Few figures are as important to the early San Francisco Bay Area punk scene as V. Vale. PSA Press teamed up with the legendary editor and publisher to bring you this icon of counterculture, the official RE/Search logo pin. RE/Search Publications is an American magazine and publisher based in San Francisco, founded by its editor V. Vale in 1980. He is likely the longest-running punk publisher still active today. RE/Search is the successor to Vale's earlier punk rock zine Search & Destroy (1977-1979) which was started with $200 provided to Vale by Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Search & Destroy was the very first punk rock and new wave publication to emerge in San Francisco and has gained mythic status among punk rock and zine aficionados.
