80s Hardcore

Punk History! SLASH Magazine Archive Online NOW!

One of the best times of my life was when my mom packed up all of our shit and we drove from Houston, TX back to Venice, CA. I’m pretty sure the year was around 81/82, and we moved into the Windward Motel. We actually stay in one room with a hot plate and no TV, and shared the bathroom with other people on our floor. This place was full of all kinds of weirdos, which was fine with me, because this was during the time when I was finding Punk Rock. Debbie Dub from Slash Magazine lived in our building, and one day she decided to give me every issue of the magazine she had. I was 13 and really into the SoCal hardcore scene, so I did not respect the pieces of Punk Rock she shared with me, and to this very day I regret not treating those magazines the way they deserved to be treated. Which brings me to this point – Punk Rock archivist Ryan Richardson has upload all 29 issues for the public to download for free or by donation. The L.A. underground scene owes a lot to Slash Magazine, because they believed in weirdos when no one else would…I respect all of the creative spirit that went into creating this magazine way more now!
