"The state always has the sole purpose to limit, tame, subordinate, the individual - to make him subject to to some generality or other;
it's last only so long as the individual is not all in all, and it's only clearly-marked restriction of me, my limitation, my slavery." - Max Stirner
The fanzine; Gakk was stationed in Bodø city (a northern city), and released 5 different editions from 1981 to 1984. Gakk had a staff of 6 - 8 persons in diiferent places or cities in Norway, but the prime motor was Jan-Martin Jensen. Gakk were mostly promoting local music, or punk music from the area around, but were lately interested in telling the reader about american or islandic punk music.
