More of a book sized fanzine, that resembles Sniffin’ Glue in terms of layout and design. Edited by Julie Davis, with articles by various contributors including the likes of Sex Ade, Lucy Toothpaste and Charlie Chainsaw.
The Damned are covered in both articles, gig reviews at Dingwalls and the Marquee and a review of their 1st LP…Next, a section on Girl Bands :Lucy Toothpaste interviews three of the Slits & Poly Styrene of Xray Spex, while Jane Suck talks to Siouxsie Sioux….Although some stock photos are used, most of the content is unique to this book.Main photo contributors Walt Davidson, Erica Echenberg, with John Goto, John Hill, Pete Kravitz and Steve Sparks.
A totally honest and unselfconscious account of the period, as seen and heard at the time. The best book of its kind and as a companion piece to Sniffin’ Glue.
Unfortunately, as with many of these titles, even if it escaped being torn up and pasted onto a punk bedroom wall, it’s a glued , “perfect binding “ and unless stored properly for the last forty + years prone to self destruct with time… Since its purely an original punk item, its never caught up price wise with 100 Nights at the Roxy or Costa photobooks but with clean copies in short supply it has risen in value drastically in the last few years. Even if a copy with no toning or fading on the covers, the spine is always discoloured.
