. Magazines like Forced Exposure and Your Flesh, among others, soon fired up Xerox machines themselves, and the rest is part of Hardcore history. So is the legendary independent record label launched from this zine, and so are the bands covered inside: Black Flag, Minor Threat, the Misfits, Negative Approach, the Fix, the Avengers, the Necros, Discharge, Iron Cross, Youth Brigade, Faith, Die Kreuzen, Crucifix, Poison Idea—and all the other punks worth their weight in glorious black and white.1) touch and go hardcore punk zine vol.1~22 (22 copies) each size: 8.5” x 11” each pages: 16~32pgs 2) touch and go flyer book size: 8.5” x 11” pages: 45pgs 3) 999 fanzine (the genesis of touch and go) size: 8.5” x 11” pages: 4pgs 4) cd: “process of resurrection” (ppmcd-008) 1. bored youth / “shock value” (demo) 1981 2. volent apathy / “immortality” (first demo) 1981 3. the fix / “off to war” 1981 4. crucifucks / “legal genocide” 1982 5. l-seven / “clear vision” 1982 6. meatmen / “i’ve got a problem” 1982 7. necros / “conquest for death” 1983 8. negative approach / “tied down” 1983 (8 songs / total time:13:47) 5) deluxe box to hold all of above.”

“The unexpected effect of the punk scene was the sense of empowerment that comes from being part of a community that works together to achieve common goals, even if our goals as teens were mostly just to be creative and have fun. The punk spirit, the DIY attitude, the feeling that we can steer our lives and circumvent the powers that be lingers long after the pogoing has stopped.” - Alice Bag, 2012
