Compiles the first nine issues of Al Burian's sporadically published and widely acclaimed personal zine which he distributed through the punk and DIY scene. Famed for its unusual content, Burn Collector featured humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings and odd locales, a rarity in the punk scene. Added to this, the author's narrative voice reflected his literary influences of Celine, Henry Miller and even comedian David Sedaris. Burn Collector blueprinted a post-punk persona that was smart, strange and political but certainly not correct.
"Al would probably deny it, but reading these stories again it's quite clear that he was the voice of a generation." --Dan Sinker, founder, "Punk Planet" zine
