Nihilistic Vices #1, 1979

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS SWEET F.A.
THEN WE GOT UP AND PRODUCED
NIHILISTIC VICES

So, 'Not Just A Fanzine' eh? Well I am inclined to agree. It has the feel of a Toxic Graffitti or some such - though not quite as dense as TG. Contributors for issue 1 include Jonny Cretin, Grolly Green, Tarka the Otter, Dibblewacky and Dormouse - I wish I had their real names. Anyway, NV is a great non-fanzine featuring: short pieces on Nuclear Power, drugs (socially acceptable and otherwise), ethical dressing with Punky Plimmies, the Tories coming to power in So, Maggie Snatcher's in, and The Nihilistic Vices' Guide to Street Credibility; The Great Rock 'N' Roll Bore cartoon; controversial singles in the shape of The Clash - Cost Of Living EP, The Damned - Love Song, XRay Spex - Inflammable Material, Chas & Dave - Gertcha, and ATV - The Force is Blind; 7"s - The Mekons, The Pack, Crisis, Bauhaus, Spizz Energi, UK Decay/Pneumania, Gloria Mundi, and The Wall; LPs - UK Subs, Punishment of Luxury, Joy Division, Gary Numan, Tubeway Army, and The Fall; poetry; interesting collage; live review of Slaughter & the Dogs; and a review of Patrik Fitzgerald's, Poems.
