They Wear Obscene T-Shirts

In this Jesus and Mary Chain interview in Smash Hits (March 14th, 1985) we learn, among other things, that 'Upside Down' cost a mere £172 to make and that Douglas Hart bemoans the fact that you "just can't get crisps and chips and things like that abroad."

Paul Haig : Justice

Short piece and micro-interview on Paul Haig about the release of his 'Justice' single on Les Disques de Crépuscule in 1983. Article by -later of Pet Shop Boys fame- Neil Tennant.

I think this is from Smash Hits but I'm not sure. Might well be Record Mirror or some other music weekly.

Just been informed (see comment below) that the clipping is from Record Mirror.

Thanks, Anonymous!
