Legendary Fanzine founded by Mark Perry in July 1976, Sniffin ‘Glue is one of the pioneers of Punk culture. In this book are reproduced the 10 issues of the fanzine with their cover. An essential book to understand punk culture and the London scene between 1976/1977. Sniffin’Glue which originally had a print run of 50 copies, was a huge success, so much so that its circulation climbed to 15,000 copies. We find there all the history of punk and rock’n’roll of those years: the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, Blue Oyster Cult, Eddie and the Hot Rods, The Damned, Iggy Pop, The Clash… “Sniffin’ Glue was started in July 1976 after I was inspired by The Ramones and Nick Kent. It has always been ME. Now it is someone else. I Reckon it tells the story of the New Wave. Not in dates and exact details, but in feeling. Mark P.”
