Volume 7: October 1981

The seventh volume of Fast Forward features interviews with England's John Lydon - at that time singer with Public Image Limited - and Australia's Laughing Clowns, with a live recording of their song 'Collapse Board'. There's music from a diverse range of acts, and a hello from the Village People. A piece on the 'Audio Arts' cassette label focuses on the distribution of non-musical sound recordings.
