Following on from my last post (SPEAKEASY #95), here's the very first issue of the zine, from ten years earlier (showing just how far it had come).
By Richard Ashford -1979
Cover by Colin Stanford, and some early artwork by Dave Hornsby, who went on to be the designer of later issues.
This was a stencil zine, printed on a duplicator, using coloured paper. I'm not sure how it was kept over the years, but by the time it got to me it was in a pretty poor condition. I've cleaned it up as much as I'm able to, but the first few pages are still a bit of a struggle to read. I might not have put it up, but I think it's an important zine, and as I think there were only about 50 copies printed, I'm probably unlikely to get hold of one in better nick.
