'A sidesplitting chronicle of the inescapable influence of America's 37th President, Richard
M. Nixon, on one of the art world's liveliest mavericks, Jeffrey Vallance.' Growing up in
California in the 1960's, Vallance became, seemingly inevitably, mildy obsessed by Richard
Nixon. In 1990 after his offer to donate some of his artwork to the official Richard Nixon
Library was declined, Vallance created his own Richard Nixon Museum exhibition.
This pocket-sized book contains a mixture of Nixonian ephemera, artwork and
anecdotes in Jeffrey Vallance's unique style - blurring history and mythology
Paperback, USA, 2005, 18 x 13cm, 32 pgs.

THE NEXT BIG THING #28, 40th Anniversary Issue, 1977-2017.

Lindsay Hutton started The Next Big Thing, named after a Dictators song, in early 1977
and published 23 issues in the next 10 years - that's an impressive schedule and a further 5
issues appeared sporadically over the next thirty years. Initially fired up by 'Punk', N.B.T.
increasingly sought out the raw rock'n'roll energy of punk's predecessors and earlier
influences. With extensive gig, record and zine reviews, charts and collages and articles
from an illustrious list of contributors. N.B.T. was always enthused, informative and
opinionated, articles are often handwritten and signed by the author - a neat personal touch,
and there's plenty of Scots phrases thrown in to baffle Sassenachs. Pure Dead Brilliant.
Issue 28, has editor Lindsays' reminiscences on his fanzine 'career', Amy Rigby's memories
of moving to NYC in 1976, Art Fein on being The Cramps' manager, a report from the
Fantastic Dracula Carnival in Benidorm, a story from J.D.King, hate mail, Norwegian
pop/punk duo The Dahlmanns, The Shizophrenics, a conversation between Laura Cantrell
and Amy Rigby and a letter from Morrissey (from 1983!) Plus a 7" single from The
Dahlmanns. (Also available without the vinyl if you live in a record-player free household.)
7"x7" packaged with a header card, 32 pages, 2017.
