The predecessor to Anstaett's longrunning related fanzine, The Offense Newsletter. While the Newsletter opted for speed and slenderness, each issue of the TKA Offense was a dense, substantial accumulation of articles, and later issues grew to as long as 70 pages in length. As well as extensive coverage of the local Ohio scenes, there was also extensive coverage of bands from abroad, a slew of intelligent record and fanzine reviews, scene reports from abroad and around the US, and material relating to politics, art, and poetry.
This issue includes a very early interview with Bono of U2, Phantom Limb on the cover! Steve Lillywhite interview, scene reports including a Vancouver report by Metal Mike, comics by Chas. Wince, , a whole slew of reviews,
Very good with some liught fading and dustiness to wraps. Item #29422
