Heatwave magazine, 1966

Heatwave cover
Heatwaves 1 & 2 emerged in 1966. Heatwave 3, largely drafted, was never published though the front cover featured in Dancin’ in the Streets. Charles Radcliffe and Chris Gray joined L’Internationale Situationniste in October 1966 and for that reason it was never published.

Heatwave 1 & 2 were direct descendants of The Chicago Rebel Worker and came from the revolutionary ferment that surrounded us. Heatwave 1 was a more or less solo effort whereas Heatwave 2 was edited by Charles Radcliffe and Chris Gray. This magazine, though amateurish in appearance, was very influential.

Heatwave Magazine - UK, 1960s

Mod & scooter, 1960s

Texts about and from 1966 British magazine Heatwave, which was linked to American Surrealists and radical unionists.

The Revolution of Modern Art and the Modern Art of Revolution (Clark, Gray, Nicholson-Smith, Radcliffe & others, 1967)

A situationist-influenced critique of modern art by some UK radicals in the days of 1967 when, for many, revolution seemed to be getting close. Despite the occasional silly over-estimation of delinquency and shop-lifting, still a fine critique of its time of art and its limits.
