Readers of my website will be very interested in a brand new feature on Mark Vallen's Art-For-A-Change website. The feature is entitled "Slash - The Monthly Manifesto of Angry Refusal." Mark was kind enough to post some of the fabulous Slash covers along with Kickboy's wonderfully inspiring editorials. Thank you, Mark.
For those of you who are not familiar with Mark Vallen's work, he is a tremendously talented artist in his own right and a tireless advocate for social justice and change. In many ways, his work embodies the underlying spirit of the early punk scene, which was an attempt to dismantle the status quo and create a new and better world.
Anyone looking for the real spirit of the early L.A. punk scene could do no better than to read Claude Bessy's writing. He gave eloquent voice to what many of us were feeling and trying to express in our music, fashion and lifestyle. Anything I could say would only pale in comparison to his own words, so please, check it out by clicking on the image below!
