The Twisted Magazine collection contains three issues, comprising a complete run, of the Seattle-published early punk fanzine
that covered major punk acts along with future local legends in the emerging punk scene of the Pacific Northwest.
Twisted--also titled "Twisted Magazine," with the first issue subtitled "Another Rock 'N' Roll Magazine"--published interviews and
band profiles written by V. Vale, John Doe, Ajax, and others. The magazine also covered reviews of live performances and recordings
by local and national artists, including Blondie, The Cramps, Sex Pistols Television, The Lewd, Iggy Pop, The Damned, Screamers,
Black Randy, S'nots, and many others.
Twisted was possibly the first west coast publication to cover The Ramones. The three issues of
Twisted, ranging from July 1977 to March 1978, feature a mix of promotional and candid band photos contributed by Kathy Hammond,
Dag Rex, and K. Leo.
