Jamming #11, 1980

Punk is where you find it!
I'm just on with reading Jamming Ed., Tony Fletcher's new book, Boy About Town, and very enjoyable it is too with some ace insights into the world of fanzines. Not least, there's a particularly excellent section on Tony's introduction to Joly McFie, that wonderful guru of UK fanzinedom  - I thoroughly recommend you cop hold of it. Anyroad, here's issue 11 of Jamming - easily one of the best fanzines published anywhere, ever! It quite simply has the lot - great interviews and articles and an abundance of interesting bits & bats bulge and spill from its fabulously colourful pages. Interviews - Zeitgeist, The Beat, The Dead Kennedys, and The Shout; articles - Swiss Wave (Felix Fischer Ed. of Swiss fanzine, Jamming [confusingly] mentioning 101, Sick of the One Day Kick, Nasal Boys, Sperma, Dogbodys, Yello, Troppo, Hertz, No Fun [fanzine], Kraft Durch Freude, Mutterfreuden, Kleenex, Liliput, TNT, Glueams, Mother's Ruin, Liars, Gauzone, Technicolor, Zero Heroes, Bastards, and Tickets); It's 4 Years Later and What Have We Got? (Tony ponders the lack of decent venues and the notion that 'rock 'n' roll is dead'; Birmingham's Burning (Dave Jennings has a squint at Brum notingThe De-Go-Tees, Vision Collision, Duran Duran, Dance, The Nightingales); The Jam Effect appraises the Sound Effects and the attendant live tour; excellent fanzine Round-Up [A-M] + an appreciation of Better Badges; LPs - Adam & The Ants, Sector 27, Spec Records, The Fall, The Damned; 7"s - Wah Heat, Art Objects, Soft Touch , Louder Animal Group, Cabaret Voltaire, The Naughtiest Girl Was A Monitor, Furniture, Non/Smegma, The Gist, Dogma Cats, This Heat, Dayshift, Essential Logic, Methodishca Tunes, Ian Dury, Josef K, Orange Juice, Girls At Our Best, Delta 5, Jona Lewie; Jamming Charts; Gigs and Ligs - Another Pretty Face/TV 21, Buzzcocks/The Things; Letters; and brief bits of news on Louder Animal Group and Paul Weller. Superb stuff!
