John Wilcock started Other Scenes in early 1967, after co-founding The Village Voice in 1955, editing The East Village Other (EVO) from 1965, and helping launch the Underground Press Syndicate in 1966. He left The East Village Other in protest at Walter Bowart running a negative review of Warhol's 'Chelsea Girls', and took his 'Other Scenes' column with him, a title that emerged as a full-scale underground newspaper in March 1968 when it achieved (short-lived) national distribution. It appeared irregularly, reflecting Wilcock's peripatetic lifestyle (he was also a travel writer), and featured erratic, confusing and frequently misleading numbering, with the same article occasionally appearing twice in successive issues. He produced 74 issues of Other Scenes between 1967 and 1976, though publication became less frequent after 1971, partly due to the newsstand competition from overtly sex-oriented papers such as Pleasure and Screw (Wilcock was unwilling to drape his covers with nudity in order to maintain circulation figures). By then he had co-founded Interview with Andy Warhol, and published "The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol", the result of his audiotaped interviews with Warhol's closest associates.
