No More of That #1, 1981

It's written in their rules
To put missiles before hospitals
A smashing little fanzine is this No More of That. Assembled by Bobby Gray in Airdrie, it's a somewhat slim affair - just the 12 pages but enough is packed in to be of interest. Interviews with Crass, Six Minute War (quite a lengthy effort by 6MW standards - it may be the longest interview I've seen with those DIY wunderkids) and The L Plates. There's a wee feature on the band End Result, Kelly Woz Nowhere focuses on a TV programme entitled, Kelly Woz Here, and Oi the Farce has a critical look at Garry Bushell's brainchild. Overall it's a very entertaining little number. I'm rather desperately trying to get me mitts on issue 2 of NMoT so if any soul out there can help me out that'd be ace…the desolate sound of tumbleweed

I wait for an email from you.

Thanks Si - another one I haven't seen since the early 1980's...

They weren't too many SMW interviews at the time (I remember about 4 or 5). Although, funnily enough, there was a band in Coventry called Delayed Reaction who were essentially a SMW covers band! I wish I still had their rehearsal tape demo...

Sorry, I haven't got issue 2 ;)

All the best,

Nic

Most welcome, Nic.

This is one that always stood out for me primarly on account of the SMW interview. There's a few fanzines going up here that I didn't really pay much attention to at the time - with some it's like I'm reading them for the first time - with others that's the case as I still collect - there seems to be a never ending backlog of titles out there - such a delight.

Must keep an eye for that Delayed Reaction tape - it sounds well intruiging - I'llgive you a shout if I spot it.

All the best
