Liverpool's Electro Hippies formed in 1985 with the intention of combining influences from the best of the extreme hardcore/crust and metal scenes of the day and melding it into something all their own. After releasing one split EP in 1986 (which featured Jeff Walker, later of Carcass fame, on vocals), the band was in fine form by the summer of 1987, when they recorded tracks (included here) for independent U.K. label Peaceville Records' very first sampler. This year was arguably grindcore's peak year, with debuts being released by bands like Napalm Death and Unseen Terror. A raw aggression of pure hard/grindcore brilliance, played every bit as fast as any Napalm Death track and yet with a distinct melody that was the Electro Hippies' own. On November 30, 1987, the band entered Lion Studio in Leeds and in the course of two days recorded their debut LP for Peaceville "the Only Good Punk... Is a Dead One." The 20 tracks laid down were co-produced by Peaceville founder Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw, who himself had formerly served as drummer for U.K. punkers the Instigators and later, Sore Throat.
