Here is a special treat for fans of The Beat! I recently came across a rare copy of the band's fan club newsletter -- The Noise In This World -- from May 1981. The newsletter is chock full of fantastic information, articles about the band, interviews with the band members and some incredibly priceless pictures and serves as a fantastic companion to Malu Halasa's long out-of-print and impossible to find book about the band "The Beat: Twist & Crawl."
The Noise In This World (taken from the name of the song on I Just Can't Stop It) was produced, edited and neatly handwritten by a close friend of the band named Marilyn Hebrides, and her editorial perspective, punk rock cut and paste design style, comments and insights about her friends who had suddenly become pop stars makes for some very entertaining reading. You can read the entire edition below.
