And admittedly rough rehearsal recording from FACTION, but it's cool to hear these tunes in their formative stages. Still surprises me that this band seems to be destined for second-tier status in the world of '80s UK anarcho punk, as they evoke more passion and emotion than many better known and more emulated acts. "Banner From The Lion" is a total killer, they were flirting with No Wave art/punk perhaps without even knowing it.
