This then prompted some rummaging around in dusty cardboard boxes for now yellowed copies of the troublesome little bugger that had briefly wrested control of the weekly music press away from the corporates and, uncoincidentally, provoked a nervous breakdown for yrs. trly. And reading them again filled me with an unexpected pride and the urge to record the genesis of what actually wasn't such a bad little rag.
