"SHEER FILTH is one of the rockingest zines... eruditely penned yet heartily low class."
-- SCREW MAGAZINE

 

The most controversial and infamous British fanzine of the 1980s, SHEER FILTH returns in book form, bolder and filthier than ever!

 

Published between 1987 and 1990, SHEER FILTH offered a heady mix of shocking film and book reviews, wild music coverage, weird cartoons, incisive features and fascinating interviews with icons of cult cinema and adult entertainment. Mixing serious analysis with wild enthusiasm, SHEER FILTH covered everything from XXX-rated cinema to true crime novels, from sleazy rock ‘n’ roll to experimental movies, and from pulp fiction to cutting-edge art. SHEER FILTH was the first publication to cover the likes of Psychic TV's First Transmission, Death Bed: The Bed That Eats and Nekromantik, and includes interviews with cult movie legends like David F. Friedman, Samuel Z. Arkoff, Norman J. Warren, Pamela Green and Annie Sprinkle, as well as articles covering SPK, Pee Wee Herman, Robert Bresson and Cicciolina, and reviews ranging from Archaos Circus to GG Allin.

 

Under the guidance of editor David Flint, SHEER FILTH was the proving ground for a host of aspiring journalists and authors who would go on to write for Headpress, Ungawa, Divinity, Shock Xpress, Skin Two and Penthouse. SHEER FILTH ran for 9 ground-breaking issues. At long last, this 10th edition gathers together almost all of the original contents, and also includes plenty of sensational previously unseen material!

 

Fans of horror, sleaze, exploitation, adult, fetish, underground, alternative, and cult entertainment rejoice! 

 

THE FILTH IS BACK!

 

“Draws the reader into a hermetically sealed world of sleaze.”
