A haunting introduction to "industrial" music. One of the greatest...period!

I bought this in 1986, and have always loved it. Yesterday, I watched Walter Hill's The Driver, and discovered that TUFoF' Corridor of Cells borrows/samples Michael Small's opening credits theme. Has anyone noticed it?

Amazing Industrial music from the political band Test Dept from south east London ,the music is really an Industrial treasure.

Musical Instruments - Synthesizers. Metals .crushing bricks. percussion instruments. Hammers. Bagpipes.

The music contains Vocal samples and samples of Radio broadcasting . Sound effect of Gloomy choir .

The superb vocal performance and the Variety of musical instruments create mesmerizing dark atmosphere.

My beloved Test Dept album.
This cd was my first acquaintance with the band.

LP cover unfolds to create a large (3 feet across, 4 feet from top to bottom) cross.
"Fuckhead" is still an amazing feat of sound to me... bagpipes and a strident protest rant over minimalistic loops and a butt-shaking hardcore beat (accented by what seems to be a cowbell getting the crap beat out of it). Almost makes you forget that this is supposed to be "industrial" music.
