Crisis "Holocaust Hymns" (Pre Death In June) cd release
- 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
Crisis came into existence in the late '70s amidst the British
hardcore punk movement and was often featured in Rock Against Racism
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.
