    NEW FREE CRASS REMIXES ALBUM:

    "Feeding of the 5000" was the 12" EP (more like an album) that kicked off the whole worldwide anarcho-punk scene in 1978, which in turn fed into protest movements around the world...and still does. I bought it shortly after it came out, and it had a profound effect on my life that will continue to my grave (despite my misgivings about some of their ideas/influences/output over the years).

    During the covid lockdowns, I had one of my remixes ("What A Shame (GHOST DOG's Shameless Jungle Mix)") chosen from among 100s of submissions for "Normal Never Was - Revelations", the 40-track CRASS - "Feeding of the 5000" remixes on-line album/double CD, chosen by Penny Rimbaud and Steve Ignorant of Crass themselves, aided by Ben of One Little Independent Records.

    However, being that I had so much time on my hands, and Crass had given permission for us to release our own stuff, I didn't just stop at the one track...I remixed the whole album...and this is the result. Most of these tracks made their way onto Crass' Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages before they stopped uploading the bewildering array of new submissions...they've mostly been re-mastered since then, though (including my version of "What A Shame", which is bassier on this album).

    I've waited some time to release this; partly so I could help promote "Normal Never Was" first, and partly because an old friend from my days singing in the anarcho-punk band Hex in the early-mid 80s, wanted to release this on his punk label...that hasn't materialised as yet (I won't mention names without his permission, and I apologise to him for my impatience. Hopefully a double CD will still happen at some point). Also, there was a hold-up in finding out what Bandcamp would allow in terms of charity donations. They insist all charity albums are on separate accounts to the artists' main accounts, which I didn't want to do...thus, this album's free, but I strongly urge you to donate to a charity. The proceeds from "Normal Never Was" go to Refuge, so that would be one appropriate option...or how about Sunderland & Hartlepool Soup Kitchen, which the aforementioned friend is involved with...or Hyde Park Unity Day, Cloth Cat and Oblong in Leeds, all of whom I've had some involvement with over the years?!

    My apologies to Gee Vaucher if she doesn't like my modifications to FOTFT's original cover art...there's a photo of the c.18 year old me on there, by the way, quite a well known one taken at a gig at The Station in Gateshead in around 1983, I think, courtesy of the late Chris Killip. I had the pleasure of speaking with on-line shortly before he died, and he sent me copies of some of his work..

    Thanks for the upload, most appreciated.
    I myself also remixed an album worth of tracks under the names Neon Clash and Alien Clash, which are featured amongst the many others.
    I did'nt have a clue what to do but during lock down, through trial and error, I achieved results I was happy with.
    My favourite being the Punch and Judy mix.
    Cheers 'George'
