This Is The Salivation Army
The first issue of this black and white, cut and pasted, photocopied zine was released in 1996. Ten issues have been published to date. During this time editor Treleaven was interviewed in zines such as Broken Pencil and Fanorama. The zine incorporated a vivid mixture of punk, goth, the occult and industrial music aesthetics. Articles about filmmakers Derek Jarman and Kenneth Anger were featured. Contributors included AA Bronson, Black Sun Productions, G.B. Jones, Jason Louv, Paul P. , Genesis P-Orridge and Ango Visone.
In 2002, Scott presented an overview of his zine experience in a film entitled The Salivation Army which quickly became a cult hit, playing at film festivals across North America and Europe and counting as issue 9 of the zine. In 2004, 'Issue X' of the zine was released. In 2006, on the tenth anniversary of the zine, all the issues were gathered together and issued in book form as The Salivation Army Black Book.
This Is The Salivation Army is filled with editor Treleaven's distinctive collages, which he now exhibits in galleries around the world. His work has also appeared on CD covers and t-shirts, and in books and periodicals.
