PRIMARY INFORMATION

Tuli Kupferberg: Yeah

Published by Primary Information

Featured spread is reproduced from 'Tuli Kupferberg: Yeah.'This volume collects all ten issues of the classic 1960s zine Yeah, edited by Fugs pioneer and poet Tuli Kupferberg and his wife Sylvia Topp, as facsimile editions. Originally published by Kupferberg and Topp’s Birth Press between 1961 and1965, the magazine was, according to Kupferberg, “a satyric excursion; a sardonic review; a sarcastic epitome; a chronical of the last days,” and throughout its pages he acts as both editor and artist, threading the needle of leftist politics with the sharp wit for which he became known as one of the founders of the counterculture rock heroes The Fugs.
The magazine began under the shadow of the Cold War, with Kupferberg and fellow poets contributing poetry, drawings and collages that protested the social problems of the time: nuclear war, white supremacy, the Cold War and the Vietnam War, among others. Around issue seven, the magazine shifted toward an aesthetic that most closely resembles the cut-and-paste zine style of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
In these issues, Kupferberg collages articles, images and advertisements in book-length meditations that bite and snap at the American dream with the artist’s trademark sarcasm. The magazine ended with the infamous “Kill for Peace” issue, which lampooned American patriotism on the eve of America’s escalated involvement in Vietnam.
