BLACK OVER RED


If their name didn't give away the political bent of this mid '80s UK act, check out the unabashedly left leaning "Worker's History" and you'll have a pretty good idea. The shortest tune here still approaches three minutes, and BLACK OVER RED use that extra time to craft deep moody anarcho punk with generous tinges of goth (though those tinges are tempered with a slightly metallic edge...this was 1987 after all). "Decide For Yourself" is a little too long, and they really go the goth route, but "You'll Never Know" follows it up with disjointed ripping UK punk - sloppy in all the right ways. This tape originally had their second demo on the other side (or so says the cover), but my blank B side just leaves me wanting to hear more. Which I guess is a good way to dupe people into looking for your music.

Here you go... Got this rip which contains the missing songs: link.

Not the best sound but what do you expect from a tape from 24 years ago? :D
