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.

10/10 Planetnob Customer review, 16th April 2019
If I didn't already have a copy of the original release (and the 7" of 'Reality Asylum' originally 'excised' from the release of the 12") I'd be all over this like rash.
It's a seminal work. Angry, political and hardcore noisy. Fantastic guitar sounds, hard hitting lyrics and the bass line for 'Securicor' is a classic. This has got to be one of the greatest post '76 - '77, first flush of punk, punk records and if you haven't already been shouting along to it for decades you need to buy it now!
