We Are Dynamite! Northern Carnival 1978


Buzzcocks, X-O-Dus (Exodus), Paul Morley
Alexandra Park
22nd July 1978

The NME review of the Northern Carnival Against the Nazis, featuring a funny comment from Buzzcocks manager Richard Boon.

Paul Morley writes:

The marchers begin to arrive at the park at about 2.30pm. At the back of the stage area there are hassles. Buzzcocks, who took two weeks' deliberation before deciding to appear, don't want the responsibility of going on last - nor do they wish to go on first before all the marchers arrive. About 5,000 people are already there, occupying the best vantage points. the marchers are clearly going to take at least an hour to arrive. Heated discussion. Exasperation. Richard Boon, Buzzcocks appealing manager, is clearly dismayed at the mess. The organisation is a shambles, he moans.

"They know a lot about propaganda but nothing about rock 'n' roll. If the people who are organising this are the revolution, then I'm emigrating."
