From the Alternative wab site “The band made their first appearance on vinyl courtesy of Crass, with the track ‘Change It’ (also known as ‘Blind Ones’)on 1980’s ‘Bullshit Detector’ album. A simple, rather generic punk ditty, that stood out on the record by virtue of its unassuming yet catchy chorus, it not only helped the band’s national profile immensely, more importantly itstarted a relationship with Crass that would eventuallylead to the release of the quietly seminal ‘In Nomine Patri’ single in early 1983, by which time, Gordon ‘Gogs’ Smith had replaced Wilf on bass, and Dougie McHale from The Actives had joined as second guitarist. Recorded at Southern Studios by John Loder, the main thrust of the EP was the potent ‘Anti Christ’, a powerful statement opening with the unforgettable metaphor, ‘I came out of the warm womb into a world of fear and hopelessness, I was given the gift of life, but the package of this gift was opened by someone else…’ It spent three months in the Independent Charts, peaking impressively at No. 6”
