I’m very grateful to Ed Butler who provided these scans for BrandNewRetro. I had never heard of this magazine until now. This is issue 4 and Ed reckons it may have lasted just a little longer. As you can see from the editorial Smiley Bolger was involved. Stevie Bolger wrote the article below on the Dublin Suedeheads.

  1. Oh lord it brings me back – especially phrases like ‘heads’ and ‘bread’. I bought my first set of drums off Smiley for £25 – it must have been around 1970. I don’t remember this magazine. Re Smiley, I remember once carrying our gear into Osibisa (opposite the Gaiety) as Smiley was coming out. I asked him to hold the door open and he unforgettably said “hey man, I’m not into opening doors”. Thanks again MAN! A funny guy.

  2. Hey Doug, I have a good story about Smiley Bolger when we gigged in Slatteries but I’ll have to tell you next time we meet for pints, as I could be sued. Ted

  3. What a cracking little mag it was – well written with good layout

    1. I hope you get a chance to scan the rest of the magazine sometime – copies of Gun are as rare as hens’ teeth

  4. Hi, I met Stevie Bolger around 1967ish. I arrived in Dublin aged 15 with my friend and Stevie and his mate (sorry, I’ve forgotten his name) took us on a tour of Dublin and generally looked after us. I would really like to know what Stevie is doing now and to be remembered to him. Marilyn North Wales
