A Parade Of Dusty Old S*M*A*S*H Memorabilia

The mighty S*M*A*S*H were by far the finest group this piss poor country produced during the selfish, impotent 90s. A band apart – a banned that got virtually self-banned – by their dogged refusal to play the game. S*M*A*S*H were far too real (surreal) for a nation being spoon-fed Blurgh, Swayed & Okaysis by those belligerent ‘tastemakers’ at IPC (Idiotic Pseudo Commentators? – Infantile Public-school Cunts?).

Ed Borrie (vocals & guitar), Salv Alessi (bass & vocals) & Rob Haigh (drums) walked it like they talked it – they had no need to hide behind a Union Jack & shout “xenophobia” – they were too busy writing songs that were basically a hit list of Tory MPs (“(I Want To Kill) Somebody”). S*M*A*S*H had their own fanzine, “Petal Buzz” - & a range of home-made t-shirts emblazoned with legends such as “Enrages” & “Smalltown Git”.

Between 1992 & 1996 S*M*A*S*H were not only the greatest Punk Rock group in Great Britain – they were also the greatest Punk Rock group in the world – so, come with us now, as we stroll through the memorabilia cupboard that time forgot - & remember: Everything’s for sale, baby – mutato76@aol.com

“Most governments, religions, institutions, weapons of war & general stupid ideas were made by a man . . . not me . . . I was made by a woman!”
S*M*A*S*H – “Lady Love Your Cunt” (Borrie)
