Sunday The 7th #2, 1981

Following Bubs' departure Sunday The 7th became largely a sole effort by Martin "Cobby" Cobb, though Bubs does contribute...and Paul does too, er, so that’s clear enough then. Anyroad, there’s no doubting the quality of this 32 page bristling blighter! Featuring: profiles and interviews with Vice Squad, Toxic Power, The End (Matt McLeod, Trev A. Beckett, Ann Dee Martian, Zoff and Gary) + a plug for Sunday The 7th house band, Primal Chaos. Other interviews with: Chelsea’s, Gene October (an interesting comment from Gene on being asked about the frequent line-up changes could have come straight from M.E. Smith’s mouth, uncannily so really); and a decent 2 part interview with UK Subs’, Steve Roberts and Nicky Garratt, the latter proving particularly illuminating. Elsewhere there’s a delve into the Tribal Warfare issue; a rather astute look at TV, the press and advertising in Don't Believe the Media Lies; 6 Minute War warns about cruise missiles, and a review of The War Game in Banned by the BBC. Opinions has contributions from Bubs, Richard and Michelle with poetry and points of view about war and work + Ann Dee Fucking Martian holds fourth on The Anarchist Dilemma (and just in case a shitstorm kicks up about certain elements therein, just remember, I DIDN'T WRITE IT, OK?!). There are no record or tape reviews but Cobby does offer a snappy little rationale for eschewing such fripperies – though there are a couple of live reviews of UK Subs/Chelsea/Stiffs/Anti Pasti, and Vice Squad/Anti-Establishment + a neb at a few fanzines, some collage and Discharge lyrics. Good stuff!
