ZIG ZAG was the name of a cutting-edge UK rock music magazine. Started in 1969 by Pete Frame the magazine was famous for its thorough interviews, well-researched articles, innovative "rock trees" ... and taste in American songwriters ...
"The first issue was April 1969 ... I called it Zigzag after the Captain Beefheart track Zigzag Wanderer and also the cigarette papers, which were used for rolling joints ... I kept it going until issue 30, then went off to do other stuff, but I came back for numbers 59 to 74, but then left again when punk came in." (Pete Frame)
In total 134 issues, April 1969 - February 1983. Britain's best rock magazine of the period. Its success owed much to its adaptability and willingness to shape and reflect changing tastes in music, taking punk in its stride, and successfully mixing genres.
