Description: 'International Edition' Showcases The Tape-beatles and 
Public Works. Coming as it did at the end of a four-year gap between 
it and the preceding issue, Psrf 48 took seriously the game of 
catch-up it had to do. So the Tape-beatles and Public Works stepped 
in, and ended up being major contributors of content to the issue. 
Running the gamut from the downright inscrutable to the merely odd, 
we find both groups at the height of their pseudo-journalistic craft. 
Filled with truth, half-truths, and flat-out lies, the texts you will 
find here defy superficial description. They are wholly ballasted by 
the weight of their overwrought paraphrasm.

Public Works also weighs in with a series of photo spreads inspired 
by those from the classic days of Life magazine. The piece "Matter: A 
History of the 3d Millennium" serves as a companion to their (at that 
time) recently-released début CD Matter. And, as if to signal the 
pseudo-demise of that cat-lived group, John Heck offers up a double 
dose, in the form of "The True Uncensored Story Behind the Demise of 
the Tape-beatles," as well as an Expatriot special, "Making the Money 
Which One Merely Looks At."

(Incidentally, the Expatriot was a self-published travel journal that 
Psrf editor Lloyd Dunn wrote during a year he spent living in 
Bordeaux, France, as the guest of Photostatic contributor Philippe 
Billé. This accounts for at least some of that four-year gap we 
mentioned earlier.)

In addition to various scene reports by The Unknown Neoist and Ebon 
Fisher, there are also works by Stephen Perkins, Iain Haig, and Bill 
Brown. A selection of reviews of printed and recorded works rounds 
out the issue.

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as a 
repository for a complete collection of Photostatic Magazine, 
Retrofuturism, and Psrf, in electronic form. We are posting issues in 
PDF format, at more or less regular intervals, in reverse 
chronological order to form a mirror image in time of the original 
series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in 
several year's time, then this electronic archive will be complete.
