TRASH CITY – Issue 1
April 1989

‘Trash City’ is a ‘zine devoted to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, exploitation in entertainment, beauty, death, splatter movies, computer games, Inter-rail holidays, UFO’s, general weirdness and anything else the editors see fit to print. The style is best described as ‘conversational’ and ‘informal’ – the emphasis is very much on the words, since our method of production makes art tricky and photos almost impossible, save the special embarrassing-to-read-on-the-train back cover!

It is most easily available from me, and it is a good deal cheaper to subscribe, at least if things stay as they are at the moment ; you’ll only pay the postage, plus an almost nominal fee. If you bought this from a shop, you’ll have had to pay more for it – understandably, shop-keepers aren’t keen to stock things there’s no profit in!. If you want to be sent future issues, send us 40p per issue in cheques/p.o./ cash ( made payable to Jim McLennan where appropriate ) along with your name and address – we’ll then send them to you until your money runs out. This offer expires and goes to heaven whenever we decide.

Articles, artwork,etc are also extremely welcome – get in touch or see Issue 0

Editor, publisher, general chief of staff:

* NOTE * There will be a change of address before the next issue, but at the moment I don’t know what it will be! Letters to the old one will be forwarded (but NOT if sent to “Trash City”, ONLY if to “Jim McLennan”!!) – apologies in advance for any resulting delay in my replies.

  • Texts: in alphabetical order; Peter Evans, Jim McLennan, David Oliver, Per Porter. Steve Welburn and Simon Wood.
  • Artwork: Frank C. Rhochs (from clip art by Jim, Per and Steve Welburn).
  • Back Pic: “Nastassja’s taking her clothes off again!” – this rare archive pic shows Nastassja Kinski auditioning for the role of Trash in ‘Return of the Living Dead‘…

The views expressed in this ‘zine are not necessarily those of the editor or publisher, and may well be an attempt to achieve notoriety through being seized by the Customs, condemned by a Conservative MP or banned by a leading newsagent.
