This staple bound zine was almost certainly Sheffield’s longest-running fanzine. Editor, Martin Russian was also a founder member of Sheffield band They Must Be Russians, one of the groups who appeared on the semi-legendary “Hicks From The Sticks” compilation (although he’d left long before then). Martin Russian began NMX (short for “New Musical Excess”) in March 1978 and was also a founder member of Sheffield band They Must Be Russians, who got their name from the text of an irate letter printed in a British tabloid newspaper.
