From The day the country died
“When we did the single we had a whole weekend to record” recalls Dave of the artistic heights that Penny and engineer John Loder helped the band to attain. “And we tracked all the instruments separatly which was a much more technical process than we were used to doing but we really enjoyed it. We tried out lots of effects and even some ‘proper production techniques’ , and messed about with the tuning a bit on "Parents of God”, and it turned out really well.

“We were totally made up that we we’d done this single for Crass and sold eight thousand copies, but it didnt make much difference to our profile locally or anything. We carried on booking our own shows and stuff… although we did go to Stevenage to play with Crass at the Bowes Lyon House, that was a really big show for us and we seems to go down well enough with the Crass fans."
