Crass - Christ The Album LP

Crass - Christ The Album LP

The fourth studio album by Crass from 1982.

Unlike previous Crass albums, Christ took almost a year to record, produce and mix, during which time the Falklands War had taken place. This caused Crass to fundamentally question their approach to making records. As a group whose very reason for existing was to comment on political issues, they felt that they had been overtaken and made to appear redundant by real-world events.

For subsequent releases, including the singles "How Does It Feel to Be the Mother of a Thousand Dead", "Sheep Farming in the Falklands" and the album Yes Sir, I Will, the band stripped their sound "back to basics", issuing the singles as "tactical responses" to political situations

The albums have been remastered by Alex Gordon and Penny Rimbaud at Abbey Road Studios as close as possible to the sound of the original release “as it was in the beginning”.

Christ The Album is available as a double vinyl boxset or double CD boxset, with both including a fold-out poster and the book “A Series Of Shock Slogans and Mindless Token Tantrums”
