DISCO SALLY
-
Disco Sally is a legend in the New York City Disco scene. A frequent visitor of New York's celebrated Studio 54 club in the 1970s. Sally represented the best of the discotheque for everyone: she was neither rich nor famous like many that went to 54. She was a woman who just loved to dance. A retired attorney, Sally Lippman was 77 and mourning the death of her husband when a friend invited her out to go dancing. She didn’t dance for 50 years because her husband didn't like it. This zine aims to celebrate her lust for life.

SYNTH ME UP BABY!
Synth-pop is a sub-genre of New Wave music that first became prominent in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. The music genre generally using synthesiser as the dominant musical instrument. Even in its infancy, the U.K. synth-pop scene was diverse and hard to pin down. The genre had a keen awareness and was sketching out a whole new approach to music using the increasingly accessible (and increasingly affordable) technology. This zine champions the synthesiser itself, the instrument helped musicians think in alternate ways they hadn't before.
