|CRASS / TEST DEPARTMENT SPLIT REMIX VINYL 12" EP.
on One Little Indian
Side 1. Anarchy In The UK (Test Dept remix)
|Side 2. Feeding Off The Sweat (Maral Mahmoudi remix)
Pioneering punk outfit Crass continue with their ambitious The Feeding Of Five Thousand Remix Project, a self-professed testament to just how multifarious the group were when they dropped The Feeding back in 1978. Melding elements of rap and grime, before either were even a thing, with raw and raucous anarchistic guitar spirit, there's a lot that can be done with those original stems.
This is the fourth case in point, which involves the innovative and hugely influential sonic industrialist Paul Jamrozy, AKA Test Dept's most iconic member, who here delivers something that's part-ode to the source material, and part-nod to his own outfit, which is also sadly no more. Flip to find an altogether different beast, from dublab and Ninja Tune's Los Angeline production wizard, Maral Mahmoudi.
