Aftermath #3, 1980

Here's another excellent issue of Bobby C. and Tony M's Aftermath to get the New Year rolling for ee. Featuring: interviews with Industrial Muzik, Wasted Youth (there's quite a keen focus on WY with various references throughout + publicity shots of the band); live reviews of The Nips, The Mysterons/The Insex/Disco Zombies, and Athletico Spizz 80/The Scars. It's sad to see the generally dismissive appraisal of the T.V prog, Something Else - I thought the show was really quite good. There's an extended review of The Fall's, Dragnet, 2 pages dedicated to a by and large favourable review of The Clash's, London Calling from Bobby (marred somewhat by a decidedly bitchy counter-editorial). Also, Throbbing Gristle's, 20 Jazz Funk Greats gets the extended review treatment whilst elsewhere there are shorter reviews of Delta 5, 9 Below Zero, Mo-Dettes, The Piranhas, Nurse With Wound and Furious Baton Charge, The Opposition (The New Underground) is a brief peak at independent labels. Not forgetting the neat little fanzine round-up.

Thanks Si - great stuff!

Classic Tony M layout as always...

I wonder if the "D.Quantick" in the Furious baton Charge tape review is the writer and humourist David Quantick?

All the best,

Nic

Hey Nic, thanks for this.

I wasn't sure either so I did a little search and found the following tweet from DQ:

really?I was in the Anti Golfers Association “@quantick: I have just remembered I once was in a bedroom band called Furious Baton Charge.”

All the best
