Johnny Ray Huston
Johnny Ray Huston (AKA John Huston) is a zine editor and writer from San Francisco, Ca, U.S.A.
Johnny Ray Huston's first zine, begun with Erin Smith, was Teenage Gang Debs. The first issue appeared in 1988. After the first issue Erin's brother Don became co-editor, while Johnny Ray continued to contribute articles.
During the late 1980s and early 1990s Huston also worked on You can't hide your love forever with brothers Michael and Dave Segal, a zine devoted to lo-fi, indie rock, punk and post punk bands.
Huston's next zine, after moving to San Francisco, was the Pop Culture zine, Campfire, co-edited with Jeffery Kennedy. Two issues of the zine appeared in the 1990s and featured contributors such as Johnny Noxzema, Gary Gregerson and Matt Wobensmith , editor of Outpunk.
In 2009, Huston participated in the collective project Box of Books Vol II, with Darin Klein. Twenty five different artists and writers each created their own chapbook or artists' book, which were gathered together into one box and published in an edition of 100.
Johnny Ray Huston is at present a writer for various San Francisco publications, his by-line appearing frequently in papers such as San Franciso Bay Guardian, where he is the Arts and Entertainment editor.
