Slash volume two number six (295x383mm)
Hey, no, don’t worry — I did one previous issue of Slash, and I’m doing this one, and then I’m not doing any more. And the reason I’m doing this one is that I had forgotten that I had bought the other issue, so I then had two.
So let’s just have a quick flip through this magazine.
The readers have chimed in with their top ten singles and… Bob Marley won!? OK, and then The Misfits and D.O.A., that’s more what I expected… and Scritti Politti? It’s an eclectic list.
The local shit is pretty amusing…
Heh heh. Eraserhead midnight movie.
Oh, wow — an interview with Robin Crutchfield from DNA (after he’d broken up the band he started with Arto Lindsay and Ikue Mori)… and he’s saying that New York is over now; it’s just masturbatory art rock now.
But unlike most of the people involved with No New York, he’s not down on Brian Eno.
And then we get a short story? With illustrations by Gary Panter.
A really fun interview with the Controllers… OK, I was just going to have a quick peek here, but I’m ending up reading most of the articles. Man, this was a good music magazine.
Er is that… I think it is? As a colour centrefold? Wow.
Heh. Panter reviews Eskimo by The Residents.
And then there’s a page of Jimbo.
What can I say? Is this the greatest music mag ever or is it the greatest music mag ever?
