CRISIS- Holocaust Hyms

Crisis was a British punk rock band formed in 1977. Their distinctly edgy, controversial and far left form of punk rock, was in line with other anarcho bands like, Crass, Poison Girls, Chumbawamba, Dirt, The Ex.
In early 1979, the band underwent a major change in personnel, with Phrazer, the original lead singer, and Insect Robin The Cleaner, the original drummer, being replaced by Dexter (a longtime fan and roadie) and Luke Rendall. After performing their last show, supporting Magazine and Bauhaus in their hometown of Guildford in Surrey on 10 May 1980 the band decided to break up.

Douglas Pearce and Tony Wakeford went on to form Death In June in 1981. Drummer Luke Rendall joined Theatre of Hate, and lead guitarist Lester Jones formed Carcrash International.[1] In 2005, the Crisis discography was released on a single CD entitled Holocaust Hymns, which you have here.

original punk

original 1978 kick butt political punk. great original sound, this band never made it big because no one liked what they were saying about raciism,but they were great live and in the studio. buy it, if not just fot PC 1984, for everything else.

This is where it all started...

If late 70's punk rock is your cup of tea then you might find this record interesting. Though not as good as Sham or The Clash, Crisis were a band who really got their boots dirty. They did not have the luxeries that the larger punk bands had at the time and lived by their wits. For the late 70's Punk Rock completist this is a great record to have. If you are a Death in June fan it is also a must have because Douglas Pierce and Tony Wakeford both were members of this group. This band really hits the left-wing politics. They were involved in the Rock Against Racism thing going on in the U.K. at the time. According to Douglas Pierce the RAR was not all it was cracked up to be and had a tendency to burn the bands. They became disillusioned by the left (I don't blame 'em) and started the far better and more creative Death in June shortly thereafter. Crisis broke up in 1980 after a final gig with Magazine and Bauhaus.

This record compiles the singles "No Town Hall", "UK78/ White Youth", and "Alienation". It also features the full length "Hymns of Faith" as well as some demos. These records are all listed in the discography section on Death in June's official site but you can get 'em all on one record, here, and be done with it. After all, this where it all started. Heilige!

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Bridging the gap between Faith no More, Killing Joke and Slayer, New York art-metal troupe Crisis is fronted by charismatic and eccentric vocalist Karyn Crisis, whose schizophrenic vocal stylings (including everything from melodic singing to death-grunts to impulsive squeaks and squawks) simply defied description. Formed in the early 90's, Crisis was also a multi-cultural stew, throwing Pakistani guitarist Afzaal Nasiruddeen, Taiwanese bassist Gia Chuan Wang and American drummer Fred Waring into...
