If This Goes On 1-3 [Complete]
Bethesda, MD: If This Goes On, 1982. 8 1/2 x 11", xeroxed in b/w and stab-stapled. All issues published of this early DC area punk and music fanzine, co-edited by the artist Sharon Cheslow - who was a founding member of DC's first all-female punk band, Chalk Circle, which was deeply influential of the Riot Grrrrl movement, and has had a long subsequent career as an artist working with sound and other mediums - and Colin Sears, of Bloody Mannequin Orchestra. If This Goes On was distinguished for its intelligent and wide-ranging articles and reviews - some of the most informed and intelligent album reviews of any fanzine of the era, including of more obscure independent music from abroad - and striking mix of imagery - the back cover even appropriates a photograph from William Klein's Life is Good and Good for You in New York. The first issue contains interviews with Hate from Ignorance, show reviews including Iron Cross at Janelle's, DC scene news, and numerous intelligent and indepth reviews, which would be a feature of every issue, including more obscure European acts. The second issue prints interiews with Double-O, Neighbor's Children and Iron Cross. The foreward to the third issue warns that this might be the last due to lack of funds, and so it was, but it is a great issue, printing interviews with Minor Threat, Lucky Pierre, Second G, Denmarks' Sort Sol, and the Raincoats. All issues of the zine are scarce, and rare as a complete run. Slight and dissipating smell of mustiness, ownership signature of a fellow fanzine editor written neatly in red ink to the cover of each issue. Very good.
