Head Press

Headpress was founded in Manchester, England, in 1991, ostensibly to release a film by cult German director JŲrg Buttgereit on VHS. With revenue from the sales of that film (Der Todesking, limited to 500 copies), the publication of a magazine soon followed. Headpress was a long-running journal on a variety of topics, which contitute, it might be said, the ebb and flow of the counterculture in the last decade of the twentieth century. Running concurrent to the magazine was the Headpress book publishing arm, which emerged in 1992 and continues to this day. Subject matter of Headpress books is wide-ranging and includes cult film, strange music, pulp literature, fanzines, conspiracy theories, sex and gender, occult and folklore, true crime, and pop culture in general. Headpress is run by David Kerekes, one of the three original founders.
