SNIFFIN' GLUE - This month in 1977 they published their final issue..number 12. It was only around for a year or so. A monthly fanzine called Sniffin' Glue, which chronicled the early days of British Punk Rock. Although initial issues only sold about 50 copies, circulation soon increased to 15,000. Fearing absorption into the mainstream music press, publisher Mark Perry would cease operations. In 2000, Mark Perry published Sniffin' Glue: The Essential Punk Accessory, which is a compilation of all the issues of the fanzine with some new material written by him.
