Woodyates Rd, Lee [London]: Sideburns, 1977. First Edition. Six A4 sheets offset printed on both recto and verso, and stapled once at the upper left hand corner. Very good with minor toning and wear, and a couple of small droplet stains to upper left hand corner. (Item ID: 22808)

Debut issue of this early British punk fanzine, containing the first appearance of editor Tony Moon's iconic drawing of three guitar chords (A, E, and G) accompanied by the legendary exortation: "This is a chord, this is another, this is a third. Now form a band." Later popularized in SNIFFIN' GLUE (often erroneously credited as being the first appearance) and innumerable other other book and fanzine reprints, this is its rare first publication ó one we've been attempting to locate for almost ten years, and the first we've seen offered for sale in that time. In addition to the "Playin In The Band" graphic, this issue also features an interview with The Stranglers, reviews of 45s and live shows, and the obligatory "Editorial Crap": "Yet another so called 'Fanzine gets off the ground. Slow but sure. Maybe it wont be around next month or whatever, but that's what it's all about [...] I canít type, but Iím having a go so why donít you [sic all]." A truly scarce document of the London punk scene, and the diagram that launched a thousand bands.
