As preparations for the upcoming “exhibition, gigs & talks celebrating seminal label & shop Small Wonder” continue apace, organisers have released a video clip from the BBC Oxford Roadshow featuring an ‘at home’ interview with Poison Girls from 1982.
“You have to start off by taking a grasp of yourself. The process that we’re all brought up in tends to murder the imagination and that’s a good place to start… reclaim your imagination and reclaim yourself” Vi Subversa
Oxford Roadshow visit Poison Girls (Vi Subversa, Richard Famous & Lance D’Boyle) and hear how they retain control of every element of the group from design, packaging and their live shows.
Poison Girls released “Piano Lessons/Closed shop” and the Hex EP on #SmallWonderRecords in 1979 (WEENY 3 & WEENY 4) in conjuction with their own label X-N-Trix Records.
The Small Wonder exhibition opens this September in Hoe Street, Walthamstow along with talks and gigs.

Details of the events (scheduled to take place in September 2016) will be shared through the Small Wonder Records – exhibition, gig and talks Facebook page. The organisers are also keen for input from supporters of the label and the shop:
Have you got any Small Wonder memorabilia, posters, tickets, cuttings or records we could loan for the duration of the exhibition? We’d also like to hear your memories of visiting Small Wonder, Pete, Mari, Colin and the music they released and sold. The Small Wonder Records exhibition is part of Punk Waltham Forest – run and organised by Beatroots Creative.
