Format: LP

Very limited reissue of this legendary Broken Flag compilation originally released on cassette in 1983: this reissue was originally intended to coincide with the Never Say When Broken Flag event that took place in London in May of 2012 but it’s only now seeing the light of day. This is one of the most radical and profoundly a-musical documents of Broken Flag’s uniquely primitive and ferociously raw DIY aesthetic. It features exclusive tracks from Ramleh. The New Blockaders. Sir Ashleigh Grove. Vortex Campaign. Citipati and Depilate Corps. The Sir Ashleigh Grove track (a New Blockaders ‘satellite’) is particularly astounding. a long two/three note track of scouring minimalist debris and fucked-up martial beatbox that sounds like buckled metal played by Sun Ra. The New Blockaders track is a beautiful example of their ferocious early DIY electro-acoustic style with that shed at the bottom of the garden appeal that makes the early recordings so unique while working in the same area as Ferial Confine. The Ramleh track is a totally hysterical and barely comprehensible live ‘power electronics’ assault while Depilate Corps turn in an eerie feedback choral that’s heady with implied threat. A phenomenal set. one of the best early Industrial/noise compilations and a solid spin from start to finish. highly recommended!
