Product description

Product Description

Number six in a series of re-releases of Crass' now classical albums remastered and with additional related material. This edition includes the original Crass album plus additional tracks featuring Eve Libertine and comes with a specially designed fold-out poster and an illustrated booklet containing lyrics and contextual notes. Ten Notes on a Summer's Day The Swansong. Recorded at Southern Studios Winter 1984 Summer 1985. From the liner notes by Penny Rimbaud: "Just as throughout our seven years' existence as a punk band we had made concerted efforts to avoid specific political pigeonholing ('left wing, right wing, you can stuff the lot'), so, musically, we attempted to push the barriers, always avoiding the obvious. In one respect alone we were absolutely consistent; our inconsistency. If the essentially rowdy Feeding of the Five Thousand and Stations Of The Crass had established us as the thinking man's bovver band, so Penis Envy broke the mould as an almost lyrical, yet still very angry piece of rock 'n'roll feminism. And just as at the very time that the BBC thought us safe enough to be given airplay, so we ploughed in with Christ The Album, an uncompromisingly avant-garde noise album which in its own way went a long way in redefining rock'n'roll's limited parameters. Then, in much the same way as our fifth album, Yes Sir, I Will, owed more to free jazz than to rock, so Ten Notes On A Summer's Day nudged itself towards modern European atonality, and us completely out of the rock'n'roll arena (as testified to by dramatically reduced record sales). In this sense, Ten Notes On A Summer's Day truly was a swansong.
