Soon after this second issue appeared, many of the magazine’s contributors were featured in the catalogue for the “Punk Art” exhibition held at the Washington Project for the Arts in 1978. Contributors include: Kathy Acker, Charlie Ahearn, Beth B, Scott B, Duncan Hannah, Tina LHotsky, Eric Mitchell, Alan Moore, James Nares, Amos Poe, Marcia Resnick, Duncan Smith, Robin Winters, others.
