There was a time when music mattered, when politics mattered and when youth movement mattered, Flux stood along side Crass in the political arena fighting against war, vivisection, meat, religion, capitalism,boredom etc.
They sound as fresh now as then, the politics may have changed but the causes havent. Buy it, if only to view the artwork.
This is what people did before the onslaught of mass media overload.

This is one of the greatest,rawest,in your face anarcho-political albums of all times.It combines Crass-liketopics-in a little less emphatical way -with corrosive hardcore punk,full of guitar feedback and shouting ,characteristic of this style.There are,nonetheless,some twisted melodic linesalong,which gives this band their unique and peculiar sound.I really can't reccomend this highly enough,and if youcan put up with some less than perfect sound,¨Live Statement¨features all of these songs at a live performance in Nottingham,versions being even rawer,especially the singing.Bear in mind,though,Strive...has a rather uneven tonal quality to it,so an equalizer is mandatory to unleash the astonishingly authoritative drumming delivered by thedrummer,it does'nt get better than this,mind you.

The debut album and ep by FOPI - what more do you need to know - the oldies amongst us will love it or hate it depending if we were punks or poseurs - I loved it then and still do even now that middle age is disappearing in my rear view mirror. New punks if you like Propagandhi and others of that ilk this might be the old skool record that convinces you punk did not begin and end with Green Day.

Perhaps not a record to play with your first cup of tea of the day, Flux's first album is nevertheless a tour de force of the first wave of punk - one of the glorious last gasps of the period.

Having said that, be warned that Flux were purists who, if anything, made a giant leap for the punk genre into hardcore. The disarming yet captivating feature of their music is in the combination of catchy & clever songwriting with a merciless onslaught of drowning guitars that will either leave you floored or force you to exit the room.

In a way, this album can be compared to Husker Du's "New Day Rising," where a distinct melodic sensibility is matched with a mudslide of distortion, where two seemingly incompatible approaches collide to create a truly new experience. The style is a statement in itself, never mind the fact that Flux engage topics such as the nuclear energy in their own uncompromising ways (which may be blunt but never banal). Add to this a backdrop of anarchist working class attitudes and we have one of the few genuinely revolutionary albums of Punk that doesn't lose credibility with the passing of years.

Anybody in search of artistic position over pose, both in form and content, should see this as one of the spikiest thorns in the crown of Punk.
