VOX – Irish fanzine (1980-1983)

“Vox which started in March ’80 became a significant cultural publication of the era combining punk, electronic and progressive music, underground poets, performance artists and fringe entities. Flicking through its pages is like looking through a directory of all things new wave and underground covering that period of time, with so many topics and features that it is hard to attempt a summary. Dave Clifford, its editor, was himself a printer and this is reflected in its sophisticated, clean layouts, printed pages and two-colour cover as well as high quality writing and journalism.”
– From ‘Loserdom‘, an article on early Irish fanzines:

The final issue (#15) of Vox was published in 1983. Several of the ‘zines contained articles about the Virgin Prunes, some of which we’re making available here as PDF downloads.
