With a couple of other people we put together a fanzine. It was called Street Fever. We had a very DIY philosophy. At the time in Adelaide the main import record store was called Modern Love Songs.
The guy who ran it was called Bo, and he and Stuart knew the printer at Flinders University, so Street Fever was printed on the same machine used to print Empire Times , the Flinders student paper.
