Abridged 0 – 3: Romance and Assassination

Abridged 0 – 3: Romance and Assassination was our third issue. We were getting into our stride thematically and weren’t afraid to wear our influences on our sleeves. We borrowed the title from  a line in a song called ‘Fix’ by that popular beat combo, The Sisters of Mercy. The cover we always thought was quite remarkable and very prescient of what would occur a few years later in the Republic of Ireland particularly. There is some very interesting material in the issue though we shudder at the production values and looking back our seemingly erratic placing of the artwork. However it’s still a strong issue and we’re very fond of it. It’s a scan so the quality could be better and the file is rather large but we present it here for your enjoyment: Abridged 0 – 3: Romance and Assassination
