10 Commandments fanzine - 1980
'In Paisley there's a flourishing scene
based around the local Rock Against
Racism organisation which a guy called
Tommy Kayes originated about 18 months
ago, forming Paisley RAR with a couple of
local bands. The RAR bands now number
around 12, of whom the
Mental Errors and
Fegs are the most recommended.

Relatively speaking there's hardly any
racist or fascist element in Scotland and
RAR operates primarily as a gig stimulus
and scene organiser. Gigs are regular and
usually draw between 60-100 people
though police and council opposition has
made venues unstable.

So far Paisley's attracted the outside
world's attention solely via their 'Sound Of
Alternative Paisley' EP on the
Groucho-Marxist label, though another EP
the anti-police 'Ha Ha Funny Police' EP
dedicated to local inspector Kirk will be out
shortly. Paisley seems a well wry
proposition and I'll be back there to cover
the scene in proper depth soon. Promise
