PRIMARY INFORMATION

Destroy All Monsters Magazine 1976-1979

Text by Cary Loren, Mike Kelley, Niagara, Jim Shaw.

Formed in 1973, the Detroit band Destroy All Monsters was a wild and reckless synthesis of psychedelia, proto-punk, heavy metal, noise and performance art. The collective hailed from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and consisted of Cary Loren, Mike Kelley, Niagara and Jim Shaw (with later members including Ron Asheton of the Stooges and Michael Davis of the MC5). Later emerging as extremely distinctive individual artists, collectively the group forged new terrain in art, music, performance, theater and video. Destroy All Monsters released very little recorded music until Thurston Moore issued a three-CD compilation in 1994, but they published six issues of a now legendary and much sought-after zine, also titled Destroy All Monsters. This publication collects those six zines, released between 1976 and 1979, and also includes parts of a lost seventh issue that never saw publication. The Destroy All Monsters zines comprise a vibrant array of collage, writing, photography and other miscellanea by Kelley, Loren, Niagara and Shaw, and together provide insight into the collective's kaleidoscopic vision of the dystopian values of their time.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times

Holland Cotter

The book that they and their old colleagues have assembled from youthful material feels just right for the Occupy Wall Street moment, or almost right. The Destoy All Monsters spirit was dystopian, not utopian. Making change was on the agenda; making nice was not.
