rub me out

On the venerable Crass Records label, The Cravats were a British band who were around from 1977-1982. Penny Rimbaud of Crass describes the group as "an aural assault which, although showing some kinship with the then current punk modes, was closer in its intelligence to experimental freeform jazz, which I have always loved, and German 'industrialist' avant garde." A better description could not be given of the group's weird inheritance of many different modes of noise-making, from records containing entirely found sounds to the post-punk political skronk of "Rub Me Out," featured below. Love this band, and encourage all to seek out The Land of the Giants, probably their best recording.

The Cravats- Rub Me Out

Tomorrow, something a bit more breezy.
