Merchandise Archive

Within the (admittedly poorly named) Merch section we hope to create a database of everything that has been ever been sold or given away by the Beastie Boys or their affiliated endeavors. If you'll collect it, we'll archive it. We hope to give the Merch section a depth equal to our Discography or Gigography so please contact us if we're missing something (which we know we are).

Title: Blister Fanzine
Year: 1981
Section: Magazines
Dimensions:
Notes: Photocopies of this DIY (do it yourself) fanzine were provided by Raina Accardi, whose photographs were used within it. The late David Scilken (of the Young and the Useless) is credited for having assembled this 'zine. At the time, a perk of being a fanzine publisher was the access granted to bands and the ability to interact with performers for interviews and photographs.

We have compiled the pages from this zine into a PDF for you to enjoy: download
