In The City #10, 1979

'The greatest blasphemy is the hideous use of Christ & the hideous use of God......I think the blasphemy that Boney M committed by sort of going up with their totally sexual, slimy filth, doing Mary's Boy Child - I mean that's real blasphemy'.
Penny Rimbaud, 1979


Pen aiming for some real villains there...hilarious. At any rate, this issue of In The City is another belter throughout. Excellent articles on Eddie & The Hot Rods, Culture, Gloria Mundi, Tubeway Army, and Crass (first in a series of articles culled from a lengthy interview - the rest will be posted here eventually - A. because the encounter is very searching, and B. the pages simply look fantastic). The usual Jawing, news, charts and a Dave Cresswell cartoon: the Sex Pistols Hoax. Live: The Undertones, and The Members. Vinyl reviews: Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Linval Thompson & Trinity, Menace, The Monochrome Set, The Wall, Wayne County, Resistance, Kim Fowley, Tubeway Army, Electric Eels, Eddie & The Hot Rods, The Jam, Magazine, Four Kings, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Fingerprintz, Fashion Music, Johnny Curious & The Strangers, Blast Furnace, ATV, Patrik Fitzgerald, Sham 69, Klark Kent, The Lines, File Under Pop, Spizz Oil, Chris Cross, The Only Ones, Duffo, The Revolutionaires, and The Skids.

Fantastic stuff again Si.....thanks for posting this ! On a different note....nice to see the Anti System stuff reissued (and not before time !) thanks again....

Nice one Chris.

Yes, they've done a good job with those reissues - though I find the 4 coloured vinyl Defence 7"s quite comical. Great to have everything available on the one disc selling for under a fiver too.

Cheers again lad
