Stereo Headphones: an occasional magazine of the new poetries

[Nicholas Zurbrugg, editor]
Stereo Headphones #1
Suffolk, UK: Self-published, 1969
[24] pp, 21.5 x 14 cm., staple-bound
Edition of 500

Stereo Headphones billed itself as “an occasional magazine of the new poetries” and published only ten issues in thirteen years. Of these, two were multi-issues so only seven actual magazines were published.

The debut issue included contributions by Anselm Hollo, Thomas A. Clark, Dick Higgins, Edwin Morgan, Robert Lax, Pedro Xisto, Stephen Bann, Charles Verey, Jiri Valoch, bpNichol and the editor,
Nicholas Zurbrugg.

Zurbrugg, then a poet and artist in his early twenties, served as both the editor and publisher. He later turned to academia, publishing several titles on art and poetry. Zurbrugg died of a brain haemorrhage at the age of 54, in 2001.
