City Fun

In the first of a series of extracts from the Manchester fanzine, City Fun, here's a news piece on the debut EP from 1978.  Thanks to Mike Noon at the Manchester District Music Archive for the scan.

THE DISTRACTIONS... 12" EP

"YOU'RE NOT GOING OUT DRESSED LIKE THAT", on Manchester's own TJM label seems to be taking off even better than expected.  It received rave reviews from Paul Morley in last week's NME, even reaching the exalted position of... "SINGLE OF THE WEEK".  We told you ages ago.  The band are currently busily engaged in more studio work, and also carefully considering various offers regarding future recording.  There was no definite comment on the various stories which have appeared recently concerning future contracts, but the consensus of opinion at CITY FUN is that they will receive an offer from a major company in the very near future.  For a band with a "SINGLE OF THE WEEK" - NME, and "DEMO SINGLE OF THE WEEK" - Sounds, the transition to "Hit Record of the Century" should be quite smooth.  The band, meanwhile, are committed to no external influences, and remain in control of their own affairs.
