Happy Easter! Too Late fanzine, issue 2 – Easter 1980

Easter 1980 & the second issue of Too Late hits the streets. Yet again 30p, no adverts and 16 pages. The handwriting is much better than issue 1, probably because I was less involved with this one. (too busy pursuing my music career)
too late issue 2 1979 cover -  Dundalk Fanzine

2 scans for you. The front cover (above) and a set of listings from the writing team of ‘reasons to be cheerful’, fave 45s & 33s & movies, hates (Sid Vicious clones!) & RIPs for the previous 12 months. ( I’ve recently wondered how obituaries will manage when Rip Torn dies!) I notice in the RIP section from the scan that NRG & Scheme & other Dundalk group Static Routines (who had a record released on Good Vibrations) had all split up by now! Even musical differences existed in 1979/80 Dundalk.
Also, let the inquest begin on some of those singles choices. Racey?
