I bought this album first on vinyl in about 1983; two LPs have now been combined for the CD & most Zounds songs are contained here. I've just bought this on CD again, as I cannot grow old(er) without it, just as I could not have grown up the same without it. It changed the way I saw and see the world.
The band was popular in anarcho-punk circles in the UK scene in the early 80's, although the music is too melodic to be considered punk. The drummer, Josef Porter, later became the drummer for the mythical anarcho (Crass) band, The Mob, and even later, formed Blythe Power, as drummer / singer.
The lyrics and songs are rhythmical and very thought provoking. I want my kids to listen to this. I cannot recommend it too highly. If you are anti-globalisation, you'll love it. If you ever feel alienated by the modern world, have a listen.
