[Punk in Texas]. [Bill Daniel (photographer, as photobill); Michael Nott (designer)]. The Western Roundup. Austin: 1982. Three original zine issues (all published). Quarto (11 x 8.5 inches; 280 x 216 mm.). Unpaginated, each between four and eight leaves. Fully illustrated in black and white, with original photographs and collage art. Publisher's side-stapled (two issues) or stitched (one issue) bindings; original wrappers. Routine mild wear, mostly at the corners; one issue with soft marginal creasing and soiling to the upper-right corner of the front wrapper. Generally near fine, one issue just very good.

An excellent but short-lived punk zine with a wealth of information about the venerable Austin scene. Features original photographs of the standard pillars: Butthole Surfers, Big Boys, The Dicks, as well as touring bands, such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, and any number of lesser-known bands. One issue printed a checklist of 106 Austin bands (75 of which were already defunct).

Bill Daniel is an artist, photographer and filmmaker. He was born in Dallas then moved to Austin and attended The University of Texas. "In 1980 [he] began photographing punk shows in Texas. The work was based on documenting the nascent Texas punk scene, but also a study of the audience's interaction with the music, gesture, and an abstraction and slicing of space using a 28mm lens and hand-held flash. [He] quit shooting punk shows in 1984..." (billdaniel.net). His photos were the subject of the Texas Punk Problem. It is through billdaniel.net that Michael Nott was identified as the designer; Nott was responsible for several exceptional punk and new wave show fliers, mostly at Club Foot and Raul's, under the name NOXX.
