Backs Against the Wall

Backs Against the Wall was a skinhead fanzine that came out of Cardiff in the mid-80s. It ran to five issues and was put together by Dudley Somers in Roath. The fanzine was notable at the time for taking a strong anti-fascist stance. Somers was very much a fan of reggae and ska as well as the more prevalent Oi music of the era. His fanzine reflected his broad tastes with features on music, books and skinhead fashions. You can read pdfs of Backs Against the Wall here.
