Punk. No.3. New York, 1976. 44pp. Ramones cover & article, David Johansen, Heartbreakers, Robert Crumb. Signed by the Ramones (Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy [& Mickey Lee, Joey's actual brother!], Talking Heads (Byrne, Frantz, Harrison & Weymouth [as 'Martina Weymouth'] & two of the Stranglers (Burnel & Greenfield 'Ever been to Liverpool? Fuck ole Americans'). The Ramones and Talking Heads signatures are on the Ramones centrefold and the Stranglers on the rear cover. The signatures were obtained at Eric's Club, Liverpool (May 19, 1977 for the Ramones & Talking Heads on their joint tour, and on another night for the Stranglers, probably their June date there rather than one of the two in May as those predate the Ramones/Talking Heads one). UK price sticker on front cover and Rough Trade distribution sticker on back cover. Centrefold has at some historic point, not recently, been removed from the staples, folded and then returned, presumably so it could be more easily carried around. Minor creasing and wear.                                                                                          £650.00
