BLEEDING PYLES evolved into KRONSTADT UPRISING shortly after these rehearsal tracks were recorded in 1981. Classic second wave UK punk that shines through a questionable recording and arguably competent delivery, these songs seem to come from two different sessions; the first two are of a notably higher quality but the ones that follow are primitive and raw punk of the highest quality. No need to go into the muli-membered history of the band, as that has already been handled here, but suffice to say that even in their rough form, these tunes are an excellent listen, and a superbly random artifact leftover from the early days of UK punk.
