Artefact

Letter from Geoff Travis of Rough Trade, after Mick Middles sent a copy of Ghast Up 1 down to the old shop on Kensington Park Road in W11 (before that area was yuppified in the film Notting Hill). The letter was written on the reverse of a flyer for the Stranglers playing at the Roxy Club in Covent Garden.

In an article on punk in the Observer Colour Supplement around that time, it listed Ghast Up as an example of the names being used by the current crop of punk fanzines. I am certain that happened because the journalist concerned did their research by looking over the fanzine section in Rough Trade.
