The origins of Deviation Street go way way back to the evening of 6th June 1977.

…… and  a Rock Against Racism gig featuring The Adverts, Penetration, local band Harry Hack and The Big G and one other band from Manchester called Warsaw ,who would later go under the namde Joy Division which  inspired  3 Bored  teenagers to start a Fanzine .   The  name of the zine was Deviation Street  a  nod to a track by counter culture  figure Mick Farren and his band The Deviants .  Like all good zines  Deviation Street lasted only a few issues . However in  2017 It was resurected intially as an online blog (with the Approval of  3 Original Founders ) as a  Blog .
