Abstract:

The Washington, D.C. Punk and Indie Fanzine Collection (DCPIFC) seeks to document the variety of publications that were created by fans of and participants in the punk and indie music scenes that have thrived in the Washington, D.C.-area since the late 1970s. The DCPIFC contains fanzines - publications produced by enthusiasts, generally in small runs - created by members of the D.C. punk and indie music communities, as well as fanzines from outside of D.C. that include coverage of D.C. punk and indie music. The collection includes primarily paper fanzines, but it also includes born digital fanzines and digitized files of some paper fanzine materials.

Historical Note

Beginning with musical groups like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and others, the punk music scene in Washington, D.C. rapidly grew to one of international prominence. Simultaneously, members of the larger international subculture began to create their own publications to document the music, ideas, and events that were developing. These self-published magazines, known as fanzines, became a primary conduit for information about this underground music culture. Although somewhat difficult to define, fanzines are publications that are generally produced in relatively small runs by enthusiasts.

When the Washington, D.C punk scene formed in the late 1970s, only a few fanzines, like Descenes, Vintage Violence, and Infiltrator, emerged to cover it. Although larger D.C. area music publications, like Unicorn Times, gave regular coverage to the nascent scene in Washington, it was the emergence of these new fanzines that particularly helped to promote new bands like Urban Verbs, The Razz, and The Slickee Boys.

Gaining local notice at the same time as those bands, but coming from a different, even harsher musical place, Bad Brains helped to spark the hardcore sound that became closely associated with the D.C. music scene. As Bad Brains played everywhere from basement shows to bars, the ferocity and passion that the band emanated made its mark on a young group of musicians that coalesced into the thriving hardcore scene. Those musicians quickly formed a group of new bands like Minor Threat, The Faith, and Government Issue, whose innovation and passion helped to establish the D.C. punk scene as a place worthy of international attention. Helping to document that scene at the time were D.C.-area fanzines like Thrillseeker, Capitol Crisis, If This Goes On, Brand New Age, and the photozine, Zone V.

As D.C.'s music scene grew, so did the fanzine community that documented it. By the mid-1980s, fanzines like WDC Period, Truly Needy, Dcene, Action Time, Disaster, No Scene, and the visually slick Greed were chronicling the area's musical evolution, which now included groups like Rites of Spring, Gray Matter, Fire Party, and Embrace. What had started as a local phenomenon had now turned into a music community that had made an international impact.

By the early 1990s, several D.C. fanzines had followed the lead of Greed and taken advantage of easier access to desktop publishing software to create cleaner, sleeker layouts. These fanzines, like Who Cares, Fake, Slanted, Whack, Uno Mas and others covered the new boom of D.C. bands in the late 80s and early 90s, led by groups like Fugazi, Jawbox, Velocity Girl, Tsunami, Unrest, Bratmobile, Shudder To Think, Slant 6, and The Nation of Ulysses. Running parallel to these publications, however, were fanzines that excelled at the cut and paste design approach, like the epochal Bikini Kill fanzine (created by members of the eponymous band), as well as other standouts like Sweet Portable You, Nerd Gerl, Teenage Gang Debs, Not Even, and Punk Life.

As the 1990s progressed, a new generation of bands like Trans Am, Frodus, The Most Secret Method, and The Dismemberment Plan made an impact, and another new crop of fanzines (Torpedo Dialogues, Held Like Sound, Restaurant Fuel) came along, although stalwarts like Sweet Portable You and Punk Life still published. By the early 2000s, however, DIY music coverage had primarily shifted to the internet. As a result, print music fanzines were not as common as before, but the tradition lived on into the 2010s with publications like Give Me Back and Strawberry Dreams, as well as a bounty of punk-inspired personal fanzines.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The D.C. Punk and Indie Fanzine Collection covers the period from 1977 to 2016; the bulk of the materials date from 1989 to 1998. The collection consists of fanzines that include coverage of music, politics, culture, and other subjects related to the Washington, D.C. area punk and indie music communities. The collection also includes correspondence and other materials related to the creation of fanzines. While the vast majority of the material originally existed in print, some born digital fanzines and digital files are also included.
