While 1987's Dementia Americana single is a deliberate goth punk stomper somewhere between early P.I.L. and KILLING JOKE, this unmarked demo from 1984(?) is an unhinged primitive blast of psyched out UK punk. The second track sounds like a marriage of SUBHUMANS and HAWKWIND, and they only get weirder from there. The fifth song could be a lost Rough Trade no wave/post punk nugget, as much in common with snotty '70s art/noise as with any era of English punk. "All your religions: Nothing. All your politics: Nothing. All your art: Nothing. All your thoughts: Nothing. All your ideals: Nothing. Free yourselves and feel nothing." Damaged and brilliantly raw...and punk as shit.
