During Butt Magazine's early years they had a companion zine, a sisterly counterpart, called Kutt. It was started by their friend Jessica Gysel. She put out a few issues of Kutt and then seemed to disappear, only to resurface a few years later with the fantastic Girls Like Us magazine. Ultimately, Girls Like Us is the better mag--more fully realized, existing on its own rather than as a version of Butt, etc. Regardless, the issues of Kutt are still totally good, if you can find them... I had been looking for ages before I finally found a single copy of issue #3 at St. Marks Books.

See, just like Butt! This is an interview with painter and all around lovely San Francisco resident Alicia McCarthy.

This is my favorite shoot from the issue: I Sat on Something That Reminded Me of You, photographed by Viviane Sassen.

Mud Wrestling! Ack!
