For the first time ever, the three Crisis singles are officially
re-released on Vinyl along with demos from 77 and 78 and a simply
stunning sounding live set from Norway in 1979.  The debut 7" from 1978
on Action Group Records, 'No Town Hall'  features three stonewall punk
classics. The next two singles 'UK79' and 'Alienation' make up the four
tracks recorded for a John Peel Session in 1978. The lyrics are a
product of the time against a backdrop of street fights with the
National Front, violence at gigs, institutional racism within the police
force, class division, industrial strife, sexual repression… Upon
reflection not much has really changed in the last 35 years! Also
included are demo tracks from 1977 and 1978 which are raw and basic punk
just as you would expect. They have never been officially released on
vinyl before. Sides Three and Four features a live set recorded when
Crisis played Norway in 1979 which features all of the material that
later turned up on ‘Hymns Of Faith’. The sound quality of the recording
is so good it would pass as a studio recording.

The record comes
housed in a tip on heavyweight sleeve with detailed liner notes,
reviews, interviews, and a few unseen group photos. The sleeve picture
taken in Kiev in 2012 couldn't be more relevant, capturing the Zeitgeist
- which was part of what Punk was all about in the first place.
