TP 9
TOTP 9 June - August 1975
The last hurrah for our worst printer and the only issue of Trouser Press not to contain any record reviews, this one fairly well typifies our early editorial focus — with articles on British rockers with roots in the '60s, progresso (Gong), pub rock (a Brinsley Schwarz profile that didn't get cover linage) and the fun fringe of Americans like Sparks. Most startling quote of the issue, by Francis Rossi of Status Quo in reply to a humble guitarist's innocent request for advice on keeping the left pinkie in shape to play all those Chuck Berry boogie chords: "Shove it in your rectum."
