Viva La' Resistance
The first issue of Viva la' Resistance from Preston appeared in February 1977. The fanzine featured such bands as The Clash, The Heartbreakers, and The Jam, and headlines such as "No Ban For New Wave at Rainbow". Eighteen-year-old editor Roy describes how his zine came into existance; " The fanzine just happened one boring Sunday afternoon. The name...sums up our resistance against apathy and the state of things today..."
The cover proclaims " And What A Riot! Now You've Bought It!"
