I’m not familiar with External Menace, but the internet tells me that they came out during the second wave of British punk. The recording quality is really rough, but that is usually the case for any kind of “early demos” kind of thing. The music itself is a great example of what was going on in the U.K. at the time. Side one has a couple of mid-tempo punk rock tunes while the flip has more of a UK82 sound going on. Nice piece of history.
