March 20th 2014 – to celebrate the Spring Equinox, Ostara and Soleilmoon Recordings present the album “Paradise Down South”, an apocalyptic celebration of ambivalence conceived in the spirit of upbeat pessimism. 13 songs to uplift you to the depths. Now in its second pressing and available forever online
“Look upon this world of secrets. Look upon this work of demons.”
For the first time ever, the three Crisis singles are officially re-released on Vinyl along with demos from ’77 and ’78 and a simply stunning sounding live set from Norway in 1979. The debut 7″ from 1978 on Action Group Records, ‘No Town Hall’ features three stonewall punk classics. The next two singles ‘UK79′ and ‘Alienation’ make up the four tracks recorded for a John Peel Session in 1978. The lyrics are a product of the time set against a backdrop of street fights with the National Front, violence at gigs, institutional racism within the police force, class division, industrial strife, sexual repression. Upon reflection not much has really changed in the last 35 years! Also included on Side Two are demo tracks from 1977 and 1978 which are raw and basic punk, just as you would expect. They have never been officially released on vinyl before.
Sides Three and Four are a live set recorded when Crisis played Norway in 1979. The performance featured all of the material that later turned up on the ‘Hymns Of Faith’ LP. The sound quality of the recording is very good.
The record comes housed in a tip-on heavyweight sleeve with detailed liner notes, reviews, interviews, and unseen or rarely seen group photos. BLACK VINYL – LIMITED EDITION OF 700.
