I think it was Tich that introduced me to Trevor Bolton and his partner Barry. They had offices in Hastings at Silverhill and Claremont. I worked on a few projects with them. Anyone know if Trevor is still around? The magazines were sold in The Disc Jockey. However a number of times the lyrics were wrong. They paid for the rights to reproduce them but had to work out the lyrics themselves by stopping and starting the records to work out the words. I remember when Soft Cell hit big, WH Smith wanted them to produce a special magazine, however the photos that came through from Soft Cell’s management were too obscene for Smith’s to accept it. They also went on and produced a Top Of The Pops magazine.
