That's an Anarchy sign innit Tee Hee giggle!....radical...or do I mean Ridicule?
Early Anarcho-punx with a shit name,and probably one of the few groups ever to have a member leave to become a sword smith !?
This cassette has a classic UK DIY sound, like it was recorded in a cardboard box using tin cans and string for microphones.
I am informed that they went on to be acclaimed as the Godfathers of Crust Punk, whatever that entails? Probably playing 'Punk' in unwashed clothing with no fixed abode I dare say.
No too sure what the feminist vegan Anarcho-punx would have had to say about a thirteen minute song entitled "Disco Slag", but they make up for it by having another song on the popular subject of rabies ,as well as a obligatory ditty about how the original Punks let us all down...ahhhhh.
Not too familiar with their other,later output, but this one's good.
Shit-fi with inaudible pubescent preaching with just the right amount of stupid to make it listenable.
"We're not Nihilists we're Anarchists!"
No idea what the band name means.....don't wanna know either so don't!....maybe its to get their future recordings towards the front of the soon to be swelling ranks of the "Anarcho-Punk" section in yer local disceterie but they split up several times only to come back to massive,three figures and more, festival crowds in Europe.....they'll watch anything over there.Especially after Brexit and No British bands can get a working Visa easily no more.However, i don't suppose bands like Amebix bother with such formalities.Them being Anarchists an' all?
It's ironic that both Brexit and Amebix both sound like some awful breakfast cereals designed to keep yourselves regular.Just listening to this tape would likely be enough to empty even the most constipated trustfund crusty hanging around the shit pit at many a peace convoy festival back in the day....hopefully before being beaten senseless by a British bobby at the Battle of Stone'enge.
