No Fun, Torso, And Plurex Flashback To The Punk And Post-Punk Era
By journalists Oscar Smit and Leonor Faber-Jonker
This Riso printed booklet pays homage to the independent record labels No Fun, Torso, and Plurex, which together played a pivotal role in the rise and dissemination of punk and post-punk music in the Netherlands from the late 1970s through the ’80s.
A limited-edition reprint of a publication produced for an exhibition in Amsterdam in 2016, it gives an account of No Fun and Plurex, both based in Amsterdam, who were among the first labels to connect with the young punk movement.
No Fun soon changed its name to Torso and continued to build an impressive and varied catalog.
The booklet highlights the personal memories and views of the musicians and other key figures to tell the story of these labels.
With illustrations by Joost Swarte and Max Kisman
