The Gargoyle & Nosey Neighbours Supplement #4, 1980

ED. "What inspired the song I'm in Love with Margaret Thatcher?"

Haggis, "Cos we hate her"

An utterly charming little fanzine is The Gargoyle & Nosey Neighbours Supplement. Produced in Mytholmroyd by Steve Baldwin, this issue of TG&NNS is almost entirely text; the Plectrum Boy comic strip being the only graphic concession. Issue 4 features a decent, if silly interview with The Not-Sensibles; letters of jesting menace and encouragement from The Dresden Tax Dodgers and Discharge Cal respectively; a review of Futurama [Gary Glitter / Athletico Spizz 80 / Boots For Dancing / Hazel O'Connor / The Psychedelic Furs / Echo & The Bunnymen / Brian Brain / The Flowers / The Soft Boys / Young Marble Giants / The 4be2s]; Popeye / Annie Anxiety / Poison Girls / Crass at Halifax Lee Mount Club (including a brief interview with Pete Wright); Belladonna / The Magnetos at Hebden Bridge + news, charts, gig guide and crossword.
