Olympia: Lost Music Network, 1979-1984.

Complete run in 26 issues covering the letters of the alphabet, with six issues of follow-up OPtion included. Stapled wraps, some in newspaper format. Very Good condition overall. Subscription card cut out of back cover of first issue. Toning, slight chipping, and brittleness to first 14 issues. A few small stains to covers. Stamps, postmarks and name/address on back covers. A few stray pen marks (very infrequent). Red Tone Poets 7" laid into issue V. Light wrinkling to T issue. OP created "indie" as a musical label. It spanned the entirety of music not on major labels during a time of mainstream conformity and a largely unsung proliferation of sub rosa styles and genres. People associated with the fanzine went on to found K Records, Sub Pop, and a bunch of other labels; create grunge; and generally redefine the idea of American youth culture. These issues are still a great resource for finding overlooked music from the early '80s. Item #150425004
