Prestatyn based fanzine from late 70’s, edited by Mark ‘Muss’ Jones (then manager of The Vaj & now involved with Nwales Newspapers. Title comes from a reference to Prestatyn’s Cross Foxes Hotel, & mixed local stuff with existential poetry, feminist stuff & included the quote “____ ____ is forming a new band which he says will be Joy Division influenced – with any luck the bastard’ll hang himself”. Typical photocopied zine of the period with an off-putting puke green cover that lasted no more than 3 issues up to Feb81
review by Jill Roberts for Live at The Foxes fanzine
If you are one of those people who have thought, quite correctly for a longtime, that Rhyl has no music scene, don’t despair – despite North Wales’ deep rooted acute musical apathy, some new groups are alive & reasonably well. Over the last few months a staggering awareness of the lack of any musical scene has grown & encouragingly there seems to be plenty of enthusiasm to set this right. New bands have felt safe to announce their formation & push for recognition. The climax of this activity (mostly by The Vaj) was the gig on Sat 17th at the North Wales Inn.
