The Archived Copies – Rip It Up 4

This may be the last one I bother to upload, because the rest were all in A5 format and this is fiddly to scan, that is my excuse anyway.  This was the final issue of Rip It Up, dating I suppose from about 1990.  We had by this time begun to get rather lazy, hence the completely fabricated interviews with both Poison Idea and the Hard Ons, one of which was allegedly set in the future.  I think that the boredom with the medium and the increasing self-righteousness of the ‘scene’ as it was back then had made us become rather rebellious, and this was more an attempt to poke fun and try to shock people.  The ‘alternative’ scene had, in our opinion, become conservative and cliched, which was a contradiction in terms.
