Product Details
Chaos UK's 1989 LP. This was the last release that had the Mower (vo.), Gabba (gu.), Chaos (b.), and Chuck (dr.) which had been the line up since 1984. The only exception was the Japanese tour in 1985 and "Just Mere Slaves" 12" when Chuck was denied a passport to Japan, and Ade from Lunatic Fringe was recruited as a stand in.

I've never thought this album was as good as their earlier work despite it having the 'classic' line up, but it still has a couple of ragers on it. It features a re-recorded version of the song "Rise From The Rubble" which was originally on the "Just Mere Slaves" 12". The tunes "World Stock Market," "No Tax!," and "Think" are also good, but i still think this falls short of their earlier recordings. This was where Chaos UK started to go in a more straight forward punk rock and less thrashy direction which they would continue on in through the '90s.

This is still a solid album that i'd recommend for any fan of the 1980s Chaos UK sound, but i would suggest picking up the first two 7"s ("Burning Britain" and "Loud, Political And Uncompromising") and first two LPs (self titled and "Short Sharp Shock") first. Still, a nicely done reissue coming from this well done Italian label.

Italian Import!
