Warning Fanzine

Warning was a zine created by Frank Harlan in 1982, in Anchorage, Alaska.

It was the first punk zine in Alaska. It ran until the fall of 1985. During this time, Frank and his cohorts interviewed some of the best known punk bands of the day, including Black Flag, FEAR, DRI, and Suicidal Tendencies (and help bring the last two bands up to Anchorage in the mid-80s). Most importanly, perhaps, Warning was the mouthpiece for the growing local music scene in Anchorage, featuring interviews and show reviews from local legends such as The Clyng-Onz, Psychedelic Skeletons, and Skate Death. Frank has since moved to Seattle, where he continued Bombshelter Videos, and began work as a professional entertainer.
