      Crisis "Holocaust Hymns" Apop013, Cri007

      Crisis' entire remastered discography from 1978-1980, complete with
      a 12 page booklet featuring exclusive photos from Douglas P.'s
      private archives.

      Crisis came into existence in the late '70s amidst the British
      hardcore punk movement and was often featured in Rock Against Racism
      live showcases.
      These political affiliations earned them Comparisons to a more
      focussed and truly politicised Clash and other such similarly minded
      bands, despite Crisis' decidedly non-peacenik attitude which beget
      more thrashing off the stage than on. And however much they would
      contextualize their relation with working-class rights, they bore
      only slight facsimile to the Oi! working-class sound. Rather, they
      would take the same energy that came from youthful, raw anger, but
      lock it down tight with restrained lyrical phrasing and strict
      rhythms. Resulting in a somewhat harsh poeticism of violent urgency
      held on leash that had more in common with WARSAW or GANG OF FOUR.

      Members include Douglas P. and Tony Wakeford who would later expand
      upon some of the Crisis material for their dark, neo-folk group
      DEATH IN JUNE. Wakeford later went on to form SOL INVICTUS, and two
      other band mates, Luke Rendall and Lester Jones, would later find
      involvement in THEATRE OF HATE and SEX GANG CHILDREN, respectively.

      The cd can be ordered for $17 postage paid in The U.S.
      If in a foreign land the price is $19 postage paid.
