CRASS - Stations of the Crass 2LP
The second Crass album 'Stations Of The Crass' includes three sides of studio material and 17 live tracks from the Pied Ball, Islington from 1979. The studio material still sounds relevant both musically and politically. The guitars and bass play perfectly together, the former providing a sea of static noise for the latter to sift in. The drums utilize a snare, playing ironically militaristic beats to anti-establishment rants. Crass were and still are inspirational.
The album's name is a pun on Catholicism, as well as a reference to the graffiti campaign conducted by the band around the London Underground system (the cover depicts a wall at Bond Street that the band "decorated").
Remastered by Alex Gordon and Penny Rimbaud at Abbey Road Studios as close as possible to the sound of the original release “as it was in the beginning.”
