Background information

Heatwave - Charles Radcliffe founded the anarchist magazine Heatwave, as a sister magazine of the Rebel Worker (Chicago), of which he co-edited the one-off English issue 6 together with Franklin & Penelope Rosemont. Both magazines became known for their original revolutionary perspective, innovative social/cultural criticism and class-war humor. They developed a truly radical theory and practice, rooted in poetry, provocation, blues, jazz and pleasure. Active in e.g. strikes and free-speech fights, they also introduced readers to important writings by and about surrealists, situationists, IWW (Industrial Workers of the World), anarchists, libertarian Marxists, Provos, the Japanese Zengakuren and others.

In 1966, two issues of Heatwave were published in London. Of issue one, two printings were published in 1966. The second issue was jointly edited with Christopher Gray, and was heavily influenced by a meeting with Guy Debord and the induction of both editors into the Situationist International (SI). A third issue was planned, but shelved after both editors abandoned the SI.
