Intro 20 - August 2005Welcome to Issue 20 of trakMARX our 4th anniversary issue - & what a birthday bumper bouquet we have for your edification this issue. We are proud, once again, to welcome a raft of birthday contributors to the party:
Richard Hell - who sums up what trakMARX means to him in a touching & heartfelt birthday message.
Brian Young (Rudi/Sabrejets) who points out the ups & downs of contractual obligation.
Ben “Seymour Bybuss” Browton (The Shapes) who guides us through the contact sheets that illustrate his art.
Lemmy Caution (Black Time) who expounds on his love of The Mekons - & in particular their long-forgotten debut LP.
Kris Needs who re-ignites his love of The Stooges via 7000 words of sterling prose - & rediscovers the NYC vibe of Certain General.
John Robb who delivers another exciting extract from his packed Gold Blade tour diary.
John Walters who returns from the grave to continue his war of words against John Peel.
Martin Percival who appraises the Ramones latest DVD & reports from the front line with the Rezillos.
Tyler Durden who watches The Great R’N’R Swindle & then writes about it for us.
Suburban Kid who digs about a bit in his attic.
Jean Encoule who fucks about a bit, does bugger all really - & then takes all the credit for it.
With more than your fair share of the usual crap we bring you The Stooges, The Velvets To The Voidoids, Joe Strummer biographies, Johnny Green’s new book, sexmachina, The Prefects - & all the usual news, reviews & fucked up views.
What More Do You Expect For Fuck All?
