Blam #2, 1981

I intend to post a fair few of Pete Hall's Blams. This early issue is sparingly designed but buoyed on: decent interviews with Au Pairs, Modern English, Frenzid Melon, Flux of Pink Indians (by post); profiles of Josef K, Surrounded by Masks; Interesting News about Synchromesh, Dogma Cats/Leisure Sounds/Ersatz/The Barrier Fades, Special Duties; live reviews of Funeral Directors, Fad Gadget / Depeche Mode / Palais Schaumberg / Furious Pig, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Adicts / Waxwork Dummies / Special Duties / Spasmodic Caress; reviews of cassettes by Special Duties, I'm Dead (The Wonders of Medical Science, and Terry's Left Ear), and the New Crimes' fanzine compilation, New Criminals, featuring The Subhumans, Sinyx, Mix: 86, Stripey Zebras, A.P.F. Brigade, FoPI, Enola Death. Viv Beeton contributed.
