Sniffin' Glue

Sniffin' Glue is the name of a famous and pioneering monthly punk fanzine started by Mark Perry[?] in July 1976 and released for about a year. Initially the fanzine sold about 50 copies and when its circulation rose to 15,000 Perry decided to close it because he was afraid to be absorbed into the mainstream rock journalism. In the last issues he encouraged his readers follow him with their own punk fanzines. NME acclaimed "Sniffin' Glue" as "the nastiest, healthiest and funniest piece of press in the history of rock'n'roll habits" and it really became the true chronicle of the early days of British punk rock. Later some called it the Bible of the punk movement. Some issues were accompanied with records of Mark Perry's band Alternative TV.

In 2000, Mark Perry published "Sniffin' Glue: The Essential Punk Accessory", which is a compilation of all the issues of the fanzine with some new material written by him.
