The Collected Fanzinesby Harmony Korine and Mark Gonzales
Synopses & Reviews
Some of these Collected Fanzines were done in collaboration with Mark Gonzales. Harmony and Mark would go back and forth, trying to make each other laugh. They’d stay up for days writing poems based on the names of famous people like “Mae West go east.” When there were enough sheets, they’d put them in some kind of order, a lot of time they would use the pages as pillows. It was a lot of fun, lots of laughs. We’ve tried to reproduce them in trade paperback form with the same production values — which is to say, not much. They also come in an ultra-deluxe limited-edition box-set containing replicas of the original fanzines, for those of you with your eyes on future auction profits. Fuckers.
Harmony’s house burned down around 2000 or something. At that point, the focus shifted. And he got lazy. But today, we’ve got this collection of seven fanzines from a time of innocence, exploration, experimentation, discovery, depression and hanging around.
Including these fanzines:
MY FRIEND OR SHEEP BOY
These eight limited-run fanzines were originally created between 1992 and 1999 and were sold out of the Alleged and Andrea Rosen galleries in New York City. Collected together for the first time, all of the original content is represented—low-concept, hilarious juxtapositions of words; scribbles and doodles; lists; monologues; free verse; jokes; innuendo; and both fake and real interviews. They blur the lines between fantasy and reality, and are often prankster in nature and laugh-out-loud funny. With weird musings, fake celebrity gossip, and hastily drawn art, this collection is a must have for fans of the authors and lovers of pop culture.
About the Author
Scraps of thoughts strung together—impressionistic jokes, story fragments, Hollywood apocrypha, and lists—offer unaltered evidence of the artist's creative process through his 20s.” —Village Voice
