Life Would Be Grim Without Humour Compilation.
Cassette release sold through Grim Humour fanzine. Compiled and edited by Richard Johnson of Forth Dimension Records between 1983 and 1993. It spanned 18 editions during this period and sometimes included flexidiscs, compilations (a cassette and an LP, respectively) or split 7″ records which themselves featured artists as diverse as Ausgang, Portion Control, Bushido, Shockheaded Peters, Hotalacio, Rake, Cindytalk and Richard Johnson’s own band, Splintered (band). The magazine itself covered underground music, films, art and literature reviews and featured Wire, The Fall, Killing Joke, Crass, Coil, Henry Rollins, Lydia Lunch, Front Line Assembly, Big Black, Swans, The Virgin Prunes, The Cure, Sonic Youth, Whitehouse, The Butthole Surfers and more besides. Following a gap of several years, it then transmogrified into another publication, Adverse Effect, which lasted for four printed editions between 2000 and 2005 and then became an online magazine which still exists and also houses Johnson’s Fourth Dimension Records imprint. At the moment, Johnson is also compiling a book devoted to some of the best features from Grim Humour. It is hoped it will be ready to publish in 2010.
