Artefact

The listed clip is from page 4, Bombsite No 1, fanzine distributed around Liverpool and Manchester during June 1977.
The commentary includes a review of the "Slaughter and the Dogs" debut single, "Cranked Up Really High". It was backed by "The Bitch". Neither song was included on their debut album, Do It Dog Style, when released a year later.
Bombsite No 1 was a pretty raw fanzine, but it does includes some good stuff for people who want to read about punk rock events during that era.

The letter referenced at the end of the commentary was from Rob Gretton who later became the manager of Joy Division and New Order. He was also a partner in Factory Records, proprietor of the Rob's Records label and a co-founder along with Tony Wilson of The Haçienda nightclub

Rob contributed £200 to co-finance this Slaughter and the Dogs' single.
