Notes The 12th ('dance') issue of Fast Forward, released in August 1982, is chockers with people who went on to have distinguished careers in music, and some who were already big names. There's an interview with Kim Salmon (with a live recording of the Scientists' hit 'Swampland'), and an interview with Colin Newman of Wire. There's a song by Brisbane's Tangled Shoelaces, who included future members of Wondrous Fair and now-composer Martin Mackerras. There's a song by classic post-punk Australian group Essendon Airport, who reformed during the noughties and have reissued material on the Chapter label. There are several examples of the explosion of musical styles that (re-)emerged during 1982 including rockabilly, latin / jazz / funk, Cure-alikes and Casios. Grace Jones and Bucks Fizz drop in to say hello. Great interviews include Denise Drysdale discussing her career as a professional go-go dancer in the 1960s, and a vox-pop with audience members at Sydney venue 'Stranded'.
