Vague #14, 1983

I made a right pig's ear of the last editorial, so this time I'm not gonna bother, this might be the last Vague but you haven't heard the last from us...
Tom Vague


Well it certainly wasn't the last we heard from Tom: Vague's run stands at 64 and counting (1-15 Post-Punk Fanzines, 16-27 Cyber-Punk Manuals, 28-64 London Psychogeography Reports); factor in writings elsewhere, Vaguerants & extensive contributions to the HistoryTalk Notting Hill Timeline, and it's clear, Tom's had his tuppence worth and there's no sign of the man clamming-up yet. Amongst The Vagrants for V14 were Mick Mercer, Steve Rawlings, Ian Death Cult, The Skyboy, Emil Escape, Erica Echenberg, and Tom's Mam. In keeping with previous issues, V14 is a fantastically vibrant article. Eye-poppingly entertaining and infuriating by turns - - it may be Vague but it's never dull. 12 pages are given over to Southern Death Cult - including an extensive interview, 2 page photo spread and a gig by gig review of the 'Fuck the Fat Bastard Tour'. Elsewhere: The Dancing Did; 13th Chime; an address from Danse Society' Steve Rawlings; Pete Scott's, 'Work. N.O. Fuck Work'; Garry Bushell pisstakery, and 'anarcho-glue-punk-zine-negative-bor-inggg-politicoshit' takes a kicking.


Oh, and here's some really great news, Housmans still have V14 in stock at 2 quid a pop! It's a right bargain - go on, snap one up.

hi nogsy

a meaning?

Apologies, I did intend to respond but you slipped under the radar.

If I remember rightly the bird you refer to is a dove - so really it's just a generic nod towards the message of peace. The logo was designed by Marl 'Varick' Teale and was used in conjunction with a flower breaking through a concrete landscape - it was intended to demonstrate the force of nature.

Please feel free to message me any time.

All the best

hi nogsy

I am very honored to receive the answer from you!
The doubt was able to be solved.
I like ANTI-SYSTEM and MORBID HUMOUR most in all bands!
When you have time, please hear my question.
I am not good at English.
I am sorry when there is an impoliteness.

thank you
