No, it wasn't the final issue. Read the boxed announcement in issue above which states that LC would start coming out in magazine format. One issue (at least) did come out in that format

Ah, OK - it seems to be the final issue in the Sparrow's Nest collection so I wasn't sure if they ever managed to produce the magazine format. How long did the LCG last for after this?

Not much longer , most members went into Big Flame.
Oh, and Sparrows Nest should have that magazine issue, I 'm sure I donated my copy.

No 8 contains the last special supplement of the ORA/AWA/LCG current: The Peasantry in Action., written if I remember correctly, by Keith Nathan. Billy Williams, as I've said before was one of my nom de plumes, Terry Sheen was an alias for Anthony Zurbrugg who has written a couple of books on anarchism.

Ah, and that Big Flame article led me to the Anarchist Commuism in Britain 1870-1991 one, from which I learn that the "other side" of the AWA became the ACA and put out yet another paper, Bread & Roses, which the Sparrow's Nest have at least a few copies of, so that'll keep me busy in quarantine for a little bit longer.
