In January 1982 Ian Bone published Fuck Off, his 'fanatical magazine for Wales'. Aimed at 'Welsh arsonists, anarchists, mutants, republicans, punks, prostitutes, rioters, hippies,' it was a conscious attempt to draw together some of Wales' more exotic non-conformist elements.
This is how Ian described it to me in an email:
"I have a residual affection for Fuck Off among the glittering pantheon of mags I've produced. At the time I was in touch with the hippie Mutants from west Wales, the Welsh Republicans, and a lot of the Class Whores who were originally from Swansea... so a mag bringing them all together seemed natural. Issue 2 - never produced - was to have a big feature on the Silent Twins (June and Jennifer Gibbons) who petrol-bombed their way around Haverfordwest.
It was also great reading Fuck Off on the Tube where you could be reading the back page and hold a big 'fuck off' up to the person opposite."
*Special thanks to Ian for the additional background information on Fuck Off and for allowing me to use the above magazine cover. Cheers!
