3 Mustaphas 3: Fez Fair!

Mark Sinker, New Musical Express, 10 September 1988

2005 note: Collapse of post-comm Balkans into internecine war hinted at, kinda. Well, only if you read WAY between the lines I think. Another submerged manifesto, for the kind of thing I wanted Wire to do. The 'Other Voices' section was invented purely to get a piece about Ut into NME (which, when it ran, wasn't very good). It was, like all narrowcasting, a fairly bad idea.

Total word count of piece: 1473
