Essex is now known as the home of the fake tan and vacuous vain morons, thanks to the godawful scripted reality TV show 'The Only Way is Essex' or 'Towie' on UK TV.
But remarkably didn't Dr Feelgood come from round there? Eddie and the Hot Rods, Ian Dury, Stripey Zebras, and,as Joey Essex would say, 'Reems' ,of lesser lights, like Cold War.
On this home recorded tape they achieve a watered down Killing Joke brand of Post-Punk,after the Joke were three albums in to a very influential career by '82. The Anarcho-punk stylings of their earlier sound have thankfully disappeared as they try hard to be trendy. Retrospectively its not bad,but Killing Joke it certainly ain't...not even up to the standard of other joke-a-likes 1919 or Red Beat..... 'Reem'!
