Messthetics # 107 - Diy And Indie Post-punk 1977-82: London Vol. 3Messthetics
***Messthetics returns to London—mostly to a handful of Tube-stops along the Central and Northern Lines. Volume 107 also includes a special 7-band, 6-page feature on the legendary Dining Out label. Rough-edged new wave wonders, scrappy DIY punk, ear-boggling home experiments, and the usual quota of accidental pop from fifth-form teens, art-school grads and committed hippies. With ex-members of SPITFIRE BOYS, TAX EXILES and FLYING LIZARDS; others went on to WEEKEND, ALIEN SEX FIEND, A CERTAIN RATIO, 400 BLOWS, and other notables. Messthetics #107 features obscure vinyl sides and unreleased material from DISCO ZOMBIES, DEMON PREACHER, JELLY BABIES, SIX MINUTE WAR, STEPPING TALK, OCCULT CHEMISTRY, THE PATTERNS, 49 AMERICANS, AVOCADOS, METHODISHCA TUNE, JANGLETTES, STOLEN POWER FLAGS, STEPPES, INSEX, MILKMEN, DESIGN FOR LIVING, TWILIGHT ZONERS, and CLUB TANGO.
