"Systematic Death" by Crass
Much as I love the records (and I do love these records), sometimes I think the endurance of Punk has less to do with the music than the culture that surrounds that music. Take this band, Crass. These guys were not exactly the best musicians in the Anarcho-Punk scene, but if you look at Punk as a cultural movement, Crass might well have been one of the most important Punk bands of all time: They helped establish the DIY ethic by running their own record label, they put Pay No More Than labels on their records to keep costs low, they formed a commune and lived together, they played free shows and all-ages shows, and they were relentlessly outspoken.
This is their third album, Penis Envy. It’s Crass’s take on feminism, with Eve Libertine and Joy De Vivre singing songs about women’s issues. Given that our lawmakers seems to be trying to drag us back into the 40’s (didn’t we settle that whole birth control debate decades ago?), I expect to be playing this record until November.
