Schwartz’s first issue as editor after NYR’s creator Alan Betrock left the mag. The “UK Today” special issue featuring the Clash on the cover, a great image of Joe Strummer on the back cover, and a well-illustrated four-page article on the Clash. Also included are articles on the X-Ray Spex, The Boys, Bob Geldof, Tom Robinson, “British Bands – A to Z,” UK rockabilly, Red Star Records, TVT, Roky Erikson, a photo spread of Mirielle Cervenka (a “New York underground personality with extraordinary style,” owner of the jewelry store Junk, and manager of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks), and interviews with David Johansen, Mark Perry of Alternative TV, Ian Dury, and Howard Devoto of the Buzzcocks (by Jon Savage). There are also op-eds, record reviews, show reviews (including the Jam), scene and band reports, and photo spreads by Anna Sui, Marcia Resnick, and Shahn Kermani. A serious attempt at music journalism mixed with an annoying affinity for fashion.
