FLUX OF PINK INDIANS: The Fucking Cunts Treat Us Like Pricks/ Taking a Liberty: CD

Eighteen tracks from this legendary Crass-affiliated band. The TFCTULP LP and the Taking Liberty 7” were originally released in 1983 and 1984 on Spiderleg Records. Here you get both without acquiring a scratched up original for an exorbitant price, but you might have already guessed that obvious fact from the title. I don’t know if this is a defect or it was intended, but all the songs are on one track. That sure takes away the convenience of it being on CD. It’s like having a cassette. You have to fast forward but you cannot skip tracks. At least with vinyl, you can manually lift the needle and move it past songs you don’t want to listen to. I can’t say I’m the most knowledgeable fan. I do have the Strive to Survive… LP. Wasn’t too into the whole Crass thing. Liked the ideology, but could pass on the music. I still find it hard to listen to after twenty years. If you got the patch on your clothing and never listened to the band before, go get this. Someone will eventually call you on it.
