In 1977 V. Vale founded Search & Destroy, San Francisco’s first punk publication. In 1980 he launched RE/Search Publications, a publishing house that has helped bring artists from the underground to light, such as William S. Burroughs, J.G. Ballard, Genesis P-Orridge, SPK and Monte Cazazza. Along with Marian Wallace, an experimental filmmaker, V. Vale tours the world sharing an impressive history of counter-culture and rich collection of material amassed over the years.
