• zounds The Curse of Zounds (white vinyl LP, £9.95)

    label: overground

    Zounds formed in Reading in 1977 releasing their first single Can’t Cheat Karma on Crass Records in 1980. This early association with Crass meant they were key figures in the bourgeoning anarcho-punk scene along with The Mob, Poison Girls, Flux of Pink Indians and many others. • ZOUNDS released their first album The Curse of Zounds in 1982, recording and mixing the LP within five days. • The album is now seen as a classic of the genre and one of the most inspirational albums of the post-punk period. • This is a limited pressing of 500 only, which closely reproduces the cover, inner bag and labels of the original.
