HAGAR THE WOMB - Word Of The Womb 12'' 1984

I continue with my last two posts from WDR and this 12inch is damn good. Hagar The Womb were an English punk rock band, active in the early 1980s and part of the Anarcho-punk movement. Released on Mortarhate Records, the band was formed in London in 1980, in the toilets of the Wapping Anarchy Centre, established by the efforts of seminal anarchist bands Crass and Poison Girls. The original line-up was all-female, reflecting the band's purpose of giving women a voice in the anarcho-punk scene: Ruth Elias (vocals), Karen Amden (vox), Nicola Corcoran (vox), Janet Nassim (guitar), and Steph Cohen (bass). They toured a lot in the UK, release some tapes and two 12inches. In 2011 Mississippi Records brought a compilation with all their recordings out. - Great female melodic punk goodies.
