Summary

Touch and Go fanzine was the brainchild of Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson and was launched in Lansing, Michigan in 1979. Major fanatics of the new punk happenings in the late ¿70s, TV and DS set out to chronicle, lambaste, ridicule, and heap praise on all they arbitrarily loved or hated in the music communities in the US and abroad. Inspired by magazines such as Slash and Search and Destroy and writers like Claude Bessey and Chris DesJardines, TV and DS pumped out seventeen issues together with TV doing the last five solo. In laughably miniscule press runs by today¿s standards, T&G 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, Chicago, et al. Magazines like Forced Exposure and Your Flesh among others were soon inspired by T&G to fire up the Xerox machine themselves, and the rest is history. So is the legendary independent record label launched from this 'zine, and so are the bands covered inside: Black Flag, Minor Threat, the Misfits, Negative Approach, the Fix, the Avengers, the Necros, Discharge, Iron Cross, Youth Brigade, Faith, Die Kreuzen, Crucifix, Poison Idea, and all the other punks worth print.
