The most controversial and infamous British fanzine of the 1980s, SHEER FILTH returns in book form, bolder and filthier than ever! Published between 1987 and 1990, SHEER FILTH offered a heady mix of shocking film and book reviews, wild music coverage, weird cartoons, incisive features and fascinating interviews with icons of cult cinema and adult entertainment. Mixing serious analysis with wild enthusiasm, SHEER FILTH covered everything from XXX-rated cinema to true crime novels, from sleazy rock'n'roll to experimental movies, and from pulp fiction to cutting-edge art. SHEER FILTH brought the world the first coverage of Jorg Buttgereit's Nekromantik, Psychic TV's extraordinary First Transmission, cult classic Death Bed: The Bed That Eats, and much more. Under the guidance of editor David Flint, SHEER FILTH was the proving ground for a host of aspiring journalists and authors who would go on to write for Headpress, Ungawa, Divinity, Shock Xpress, Skin Two and Penthouse. SHEER FILTH ran for 9 ground-breaking issues. At long last, this 10th edition gathers together almost all of the original contents, and also includes plenty of sensational previously unseen material! Fans of horror, sleaze, exploitation, adult, fetish, underground, alternative, and cult entertainment rejoice! The Filth is back!
