About punk zine ПИОНЕР (PIONEER): Only two issues were brought out by the end of 1980, early 1981. A third issue was published by HOK in 2021 with never before published raw material from 1981; a veritable time capsule with contributions by among others the Raincoats, Zyklon-B, Section XXV, and some Cramps-related niceties. A punk zine as it supposed to be, but with the typical HOK flavor of Riso printing and gadgets and all. The earlier issues of PIONEER presented work by the Jam, The Cure, Patrik Fitzgerald, Jonathan Richman and more.
