Heres a collection of stickers, fanzine covers/content, booklets, t-shirts, and even two newspaper articles about The Backstage (one being a review of a 1982 Black Flag performance). Theres also some excellent content regarding the thermonuclear geo-political state of 1983, providing insight as to what fueled the angst of many musicians of the era. Hardcore certainly provided an avenue of expression for a wide variety of artists at the time. Many thanks go out to Conflict singer Karen Allman for providing about half the content herein, and Taylor Winsted for digging up the zine from Alaska.

The remainder of this section is material sent to me by Gorb70. He took a scanner to a fistful of old press from 1982-83 and ended up with a veritable "time capsule" of advertisements, reviews, and "scene reports". If you were in a band or part of the "scene" in Tucson or Phoenix during that time, no doubt you'll recognize some names if not see your own. Enjoy!
