Blag The Stash.
The response to Issue 5s inaugural Blag The Stash competition kept our panel of genuinely unqualified judges busy for hours. The five lucky winners were:
Major Matt Mason USA Im just so excited at winning. I cant wait to score my swag stash. I cant think too straight & its all trakMARXs fault. Rock & Roll.
Zach Mandeville (also US of A) The stuff is great. I listen to it a lot. It makes me feel good. Feeling good feels good, to me. (incidentally, Cindy, Zach is AKA The Boy Of Destiny & Eternal Fountain Of Knowledge no wonder he got all the fucking questions right!)
Buddy Dion (Rhyl) The Stuck Ups t-shirt was a bit small Im going to have to diet my fat arse some. The Crass CDs were brilliant. Ive painted a massive A on the roof of our cottage & annexed Anglesey in the name of Vegans Against Shrimp Potting.
John Beverly (Christchurch, NZ) Mate. Dead made up at winning, right enough. Ripper. The Blondie CDs are great, mate. I really rate the photo-copied rare punk 45 sleeves the best, though. Ive cut them all out & stuck them on my kitchen wall. Do you think I shouldve got them framed?
John Mellor (Somerset, UK) Yeah, can I get a message though? I just wanna say: lets have some more music, alright? Thanks for the 101ers LPs, by the way. Ill wear the trakMARX t-shirt for all my decorating assignments from now on.
How can you argue with that level of satisfaction? Blag The Stash is here to stay.
Anyway, onwards & upwards this months questions are here:
1/ Which Australian band eventually became The New Race?
2/ Which 60s drummer auditioned for his job sporting a dyed ginger suit, dyed blonde/ginger hair, jet-black eyebrows & proceeded to trash the kit (not his own) in the process?
3/ Who is producing The Libertines debut LP?
4/ What was the title of the debut LP by The Fall?
5/ The Solarflares feature the drummer of which Kentish outfit?.
