CLE was a fanzine first published in 1977 by an eighteen-year-old college student in Cleveland, Ohio, Jim Ellis. He was inspired by Peter Laughner and the first iteration of punk bands (Electric Eels, Mirrors, and Rocket from the Tombs, which had already ceased to be) to document the new groups rising from their ashes, Dead Boys and Pere Ubu, as well as Akron oddballs Devo, Detroit's Destroy All Monsters, and CBGBs mainstays Mink Deville. The CLE logo was a detournement of Cleveland Hopkins airport luggage tags.
