Ed. V. Vale. Tabloid newspaper format, folded, as issued. Each 12pp.-24pp. Illustrated throughout. All original printings, including both states of the first issue (the first state has red stamps to the front cover). Condition ranges from Very Good plus to Near Fine.

Vale, then working at City Lights, started work on Search & Destroy in January 1977 with the help of a few hundred dollars from Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. His intention was to provide a voice for the punk movement (a "total cultural revolt") and the new freedoms opened up in its wake. Its photography and in-depth interviews helped put San Francisco back on the map after the dormancy of its Beat and Hippie eras, and helped fuel a resurgent counterculture.

Interviewees include: Crime; The Avengers; The Ramones; The Clash; Devo; Tom Verlaine; Alternative TV; The Damned; Blondie; The Weirdos; Iggy Pop; Jordan; Patti Smith; The Dead Boys; Genesis P-Orridge; Metal Urbain; Helen Wheels; The Screamers; Nico; Suicide; Talking Heads; The Nuns; Negative Trend; Buzzcocks; Pere Ubu; The Mutants; The Sleepers; John Waters; DNA; Roky Erickson; The Zeros; The Dils; The Cramps; Siouxsie & The Banshees; Chrome; Patti Palladin; Syl Sylvain; Dead Kennedys; David Lynch; Steve Jones; Russ Meyer; William Burroughs; and JG Ballard.
