      Better off doing speeches!

      The effect that Crass had on the way that punks worldwide think today is definitely under-estimated much of the look as well as the way of thinking was heavily taken from this anarchist punk band. The band's 3rd album Penis Envy which helped mould the band's more serious, political and less matcho style which differed from their first 2 albums was released in 1981 on the band's own label Crass Records.

      The band features Eve Libertine (originally the band's first fan) and Joy De Vivre on vocals, the main issue I have with this is that I simply don't like their voices. Harsh, high and militant they certainly get their message across but are anything but fun or nice to listen to, I'm sure that's what the band were looking for but there are plenty of bands who have succeeded in getting political messages across (U.K. Subs, Bob Marley and even Carcass without sounding as unattached from sing-song than these two girls)

      The messages in the songs are at times interesting, often involving quite indepth stuff either in psychology or politics but at the end of the day, it's just no fun and the constant experimenting with different sounds makes it far too disjointed. If I was going to see a feminist political speech, it might be interesting but as far as dancing goes... well it doesn't!

      1. "Bata Motel"
      2. "Systematic Death"
      3. "Poison In A Pretty Pill"
      4. "What The F**k?"
      5. "Where Next Columbus?"
      6. "Berkertex Bribe"
      7. "Smother Love"
      8. "Health Surface"
      9. "Dry Weather"
      10. "Our Wedding"
