Jon Savage on Early ’60s Pop ‘Zines (from 2009)

“Dozens of magazines sprang up in the early 60s to cover the growth of pop music. Jon Savage celebrates their fervour – and their immense historical value.”(The Guardian, 2009)

“These magazines created an all-inclusive, almost hermetically sealed environment of Super Pop. Things were changing so fast that they were put together without much reflection or much heed of the morrow. Reading them today, they are both time-locked and immediate: they are historical documents yet retain the fervour of the moment.”
