After 50 Years, Panter Publishes an Underground Paper

Better late than never. Gary Panter, the prince of punk publications and the king of the Ratty Line, told me he’s always wanted to produce a hippie newspaper. Now, in 2017, 50 years after the Summer of Love, he made it happen. Fog Window is a psychedelic volcano of pictures, words, color and love.

The newsprint paper is available during Panter’s exhibition at Marlborough Contemporary Gallery through Nov. 11.

Panter says this is a dream (or an acid trip) come true, and was made to be an insert in the next Devin Gary & Ross LP. “Char Esme, a former student, designed and did all the collages from my material,” he says. “Norman Hathaway and I advised her about hippie papers and I loaned her my Oracles, and so on.”
