THE KIND OF CRAP THAT TALKS BACK
Ladies & Gentlemen
Eddie Snide, 1980
This is a real corker of a fanzine - starting in 1979, Eddie Snide and Captain Callous produced 12 issues of Grinding Halt. Issue #5 is jam packed with excellent articles and reviews. Decent pieces on Patrick Fitzgerald and The Members. Reviews: 7"s - Those Naughty Lumps, Cult Figures, Apartment, The Donkeys, VIPs, The Yachts, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Scars, Stiffs; LPs - The Undertones, The Members, UK Subs, The Slits, The Pop Group, Magazine, The Fall, The Cure; Live - Mo-Dettes/Athletico Spizz 80/Tenpole Tudor, A Fast Crowd/Idiot Dancers, General Accident/Johnny & The Moondogs, The Wall, The Cramps/The Fall/Fashion, The Flatbackers/The K9s, Crisis/The Lazers/The Straps, and Wasted Youth. The interviews with Athletico Spizz 80 and Wreckless Eric are particularly smashing.
