Nick Latzoni


Edition : First / Clifton NJ / Lower Third Enterprises / ca 1976 / Softcover. / VG+
2 volumes, Folio, 20pp each. Printed wraps. Numerous Colour and Black & White plates. Both issues folded once.

Joey Ramone cover alert! Latzoni’s ‘all the young dudes’ is a true mystery, with only 2 issues reputedly published, though the cover stares no.6, and there is another issue with vol.2 no.1 on the cover. Rumour has it that Latzoni made up the numbers to make the magazine look larger than it was, though this is unsubstantiated. Either way, a brilliant, and scarce publication. There’s no text, just gig photographs of the Ramones, Blondie, New York Dolls, Cherry Vanilla, Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Cramps, Television and the like, all seem to be unpublished elsewhere making it a somewhat raw diary of early punk rock in the U.S.
