CRASS

PENIS ENVY

THE CRASSICAL COLLECTION


Format: CD BOOK
Cata No: CC03CD
Barcode: 718752578325
The Crassical Collection continues with Penis Envy, number three in the series of re-releases of Crass' now classical albums. After many years of being out of print, this legendary album has been repackaged and bolstered by rare and unreleased tracks, and stunning new artwork from Gee Vaucher, who has lovingly created what could only be considered a real artefact. Included in this package is a 64-page booklet featuring extensive liner notes from band members Penny Rimbaud and Eve Libertine which sheds light on the making of the record, plus a recreation of the original poster sleeve. 'There were, and still are, ideas within the words of these Crass songs which can act as tools to choose and use for a while as you go on your own crazy, sweet way. When they no longer serve you, discard them. Good luck...and laugh.' 'She who shouts the loudest? Well, yes, and what's more I'm in no doubt at all that it can be heard to advantage in the resultant remix. Penis Envy turned out to be the closest Crass ever got to sounding anything like a proper rock 'n' roll band, tunes 'n' all.' ''Bloody hell,' responded Steve, 'it sounds almost commercial.' Which, of course, was a dirty word to all of us. 'Maybe,' I conceded, 'but the message certainly isn't.'' File Under: Punk For Fans of: Crass ? who else? ? Newly remastered, and bolstered with rare and unreleased tracks. ? All new artwork from Gee Vaucher including a recreation of the original poster sleeve. ? Includes a 64-page perfect bound booklet featuring extensive liner notes from Penny Rimbaud and Eve Libertine.

Press:

CURRRENT ISSUE OF MOJO HAS A 9 PAGE FEATURE ON CRASS, as well as appraisal for the first three of these reissued albums.

Quotes:
'There's a strong argument for the two most influential punk
bands of all time being the Sex Pistols and Crass; the
former encouraged bored teenagers everywhere to get off
their arses and start their own bands, the latter encouraged
them to get off their arses and think for themselves' ? Ian
Glasper, Record Collector, 2004
