Wikipedia Information


Denim Delinquent was an underground fanzine of seven issues in total, published from 1971 to 1976. It was the first rock and roll fanzine to come out of Canada. The zine began as a launching pad for the writing of Jymn Parrett and Mark Jones in Ottawa, Ontario. After the first two Ottawa-based issues, subsequent Denim Delinquents were published out of Los Angeles by Jymn and Dee Parrett. The content of these issues included articles about music groups playing the Sunset Strip, including the Whisky a Go Go. Contributors included Lester Bangs, Jeremy Gluck (later of The Barracudas), Danny Sugerman, Jeffrey Morgan AKA Machine Rock (Creem). Interviews and features spanned such groups as:

Iggy and the Stooges Kiss Kinks New York Dolls Mott the Hoople Michael Nesmith Monty PythonOriginal issues of Denim Delinquent sell for over $300 on eBay. For many years after the demise of Denim Delinquent, Jymn Parrett continued to write for various Canadian music magazines, including Cheap Thrills, Stagelife, Roxy and more recently, "Ugly Things." A compendium of Denim Delinquent issues was published by the book division of HoZac Records, May 2016. It was sold out in one week. A second edition sold out as well.
