La Vida Es Un Mus re-release for the first time on vinyl, since its original release in may 1980, the seven track album from seminal radical and political punk/post punk band Crisis. “Hymns of Faith” was Crisis at their more reserved. The guitar was more innovative than on the punk anthems on their earlier singles, but the lyrics were just as politically bitter. Lyrically the album deals with subjects such as television, violence, totalitarian Russia and European terrorist organizations. This was their final effort, as things had begun to fall apart for Crisis around this time, and people in the band were going in different directions. Luke Rendall went on to Theatre of Hate. Tony Wakeford and Douglas P. went on to Death in June. 30 years since its release “Hymns of Faith” still sounds vital and honest.
Limited edition of 300 (100 on soft blue vinyl).
