White Flag, Negative Approach, Violent Apathy, Hellmouth, and Easy Action Appearing on Tesco Vee's Book Tour

.
Tesco Vee is hitting the road on a book tour where he'll hit 13 venues in 9 states in support of the new 576-page collection of early hardcore history, Touch And Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Fanzine '79-'83, by Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson, edited by Steve Miller.

Joining the noise, filth, and fury at various stops will be an all-star array including White Flag, Negative Approach, Violent Apathy, Hellmouth, and Easy Action.

Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson launched Touch and Go fanzine in Lansing, MI, in 1979, and set out to chronicle, lambaste, ridicule, and heap praise on the new punk happenings. In laughably minuscule press runs by today's standards, the zine was made by guys within the Midwest scene strictly for the edification of scenesters and pals in other cities like DC, Philly, Boston, LA, SF, and Chicago.

Inspired by Slash and Search and Destroy and writers like Claude Bessy and Chris Desjardines, TV and DS pumped out twenty-two naughty, irreverent issues, spawned a legendary independent record label, and brought fame and fortune to the best bands in the land, including Black Flag, Minor Threat, the Misfits, Negative Approach, the Fix, the Avengers, the Necros, Discharge, Die Kreuzen, Poison Idea-any punks worth their weight in glorious black and white.
