Heat #2 - An Irish view of Punk

Here's a great Irish fanzine from the summer of '77.  Heat was absolutely crammed with stuff, all hand written and not taking things too seriously.  It covers the Irish punk scene plus the English and US bands.. This issue has features on Irish bands the Vipers and the Radiators from Space, Johnny Moped, Generation X, a Ramones meet the Incredible Hulk comic book spoof, a review of the Ramones at the Roundhouse, a very brief interview with the Undertones plus various rants, reviews and other bits.  All good stuff and a fun read.. They kept Heat going till '79 and every issue I've seen is quality.  If you like this one let me know and I'll post some more.
