"SO YOU GOT IT DID YOU? WELL DON'T EXPECT NOTHING GREAT 'COS I AINT GOT MANY POSITIVE IDEAS,

Brilliantly chaotic one here for a kick-off. A big favourite. Sharp, succinct and witty stuff from Welwyn. Bits on Crass, Poison Girls, Rondos, Epileptics, Rubella Ballet; sniping at the Clash and a withering review of UK Decay/Pneumania. Still, UK Decay proved magnaminous enough, hosting as they did, in December 1979, a Cobalt Hate benefit gig featuring themselves, Crass and Poison Girls. For more see here.

Nice one! It is extraordinary us both getting these blogs started on the same day, six months after the place shut. Shame all the zines there couldn't be scanned but at least we got a bunch of 'em.
