I said previously I’d have the rest of Vortex up by the end of 2020, no worries. This proved incorrect.
But! Brad Lambert sent me the scans of issues 4 to 6 afresh! And scans of Vortex #4 are up for your delight now!
This issue (May–June 1987): Palisades, Scientists, The Cult, Sparklers, Reels, New Order, Matt Johnson/The The, Errol H. Tout, The Clash (1982), and live and record reviews.
#5 and #6 will follow before the end of time — on the Party Fears World Service page.
And ’80s Australian indie rock fans will be delighted to hear that Brad is also scanning his old copies of B-Side.
Still in search of The Harvey and FreakZine … and any of the many other Perth zines of the era.
