SOLD OUT/DO NOT ORDER: About Vile (Magazine)


SORRY, SOLD OUT! DO NOT ORDER! 1983. 108pp, perfectbound, 8.5×11″. VILE magazine (a parody of FILE magazine by A.A. Bronson) is an early Mail Art publication featuring Bay Area DADA disruptionists like Bill Gaglione. Irene Dogmatic (Punk band SST), plus Ray Johnson, Dick Higgins, and others. Chock-full of crazy collages, photos, artworks, letters, essays, drawings and fake ads for non-existent products, this is one of the unknown underground’s essential canonic publications, bursting at the seams with lasting humor and absurdity a la Alfred Jarry.   About VILE with anonymous cover photo of a man’s face with agricultural fork through it.  Gives a history of VILE Magazine, a summary of Anna Banana’s events in San Francisco, and of Futurist Sound, her and Gaglione’s 1978 European Tour.   Editor/publisher: Anna Banana. Edition of 1000 copies.
