Fast Forward

Volume 11: May 1982

The 11th volume of Fast Forward had a "sex" theme which is manifest in interviews with sex workers Collette and Chantelle and with feminist author Beatrice Faust. There are interviews and songs by Australian groups such as the Triffids, Pel Mel, Wildlife Documentaries (featuring ex-Saint Ivor Hay), as well as US band The Cramps. There's a sendup of the then-booming "new romantic" trend. And there is something of a Queensland theme, with the Go-Betweens talking about their forthcoming first album, a song by Birds of Tin, and material about that state's government of the day.
