Remastered and reissued vinyl version of what should've been one of the first 10 records you ever bought. Comes with download coupon for the digital punks out there. Named as a reference to some ofFreud's ideas concerning sexuality, this release marked something of a departure from the somewhat macho, hardcore punk image that The Feeding of the 5000 & Stations of the Crass had given the group. Featuring more obviously complex musical arrangements, this release showcases exclusively female vocals provided by EVE LIBERTINE andJOY DE VIVRE. The album addressed feminist issues and once again attacked the institutions of "the system" such as marriage and sexual repression.

Ten Notes on a Summer's Day was Crass's final album under the Crass name. It was released in 1986 and consists of a vocal and instrumental version of the same tracks in an avant-garde musical style. Recorded at Southern Studios in the Winter of 1984 / Summer 1985. Penny Rimbaud says in the liner notes: "Just as throughout our seven years' existence as a punk band we had made concerted efforts to avoid specific political pigeonholing ('left-wing, right-wing, you can stuff the lot'), so, musically, we attempted to push the barriers, always avoiding the obvious. In one respect alone we were absolutely consistent; our inconsistency. If the essentially rowdy Feeding of the Five Thousand and Stations Of The Crass had established us as the thinking man's bovver band, so Penis Envy broke the mould as an almost lyrical, yet still very angry piece of rock'n'roll feminism. And just as at the very time that the BBC thought us safe enough to be given airplay, so we ploughed in with Christ, The Album, an uncompromisingly avant-garde noise album which in its own way went a long way in redefining rock'n'roll's limited parameters. Then, in much the same way as our fifth album, Yes Sir, I Will, owed more to free jazz than to rock, so Ten Notes On A Summer's Day nudged itself towards modern European atonality, and us completely out of the rock'n'roll arena (as testified to by dramatically reduced record sales). In this sense, Ten Notes On A Summer's Day truly was a swansong." The vinyl edition comes in a single sleeve with printed inner - bag/ insert. The CD comes in cardboard digipack type packaging.

Yes Sir, I Will was the fifth and penultimate album released in March 1983 by the anarcho-punk band, Crass. The album was essentially a bitter and virulent attack on then prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, and her government in the aftermath of the Falklands War and was set nearly wholly over a raging and an almost free-form improvised backing provided by the group's musicians. Many of the lyrics from this album are extracted from Penny Rimbaud's extended poem 'Rocky Eyed'. The original vinyl release contained no banding between songs, thus presenting the contents as one long piece split over both sides, making it the longest punk song ever recorded (the CD release was tracked by individual song). Rimbaud summarised the album in an interview to Radio Free France: "The boundaries increasingly ceased to have any relevance - prior to the Falklands War, one naively believed that there were separations between 'this' and 'that' and that if you dealt with 'this' then you could do 'that'... like songs - each song had its own little separate thing to deal with and Yes Sir, I Will is a statement about the fact that there isn't any separation - that it's all one and the same thing, that there is no single cause or single idea - there's no-one else to blame but yourself. That you can't say, "Well let's now concentrate on the Northern Ireland problem", "let's now concentrate on the problem of sexual relationships"... you can't do that - everything now is one major problem and that problem stems from yourself." Both the CD and Vinyl editions feature a fold-out poster sleeve that is identical to the original pressings.
