Scam #9: Damaged: The Story of Black Flag's First Album
Erick Lyle's ninth of issue of Scam is a documentary history of the making of Damaged, Black Flag's first album, and a bridgehead in punk's attack on mainstream America. What makes it compelling (aside from Erick's sharp writing and wit) it its exploration of nostalgia, commodification, subculture, and dissent.
"Here at last is the long awaited new issue of SCAM, the story of the making of my favorite record ever, Black Flag’s classic first LP, Damaged. Based on an expanded version of a story I wrote for the LA Weekly last winter to celebrate the record’s 30th anniversary, the zine includes primary interviews with Black Flag members, Henry Rollins, Greg Ginn, Chuck Dukowski, Dez Cadena, Kira Roessler and others around the band, including Mike Watt, Joe Carducci, Raymond Pettibon, Ed Colver, and Dave Markey."
