<< we got another small handful for those who missed it first time around! >>

F*cking excellent piece of Post-Punk, Avant-garde, Jazz, Noise - whatever you call it - from Blurt!

Their first ever LP from 1982, officially reissued across 80mins of cassette - along with a whole heap of their first singles - via Moscow's Post Materialisation Music DIY operation, and sent to us here in a package amongst a whole pile of good stuff from, and for, the ages.

Centred around Ted Milton's Alto Sax & vocals, with Jake Milton on Drums and a whole heap of interchanging band members, Blurt capture that vivacious essence of the early 80's in Britain... Punk happened, Jazz infiltrated long ago, the dub virus spreads, industrial & noise attitude became a thing, all as the extreme side of capitalism rears it's head and causes a whole lot of dismay, grief and of a hell of a lot of quality counter-creativity.
From the glaring, shark-eyed opener 'My Mother Was A Friend Of An Enemy Of The People' to the Buzzcocks or Red Zebra style punk-jazz of 'The Fish Needs A Bike' through to the incredible stripped rhythms in that jazz-dub excursion 'Trees' - seriously - throw all your money here now, even if just for this one! -
and on to more psychedelic free jazz & punk dub excursions, at times even reminding of 23 Skidoo or perhaps the later works by Red Snapper.

We only have a handful of these unfortunately, and you know what -
we don't reeeeally even want to see them go to be honest!

Edition of 200, served with risoprint inlay and silk-screened cassette.
