Penis Envy and Christ – The Album are both lovely.
Going with our lord and savior.

will need a relisten but iirc: Penis Envy by an inch or two

Most likely Penis Envy but there's so much good stuff.

how is Yes Sir, I Will?

It's.. Interesting.

Penis Envy is actually really good.

Stations, I voted for, is the one.

I had Feeding and Christ for ever, Christ has its moments but the whole grand package didn't work and they were better being swift and reactive.

I did get the cd reissues, I did notice that Steve didn't write that much after the first one, and Penny took over the writing to a greater extent, which is ironic..

Penis Envy. They're all great, but it's the one I listen to most.

Penis Envy and The Feeding of the 5000 are the ones I come back to the most

Did you guys know about this?

Basically, all the stems from the "Feeding of the 5000" album for you to remix etc, send it to them, and they put it on the forthcoming album.

Closing date is Aug 1st. Apparently they started this late last year.

Mark G, Friday, 26 June 2020 21:18 (two weeks ago) link

Apologies for being obtuse but where do you download the stems?

everything, Friday, 26 June 2020 21:25 (two weeks ago) link

I just saw that and I'm not really sure how I feel about it

That's a recipe for anarchy.

By the way, I saw Penny Rimbaud 'playing' in some absolutely abysmal improv thing earlier this year (or maybe last year).

they released a single already:

when I first saw I was like WTAF fuck off, but the idea isn't terrible, I suppose

I don't have a problem with Steve Ignorant playing Crass songs live, at all, and I may go and see him do it at some point, just don't call it Crass, which he doesn't

I think it's funny, experimental grime/dub/blah blah producers tearing their hair out trying to re-edit Crass onto a strict tempo map in their cracked versions of Fruity Loops Studio. I bet they mostly just use the vocals.

They do say "Do what you will, put it out if you like as long as you tell us" so I guess it's OK. And it's been on a while so I guess it's cool

Mark G, Friday, 26 June 2020 21:52 (two weeks ago) link

(I guess I could realise my ambition to record "Do you owe me a tenner?")

Mark G, Friday, 26 June 2020 21:54 (two weeks ago) link

If enough ppl cared we could do an ILX comp, but I doubt it.

Maresn3st, Friday, 26 June 2020 22:09 (two weeks ago) link

do they owe us an FPing

Ha.

I doubt it also.

Mark G, Friday, 26 June 2020 23:19 (two weeks ago) link

Can anybody get these files?

I feel like I am doing something wrong..
