Brooklyn Insurgents

New York's third informal (and second invitational) club made up primarily of fanzine fans, begun in the late 1960s and continued through the early 1970s, when it was felt that the other two clubs for fanzine fans was suffering a kind of Barbarian Invasion. Like the other two, it was essentially a regular party, without rules or dues or formal procedures. The Brooklyn Insurgents were noted for not really insurging against much of anything, except the same kind of thing insurgents had been insurging against since the 1940s. Co-founded by Arnie Katz and rich brown, initially called "Raymond" (until the joke wore thin), held first in the apartment of rich & Colleen Brown and later in the apartment of Arnie & Joyce Katz.
