OLD SKOOL CUT 'N' PASTE.
Here's a couple of scans from an old fanzine. Posting these as an accompany mentnt to some recent posts over at PUNKS ON POSTCARDS and SOUNDS FAIR, who seem to have covered The Fits recordings as have CACTUS MOUTH INFORMER and PHOENIX HAIRPINS with The Membranes. Both bands came from Blackpool and fine examples of the different directions punk took in the 80's. The Rox fanzine was put together by John Robb from The Membranes. Number 12 had these articles in and was the Charles an Di Royal Wedding souvenir Edition. John still rants and raves with the excellent Gold Blade and has written several good music books including: The 90's What The Fuck Was That All About, and the brilliant Punk Rock An Oral History If you aint heard The Fits or The Membranes, hit the links, check out the blogs and dowlnload. If you don't like 'em stick 'em in yer reycycle Bin. Simple what have you got to lose. You can never have enough music and remember what Slade or was it Wizard said......"yer granny used to tell ya, the old songs are the best."
