The Mental ‎– "Mental Breakdown" (Bluurg Tapes ‎– BLUURG 3) 1981

The Mental were the very teenage punk group of Dick Lucas, future leader of The Subhumans (UK),and founder of 'Bluurg Tapes'.
Its a kind of fuzzy/shouty Anarcho-punk hybrid of Crass and Zounds.The hard rural sound of  Melksham in the punk infested greenfields of Wiltshire. Which I suppose is the traditional homeland of Anarcho-punk.....y'know, Stone'Enge and all that? 
The cassette is a compilation of two early Demo's and the vinyl EP they released in 1980; before Dick joined forces with 'The Stupid Humans' to become The Subhumans.
Not a very politically right-on group name though wazzit Dick?
