Brilliantly chaotic one here for a kick-off. A big favourite. Sharp, succinct and witty stuff from Welwyn. Bits on Crass, Poison Girls, Rondos, Epileptics, Rubella Ballet; sniping at the Clash and a withering review of UK Decay/Pneumania. Still, UK Decay proved magnaminous enough, hosting as they did, in December 1979, a Cobalt Hate benefit gig featuring themselves, Crass and Poison Girls. For more see here.
