No. 1, September 1981. Staple-bound self-wraps, 21 by 29.5 cm, [32] pp. incld. wraps, illus. Very good with only minor cover wear. An impressive first issue with an optimistic view of the new wave. “Kill nostalgia. Admire the view now we have reached the top of the Pistols’ thorny stockade, there is an exhilarating slide down to THE OTHER SIDE – a new age!” Features lengthy interviews with Jaz Joke (Coleman) of Killing Joke, Terry Hall of The Specials, poet Linton Kwesi Johnson, Lesley Woods from the Au Pairs on feminism and their debut album “Playing with a Different Sex,” and BBC Radio 1 disc jockey John Peel. Also includes an article on the history of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and news of the new “Strength Thru Oi” LP, used as a backdrop to discuss the British Movement using skinheads as their disposable stormtroopers. “What is needed in music is not raw aggression, brutish machismo, but a basic humanity, a compassion, even a tenderness. People like Black Uhuru, Dexys, Echo, THEY HAVE IT.”
