|-|Subtitled "An L.A. Punk Zine," '''Glossolalia''' was a photocopied, garage-punk zine from Los Angeles, California. U.S.A. created by [[ Ron K]] and [[CHAS]] . It was known for its interesting interviews with garage-punk bands as well as its brutally honest record reviews, sarcastic local scene reports as well as a feature in which the classical- music, composer-father of one of the editors reviewed punk music. Though initially popular amongst the scenester-set it soon became known as "L.A.'s most hated zine" due to its editors alienating some of the local zines like ''[[ Flipside]] '', ''[[ Ben Is Dead]] '' and ''[[ Fiz]] '' magazine. |+|

Mail order customers were charged $1-$2 per issue (stamps were accepted in lieu of payment). The zine was started by Ron K who was studying for his Masters in Library Science at UCLA. A paper he was writing -- about the history of zines -- sparked his interest in starting a non-political punk zine. A friend of his, CHAS, was recruited to co-edit and do layouts and help with interviews. CHAS had access to a copy machine at a friend's workplace and would photocopy after hours for free.
