Trash City – Issue 7
TC-shirts! The picture on the TC-shirt has now been selected and produced. and I think it sums up the emos of TC fairly well: Nastassja Kinski and a blood-spattered chainsaw. Oh. and NK isn’t wearing anything. did I mention this? It’s tasteful. however. since it’s a back view with her looking over her shoulder. All in all, very nice and not something you could find offensive unless your sense of reality had been short-circuited. Unfortunately, the man in the T-shirt printers could have been who P.J.O’Rourke • was writing about when he said “People who worry themselves sick over sexism…can not he expected to have a sense of humour”. “That’s sexist. We’ve got a policy against that”. said the printer, and refused to print it. So much for civil liberties. I am now determined to make sure they got done, and now I know the text on it: “TRASH CITY – the shirt they tried to ban…”
This is TC7, an organ. probably a gall bladder. for the free expression of views, especially when the views are about Nastassja Kinski, films. books. comics, music. death, travel. TV or the problems caused by small-minded people who refuse to accept the validity of views other than their own. I still have a handful of TC6. our Japanese special. but hurry: the rest are gone, but ask as I occasionally run some off.

A strong pound means a hike in $-rates. £-rates will reflect new postage soon but for the moment, the sub. rates (min. 2 issues) are 60p/issue UK, $1.50 Europe, $3 elsewhere. A label on the envelope tells you the last one you’ll get + how much is left over after it. This is slitting my own throat and doesn’t even cover production costs let alone postage. but goes back to when I produced TC on the computer at work. Single issues are £1 ($2 $4) including postage – this just about breaks even. I sell copies to shops for 75p, so a £1.25 shop price seems fair. Cheques/PO’s to Jim McLennan. Contributions are welcome. and I reserve the right to publish correspondence unless specifically asked not to. Send everything to:
