Nearly a year in the making, my fanzine about the “Yugoslavia’s GG Allin,” Satan Panonski. A legend in his own time this queer, utopian, internationalist punk spent 9 years in a mental hospital for murder before releasing two albums in two years, and joining a Croatian militia to fight in the Yugoslav wars, in which he was killed. His tragic story is, to me, allegorical to the fall of 20th century socialism and punk. The biography is accompanied by poetry translated by Nikolina Lazetic and an essay about the politics of early Yugoslav punk by Patrick Offenheiser.
