Rough Justice #2, 1981

Here's a a slim but worthwhile fanzine put together in Coventry by Pete Samson with contributions from Pete Every. Quite a bit of interest here with interviews: Monachy, Partizans, and Attrition; live reviews of Attrition/Idol-Eyes/Delayed Reaction, The Urge/Partizans, The Butts, and Human Cabbages/Famous 5/Relevant POS/ Delayed Reaction; a short profile of The Partizans; 7"s reviews of Theatre of Hate, Anti Pasti, SLF, Sly Dunbar, UK Decay, Ruts DC, Department s, New Order, and Eyeless in Gaza; From Brussells with Love comp (Brian Eno, Jean Moreau, John Foxx, Bill Nelson, The Durrutti Column, Martin Hannett, and A Certain Ratio); a bundle of cassette reviews - Undead Hatred, Dron Area, 21 Guns, The Wild Boys; a note on The Clash at Agora Balllroom bootleg; a few film reviews, a breif fanzine round-up and a write up of The Urge and The Hawks at Pebble Mill.

Long time ee advisor, Nicholas Bullen has offered these nuggets about this fanzine:

This is great - It's written by a guy who was at my school, and whose younger brother was in the band Delayed Reaction who are mentioned in the fanzine (and sounded completely like Six Minute War, by whom they were influenced a great deal)...I went to quite a few of the gigs reviewed in here...The "More 'Zines" section features reviews of two fanzines I made in 1980 and 1981 (when I was 12 years old): Antisocial and Out of Vogue (named after the song by the American band The Middle Class)...The "Who Cares?" section also features a review of a tape by Undead Hatred, which was the band which I played in before we changed our name to Napalm Death...

...many thanks to Nic for dropping by and sharing his wonderful memories.

By the way, this fanzine is written by Pete Samson: Pete Every just contributed the odd bit...
