THE SYSTEM - Thought Control 1997

Since I do a boat trip on the weekend and now I'm sick. Since yesterday plague me sore throat and it's damn unpleasant. Hope it goes quickly away. Last Friday I ripped this brilliant record by the System and today I come to post this and the advantage here is that a short bandbio is print on the backcover so here it is: The System formed in the summer of 1980 having messed around in various other bands since 1978. In 1981 they met a band called Flux Of Pink Indians, who helped them make their first single - the Warfare EP. This was very successful and contained their anthem - the Dogs Of War. By mid 1981 they were touring with Flux Of Pink Indians and the legendary Crass. They followed up with their second single - The System Is Murder. By this time they were being recognized all over the UK, Europe and the USA. Soon the album would follow and this record, however, never saw the light of day until 1997, through the help of Profane Existance and Skuld Records. Sorry it is a bit late but politics never change. And its as relevant today as it would have been then. Thirteen very good pieces, two of them live, chic presentation and recommended.
