Insanely great single with two tracks taken off the sophomore album. Hard-hitting hard-as-nails core. Outstanding lyrics too. The kind you expect from ex-AOF, DAG NASTY, AGNOSTIC FRONT & GRIN members. This 7" even made it into the UK indie charts.

This band had a full-length tape out which is niot listed here. Side a was kinda like studio while side B was from their practice pad. It had a poster with it and the tape was even better than their 7". Any hints are welcome where to geth that one.

You are right. The template was included in the Singles compilation and NOT in the Live Kicks album. My bad.

Q: How many different colors exist? I did have a marbled-violet pressing once and now i do have a somewhat blue-ish color (#899). Anyone else?

Was it a RSD release or a regular reissue? Wish they'd used analogue masters for remastering btw.

The song ABA is a mish-mash of David Bowie's "Andy Warhol" and THE DAMNED's "Teenage Dream". ABA stands for Anita Bryant's Army.

A guitar-less trio from Iceland. A stripped-down version of PIL if you want. Bollex Camera is a great gloomy song. Very cool.

This is the most rad shit i have heard in years from this - to me- totally unknown outfit. A power-trio with the capital P. Great vocals, too.

Musically, this album is very good. Metal-typed Rock without much schtick. Until the vocals start. The it sounds like a male vocalist is trying to sound female. Good gawd...!

Despite the title track, there are a lot of filler on the album. Why would anyone repeat BRICKLAYER when you've got the best version released already? Their weakest studio album.

What a great band this defunct group was. Especially their 1984 debut is chockful of songs that kick you through the room. If you like DEAD KENNEDYS mixed with BIRTHDAY PARTY, then you'll love this. Great vocalist, too.

Explosive power-trio out of Ipswich, Mass. One of a kind and hard-as-core. Sadly 2/3 of this group is dead. Guitarist/vocalist/principle songwriter Ken Chambers is alive and kicking.

It means 5 years 2 1984. This catalogue number says this album was released in 1979. Because it is five years to 1984.
