Communicade #1


Produced by members of the Hutt Valley punk band Compos Mentis, Communicade lasted only three issues from 1985 before tensions within the band led both the zine and the group to split in 1986. Featuring contributions from Craig, David, Grant, Heather and Simon, Communicade covered the New Zealand underground punk scene as well as printing reports, interviews and articles on Australia, the UK, Italy and the USA from an anarcho-punk perspective. Post Compos Mentis, Craig went on to co-produce Divided We Fall with other members of the band Nazgul.
