Fanzines

IMG_3258

West Norfolk bands werent featured much in the National Music Press - or in the London/Manchester based fanzines -  in the 80's but we did have a handful of enthusiasts making sure our scene had its own publications.

Tox (Steve Harnett) had the most successful zine, Trees & Flowers, one whole issue and some snippets of other issues can be found on the Fanzine page as are examples of Bushes and Weeds (Kevin Tordoff) plus mentions of Final Straw from Norwich.

Obsession / The Slugs

The Slugs were the best band in Kings Lynn at the time, after they changed their name to Obsession they still were.
Members:

Kevin (Bubs) Howard
Mik Ball
Mark Rawlinson

At one time their line up included Phil Wilson (June Brides) who had also been a member of Winston (during their 'Smoking Beagles' period. I recall seeing a storming gig from Phil Wilson era Obsession supporting Infa Riot in Norf Landan innit.
