Adhesive X was a New Hampshire-based punk fanzine. The editors, Mike F. and Mike G., published a total of five issues between 1994 and 1997. Gus and Terry G. Lorber II regularly contributed columns.

The first issue looked pretty shoddy -- first time -- but featured reviews and an interview with shades Apart. Fiction writer Mark Holt-Shannon made his published debut in this issue.

The second issue had a way better cover, drawn by Seacoast musician/artist Dan Blakeslee, and featured interviews with Sinkhole and Bender. Adhesive X #2 has the unique distinction of boasting the first published work by both Brendan Emmett Quigley and Mike Nothnagel, both of whom now write crossword puzzles for the New York Times.

Adhesive X #3 was the best of the batch -- interviews with Jawbox and Whirlybird, and cover art by Sinkhole's Thatcher Ulrich.

Adhesive X #4 was the April Fools' issue. Everything contained therein was totally fake. The joke was even funnier when you stop to consider that it wasn't released until the summer.

Something like seven copies of Adhesive X #5 were printed -- not enough cash, yo.

Mike F. later went on to release three issues of Frame 609, a perzine. After that, he changed his name back to Michael T. Fournier and wrote a book on the Minutemen's "Double Nickels On The Dime" album as the 45th installment of Continuum Press's 33 1/3 series.
