"Skank or Die" 1984 article from Playboy

I posted an illustration from this June 1984 Playboy article on punk last week, promising to scan the full article in soon. Here it is! There's some good info and quotes in here along with the writer's commentary. Click on the images to get the bigger readable version of each page. I'd love to hear your opinions on it...

I wonder and read that, nice to see. But it is not easy to understand.

Awesome! Thanks for posting this, I was eager to read it. This actually was a decent article--I like how the author describes the punk scene with broad strokes (the fun, the art, the idiocy, the politics, the cliques) across a few cities.

The reference to Mr. Jack Klugman's Quincy was the funniest bit of the article. Years ago, I heard audio clips from that episode and they were quite amusing.


P.S.I would have loved to have been at the D.C. show to see Scream and Void.
