Watertown, MA: Forced Exposure, Early 1980s-1993. First Editions. Stapled quartos. Forced Exposure was an independent music magazine founded by Jimmy Johnson and Katie "The Kleening Lady" Goldman. It was printed on cheap newsprint with plain design and filled with corrosive, humorous writing. While there were articles and reviews of various counterculture figures in literature (Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Philip K. Dick) and film (Richard Kern, Nick Zedd), the primary focus was independent, punk, and obscure music. The list of contributors and interviewees reads like a who's who of underground music from the time: Steve Albini, Mission of Burma, Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch, etc. The last issue of the magazine, #18, was released in 1993. The first three issues are stapled newsprint zines, saddle stitched; wrap around covers were used from issue number 4 on and full color, saddle stitched, wrap around covers on superior paper stock were used from issue 6 until the end of the run with number 18 - the final 146-page issue being perfect bound, all near fine.
