Subvert #4, 1982

Resurrection Issue

Here you go, an 'early 80's classic from Keighley' - so says Sned over at the UK Zine Library where the lad has uploaded issues 2, 3 and 5 - collected here at Punks is Hippies. I agree, it's a belter, especially appealing for those with an anarcho/industrial bent - - spot-on work by Richard Jevons. Ironically, the interview with John Peel sees our dearly departed DJ disapproving of most of the groups featured in Subvert #4; namely Throbbing Gristle, Poison Girls and Crass. There are brief pieces on ABC, and Guiseley's, Requiem* - whom it's worth noting had a fair fanzine creator in their midst in the form of guitarist Hitch whose Shiny Calipers will eventually feature here on ee. Requiem** bassist/vocalist Jont and I would go on to make rakes of noise, completing 3 tours of Europe  and recording a 12" with Zed*** between '89 - '91,  and later getting somewhat laid back with Mark 'Marky' Appleyard's Moota****. Elsewhere we have reviews of the Wargasm compilation, Zoundz, The Business, Conflict, Rudimentary Peni, Scritti Politti and Rubella Ballet.
