'In Ripped, Torn and Cut, The Subcultures Network provides ample evidence that fanzines can and should be taken seriously. The book will be of significance to any historian working on British youth culture, but there is plenty to interest historians working on cultural theory, ageing, personal testimony, publishing and networks. It forms an important and welcome intervention into the history of British youth culture.' Sarah Kenny, University of Birmingham, Sheffield, Contemporary British History, January 2019 'Distinctive and interesting.' Matt Grimes, Birmingham City University, Riffs 'The definitive survey of a living underground, still transformative, and forever restless.' Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth 'The Subcultures Network team have curated a lively, thoughtful and thorough collection which explores punk fanzines and their legacy from lots of different angles - full of genuine wonder and enthusiasm for these provocative, often preposterous artefacts.' Lucy Whitman aka Lucy Toothpaste 'Punk rock was a cut and paste culture - a cultural bricolage of pop culture styles reshaped for the then modern age - nowhere was this better underlined than with the explosion of fanzine culture. This book captures that sprit perfectly when a generation empowered by the words are our weapons rallying call of DIY punk rock created their own media.' John Robb -- .
