Get a 9-5 job, some evening and weekend work. Join V2. V2 are signed to T.J. Davidson- he manages them and pays their wages. He also has them rehearsing from early morning onwards. No doubt for V2 it's better than an 'ordinary Job'. But is it rock'n'roll?
T.J. Davidson. Sometimes described as a 'shark'. Other comments relating to him include 'Would you buy a used car from this man?' etc,.
EDITORIAL: 'City Fun' is printed and published by 'City Fun'. We want to make it clear that each article represents the view of the writer, only. If you want to write something, please do. Send it in as soon as possible. We reckon on printing as much as possible on anything of interest. Any editing that is carried out is done by Neil, Martin, Andy and J.C.
We are thinking of writing articles about recording studios and record labels in and around Manchester. Could they let us have their names and addresses please? as we want to be as coprehensive as possible.
Corrections:- Simmons Banshees article. It should not be 'buffy rain music' but should be Buffy st Marie.
City fun finance: the missing figures are:- 360 copies sold (definately), £36. Balance £17. We should publish more accurate accounts next time.
Thanks to:- J.C., Andy, Neil, Martin, Adrian, Acute P.N., Simon, Bernard, Godzilla, Nigel, Alan Alker, St Johns College Students Union, Community Action, MARC, RAR, Kelly's, The Factory, The Russel, The Venue, T.J.
