New Wave zine (one-shot?) from editor Ron Spector, founder of White Noise Records.
WHITE NOISE - Volume 1 Number 1
A west coast magazine, LA-centric but with aims of a broad audience, emerging from the late seventies post-punk scene in southern California. The introductory editorial for this premier issue explains the editors' reactionary tendencies against mainstream rock journalism in publications like Rolling Stone, in favor of a casual style and covering emerging musicians rather than rehashing musicians they deem old and tired; the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Crosby, Stills and Nash, etc. Additionally the magazine reports not only on music but all comprehensive pop culture, as explained in the editorial, "At least one of White Noise's stated aims is to extend the writing to these other, related but often conveniently overlooked wings of the American entertainment spectrum. The assumption that the kind of person who digs the music of Blondie and the Ramones is likely to be interested in Sgt. Bilkp, crummy teen exploitation movies and cheap chic clothes, is one WN makes frankly." Scarce.
