Volume 10: March 1982

The 10th volume of Fast Forward - the first of 1982 - continued the tradition of combining local and international interviews and music. This issue features Australian bands Mental As Anything, Plays With Marionettes, Fabulous Marquises, and the Birthday Party, as well as internationals Laurie Anderson and the Clash. Other highlights include an interview with the founders of the M-Squared label, and a very early version of Sydney band Upside-Down House under the name "With a Lie". There's a send-up of heavy metal and AC-DC reflecting the anti-rock attitude of the time.
