To Hell With Poverty
To Hell With Poverty was a fanzine based in Coventry, England, of which four issues were produced between 1984-86. In order to confuse future archivists, and to make better use of a rather nice photo of John Wayne, issue 4 was retitled 'The Hell With Poverty'. A fifth issue, which would have seen a return to its original name, was prepared but not printed. Other items produced from the same stable include a postcard featuring the original photomontage used on the cover of issue 1, and a tape cassette of demo tracks by the Furious Apples, a local Coventry group featured in issue 1.
