... your heart out ... for dancers

The fourth issue, with Michelle Mae and Ian on the cover, was going to be subtitled '... and so forth'. But that seemed too obvious. The alternative seemed preferable as there was a bit of a dance theme, and it was an affectionate nod and a wink to Kent Records. Was there ever a term as dumb as 'dance music' in the way it came to be used in the late '80s? Well, yes there was, but you get the point.

The point is we all dance in our way, in different places, to different things. And this issue featured some of the things we love to dance to the most. Jorge Ben, Georgia Anne Muldrow, the Mo-Dettes, Alice Clark and Catherine Ribeiro. There were detailed looks at the punk/disco interface, and Y Records, with all the tangle of connections that suggests. And lots of new sounds from Samia Farah, Fay Hallam/Trinty, and the new wave of beats and mischief makers like Ahu/Dolly, Paul White and Bullion. Ah, yes, have to confess got the MySpace link wrong for Bullion, so to make amends go there now to catch new sounds.

The back cover featured some very excited words about the performance of End Of Our Love by Chicca & Intrigo, so just in case you're sceptical ...
