Thrasher. October 1989. Vol. 9, No. 10

San Francisco: High Speed Productions, Inc., 1989. Quarto, publisher’s stapled photo-illustrated paper wraps.

October 1989 issue of the influential skateboard magazine. Founded in 1981 by Eric Swenson and Fausto Vitello in San Francisco, Thrasher was originally established as a promotional platform for their skate truck company. Distinguished by a gritty, hardcore layout and anti-establishment ethos, the magazine incidentally became a vital hub for the developing skate community. Chronicling the ascent and transformation of street culture in the Bay Area, Thrasher continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the skate scene, featuring interviews with pros, music profiles, and promotional content for events, all while prominently showcasing skate-related art. Published while founding editor Kevin Thatcher was at the helm, this issue includes reportage on the G&S Cup in Hamburg, photo documentation of the New York scene featuring Harold Hunter and Eric Haze among others, an interview with Lester Kasai, articles on bands such as the Throwing Muses and the Hangmen, and more. Illustrated in color and black-and-white with photographs, art, and ads. Light rubbing to wraps. Near fine. Item #8695
