“We dedicate this issue to the average American in search of excitement. These images, distilled from the ambient culture, are the touchstones of a new sensibility, icons of the dissipations and strengths of the modern spirit. Let the way of life idealized in the pages by the To Lose lo Track of the punk scene bring into your home the romance of the underculture – horse racing, white-trash smut, greasy rock ‘n’ roll, muscles, motorcycles and the end of civilization.” Collaged images of Iggy Pop, Elvis, Willy Mink DeVille and others. A somewhat violent tribute to popular culture.
