Ripped & Torn #14, 1978

Watch Tony D. squirm as the crawling toad says he likes the Buzcocks after all...
 
Apologies, I've no time to adequately blurb this one up. Suffice to say it's a Tony D. product so quality is assured. Just get stuck in for fantastically entertaining gubbins on Patti Smith, The Angelic Upstarts, Albertos Los Trios, and Swindle. At the movies with - yes, you guessed…Eraserhead! Trash Rock Lives by Jeremy Gluck. Excellent stuff on the Antz. Live reviews of The Slits/The Doll, The Members, Chelsea/The Fall/Snivelling Shits, The Skids/The Zones, and Punishment of Luxury/Leyton Buzzards. The Life & Times of Patrik Fitzgerald by Tony D. Vinyl reviews of Johhny Thunders, Mickey Jupp, The Skids, Julie & Gordon, Keith Armstrong, Raped, Controllers, Stiff Little Fingers, The Nips, Steve Treatment, Demon Preacher, Chelsea, Adam & the Ants, Skooshny, Buzzcocks, David Bowie, The Ramones, Blondie, The Rich Kids, Devo, Alternative TV/Here & Now, Wayne County & the Electric Chairs, Wilko Johnson & the Solid Senders, Dr. Feelgood, and Chrome + lots more to boot. Top Flight!
