Scam #9- Damaged: The Story of Black Flag's classic first album told by Erick Lyle!
I mean, that's about it. It's a nice thick zine telling the story of not only the Damaged album but also a history of LA punk scene at the time. Erick Lyle has a history of telling radical history and this is a really great exploration of punk history. Erick wrote a story for the L.A. Weekly about the 30th anniversary of Damaged and was excited to ask Black Flag all the questions that had been in the back of his head from the first time heard the album. The editor suggested that he was too close to the material. Bad for the L.A. Weekly, good for us because we get this awesome zine!
Up the History punx!
