CRISIS - Hymns Of Faith

Along with The Clash and Crass, CRISIS brought a healthy dose of politics to the 'punk scene', they were coming from a strong Socialist perspective. Their debut single No Town Hall was a benefit for a group campaigning to stop the building of a new town hall in the London borough of Southwark, where homes for all were needed not a new town hall. The band were staunch anti-racists, as their 2nd single White Youth testified. The 7 tracks on their posthumous release (by 1980 the band had gone their separate ways forming Death In June and joining Theatre Of Hate.) Hymns Of Faith: On T.V/Laughin'/Back In The USSR/Afraid/Frustration/Red Brigades/Kanada Kommando// deal lyrically with subjects such as television, violence, totalitarian Russia and European terrorist organisations. Musically the buzzsaw guitar and single note guitar lines carry the tune and the drums and bass provide a heavy rhythm a classic piece of post-punk political passion. This download is ripped from a 25 year old cassette tape recording of the original vinyl. It is a must have. You know the score, it's just a.............away: http://s19.quicksharing.com/v/5747733/CRISIS_Hymns_Of_Faith.rar.html NEW LINK IN RE-POSTS/REQUESTS SECTION OVER TO YER LEFT AND SCROLL DOWN!

Another fine post! I've not listened to this for 20 odd years. Just for info Kanada Kommando is missing off the end - I ain't complaining though, these six songs are gonna be blasting out all day! Thanks.

Glad you all liked this. I'm sure Kanada Kommando's on there. 'He works to be free' We all make mistakes Harry, but we were young then. My original vinyl copy of HOF was either swapped, stolen or sold, can't remember
