Distant Echo (Fanzine)

Distant Echo Issue 11

Variety is the spice of life and in DE it abounds. Reggae is covered in the reviews, which makes a change in 'zines. Alan Rider's Attrition/Legendary Pink Dots European tour diary is very novel - seems like never a dull momento. Outstanding Richard Edwardes (Cool Notes) poem. Baz Stead rips into Simple Minds at Hammersmith. Lots of fanzine/record/tape/gig reviews. Clash and Kwesi Johnson amongst the live reviews. Home-taping piece - record companies lashed, and quite rightly, too - their greed knows no bounds. Beeb slagged. Letters featured - to complete a cornucopia of what a 'zine should be. It's unpretentious, but doesn't make you feel like a Sun reader.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985
