Destroy All Monsters

Geisha This

Artwork by Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw.

Destroy All Monsters started out as an anti-rock band: four midwestern art students - Jim Shaw, Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, and Niagara - with a mission to subvert the airwaves. Between 1975 and 1979, they produced six issues of DAM Magazine, a barrage of Kelley's perverse cartoons, Shaw and Loren's wild Xeroxed collages, and shots of the band; Niagara did a lot of the cover designs, and everything was crudely printed on cheap paper. "The images that drove us were the strange combinations of film noir, monster movies, psychedelia, thrift-shop values, and the relentless anarchy of an over-stimulated pop culture", recalls Cary Loren. This compilation is the definitive DAM document: hundreds of drawings, photos, Xeroxed artwork, reviews, profiles, and personal manifestos - plus a flexi-record bound into the book.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art in America

Ross Simonini

The new facsmile reprint of the six published 'zines (plus a seventh "lost" issue) has the grainy tacility of a few hundred gutter-punk flyers bound together. Pinup girls, ex-presidents, repurposed advertisements, cut-up band pictures, scrawled text.
