City Fun No. 19 w/ Joy Division Flyer Review

Manchester, UK: City Fun c/o New Hormones, 1980. 4to, two unbound, folded sheets, offset printed in black and white. With three flyers laid in, each photocopied on different colors of paper stock.

An early issue of the legendary Manchester zine, when it was still running out of the New Hormones office. This issue is notable for including a two-sided flyer of gig reviews, one side of which is devoted to a full page review by Godzilla entitled A Pilgrim's Progress which is a lengthy review of Joy Division's February 7th, 1980 gig with Iggy Pop, Psychedelic Furs, and A Certain Ratio. The reviewer didn't like the "strings" of the keyboard part of "Your Love etc" (Love Will Tear Us Apart?)

Also included is a two-sided flyer, photocopied in yellow paper, which lists upcoming shows at The Poly Socials, the Manchester Poly Union, advertising, among other shows, The Cramps. The third flyer is a gig guide listing upcoming gigs in Manchester at various venues.
