Cover of first Garbage issue, Aug/Sep 1991

Seminal Hamilton fanzine Garbage, costing only $2, survived only two issues in 1991. Written largely by Adam Hyde, issue 1 included articles on The Haunting, Two White Eyes, A Crown Of Wild Myrtles and Book of Martyrs. Issue 2 featured GIMBIMLYB, Frybrain and Watershed.

It was all put together using a typewriter, glue and photocopiers. One article (on Frybrain) was white text on a black background and had to be typed out by hand using typex (white-out correction paper) to type the white characters on black paper. That one article took took several days with many attempts to get right.
