Trees and Flowers #2, 1980

Is the future going to be a Nightmare?
This was a great fanzine - always fairly choc full of decent interviews, articles and interviews. Steve Toxin was at the helm with contributions in this issue from Gary Blatch, Kes, Ian Newton, Joe Bridge, Aggro Moore, and Vengeance. Just the one interview in #2 - that's with the Nuclear Socketts. Along with reviews of The Clash and Sex Pistols films (Rude Boy / The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle) there are shed loads of vinyl reviews: Crisis - Hymns of Faith, UK Subs - Brand New Age, Nuclear Socketts, Crass / Poison Girls - Bloody Revolutions / Persons Unknown, Siouxsie & the Banshees - Christine, Sham 69 - Tell the Children, Sex Pistols - Stepping Stone, Discharge - Realities of War, Angelic Upstarts - We Gotta Get Out of this Place, The Plasmatics - Butcher Baby, Dead Kennedy's - Holiday in Cambodia, Slaughter & the Dogs - I'm the One, The Cockney Rejects - Greatest Hits Vol 1, Stiff Little Fingers - Nobody's Heroes, and Toyah - The Blue Meaning. Just a couple of gig to report: UK Subs / Liquid Stone, and Slaughter / Cockney Rejects / Crisis / Manufactured Romance. There are 2 brief articles on Stranger Still, and The Prams + a handful of fanzine review and a couple of letters. I've got a fair pile of T&Fs to work through - good stuff the lot of 'em.
