Crass
Penis Envy

Penis Envy was the third album by legendary anarcho-punks Crass. It was a move away from their early macho punk sound and the subject matter of feminist issues was reflected in the fact that the album had exclusively female vocals. It became notorious by the fact that it was involved in a seizure of copies from Manchester record shops and the band were charged under the Obcene Publications Act. The band eventually won under appeal but it cost them financially and the seeds were sown for their eventual dispansion.

Crass
Ten Notes On A Summers Day

Always uncompromising, Crass rounded off their brief career with Ten Notes on a Summers Day, an album which consists of both vocal and instrumental versions of the same tracks. The fact that these songs were performed in a series of avant garde styles rather than their usual thump punk sound didn't endear the album to their fanbase at the time but what a way to sign off.

Crass
Christ - The Album

Now even Crass get the luxury boxset treatment. However there's a catch as this was released as a box set first time round  - always ahead of their time this lot. Christ- The Album was their fourth album originally released in 1982 and it contained one disc of new material and a further album containing a live show. The fact that it took a year to record had a profound effect on the band as they realised that such a gestation period would render their political statements dated. Further recordings were made quickly with a more back to basics approach but this is the one they sweated over.

Crass
Yes Sir I Will

The Crass re-issue program continues with Yes Sir I Will. It was recorded in the wake of the Falklands war and was a sustained attack on then prime minister Margaret Thatcher and her government. The fact that the tracks were not separated by grooves made the album sound like one long anarcho-punk blast without pause. Once again totally uncompromising but a vital historical document.

Stations Of The Crass

Stations Of The Crass was the second album by anarchist punk band Crass. It was originally released in 1979. It features three sides of studio recordings and one side which was recorded live in an Islington pub (I wonder if Jeremy Corbyn was there?). The album’s title is not only a pun on Stations Of The Cross, but also the name of their campaign to daub the London underground in graffiti. On Crass Records.

Crass
The Feeding Of The 5000

These days Steve Ignorant tours the country with Slice Of Life -  an acoustic guitar/piano based band talk-singing, and whilst his lyrics are still political it’s a far cry from what exploded out of him in 1978. The Feeding Of The 5000 was the first album by Crass, a noisy, sweary, political punk band. 18 songs in 31 minutes. Proper punk, that. LP on Crass Records.
