Barricade #1, 1980

BARRICADE. Why did you leave Belfast?
HENRY. I didn't I still live there.

It's a buoyant one is Barricade - its unabashed enthusiasm for 'everything musical from Ulster' is to be applauded. Based in Saltash/Cornwall Dave, Mark and Sarah produced, I think 4 issues of Barricade between 1980-1982. Features, live reviews and interviews with SLF (Henry Cluney), Rudi, The Outcasts, The Undertones, and The Idiots. If you've not seen it yet, watch John T. Davis' excellent 1979 film Shell Shock Rock - this fantastic document of Northern Ireland's vibrant punk scene is a fair indicator of why Barricade came into being.
