Nice try Jah but your request fell on ears deaf to such pleas. Anyroad, Ithink I may have used up all available superlatives enthusing about the fanzines that have appeared on ee thus far - certainly, short of indulging in a bout of neologising, I'd struggle to adequately give voice to my full opinion of this particular item. Suffice to say, it may well be my all-time favourite fanzine - I love everything about the bugger - back in 1980 it opened my senses and broadened my horizons so radically that I've felt indebted to Simon Dwyer ever since. The interviews here: Wire, The Chefs, and Andy Warhol are all exceptionally good - but the encounter with Crass is the zenith as far as I'm concerned - it's an utter tour de force. The remainder of the fanzine retains an outstanding quality not least the article about Philip K. Dick and the letter from Nag (Door & Window / n.b.records). In a word, Awesome!
