Public Collectors
has received an amazing gift. The Chicago-based artist, performer, and
musician Sid Yiddish has donated his entire collection of back issues of
Maximum Rocknroll, the critical publication that I use for the project Hardcore Architecture.
Here is a second photo of this donation. Sid’s collection, which also includes many of his brother’s copies,
starts way back at around issue #30 and spans about 8 years of the
magazine. His donation fills almost every hole in my own collection of
issues from around #30 to #100, and will massively help with the work
I’ve been doing. Duplicate copies will be either shared at events or
used to trade for other issues I am missing. Huge thanks to Nell Taylor
of Read/Write Library for putting me in touch with Sid. You can see Sid Yiddish’s website here. He’s also on Facebook and Youtube
