CRASS - "FEEDING OF THE 5000 (THE SECOND SITTING)" LP
Feeding Of The 5000 is the debut album by Crass, recorded 29th October 1978, and released later that year. At the time, it was seen as utterly revolutionary due to its extreme sound, consistent profanities, and anarchist ideology.
The album helped to re-initiate the Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament, and this anti-war motive can be especially noticed in the track "They've Got A Bomb" which features a period of silence midway through. Crass said this was to stop all of the dancing and energy when they performed live, and would allow the audience to reflect upon the potential of Nuclear War.
The album was named Feeding Of The 5000 due to it being the minimum number of vinyl the band could get pressed, and, in drummer Penny Rimbaud's words "4900 more than we thought we'd sell".
The album, on single black vinyl, has been remastered by Alex Gordon and Penny Rimbaud at Abbey Road Studios as close as possible to the sound of the original release “as it was in the beginning”.
