Ripped & Torn was one of the first punk fanzines, and continued long after others like Sniffing Glue had stopped.
Tony Drayton started Ripped & Torn in Glasgow in November 1976 and carried on into the next wave of punk. It ran for eighteen issues, all of which are faithfully reproduced in this book.
By punks and for punks, Ripped & Torn is a fascinating document of the punk subculture and a sacred text of DIY culture.
