In the fall of 1975 my friend Eddie McNeil and two older friends from our town, John Holmstrom and Ged Dunn, rented a place in NYC and created Punk magazine.
They lived and worked in an old store front at 356 10th Avenue at 30th Street in NYC known as The Punk Dump.
They had released the first issue of the magazine in January.
I visited in July 1976 just after the release of issue No. 5, “The Dull Issue” and took some pictures.

If you find this interesting you should really check out John Holmstrom’s book THE BEST OF PUNK MAGAZINE  and of course read about it in PLEASE KILL ME: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk or wait til Legs writes his version.
