Vintage Voice: Read Our Old Stories at Google!


Google has finally uploaded our back issues, which stretch all the way back to our debut on October 26, 1955, online. (It cost five cents then; it costs you nothing now. Vive le Internet!) Interestingly, Google’s news blog announcement links to Lester Bangs’ classic Iggy story, “Blowtorch in Bondage.” You can read that whole issue — the one pictured, from March 28, 1977, and apparently featuring Spinal Tap — and hundreds of others. Read long-unseen Feiffer cartoons and Andrew Sarris’ profile of Herve Villechaise! See us denounce Carmine DeSapio! Get mad at our coverage of ancient history as well as of current events! Happy hunting.
