Civilised Society? - Violence Still Sucks! 2xCD

Double CD! This double CD reissue contains their two 1980s albums ("Scrap Metal" and "Violence Sucks") plus 4 bonus tracks.

For those unfortunate enough not to know Civilised Society?, they were an anarchopunk band from Yorkshire with Hammy from Peaceville and the Instigators as one of the singers. In fact, they had three singers at some point, one female and two males, which gave the band a sort of Chumbawamba-like quality. I like to think that if Chumba had been into hardcore and metal, they would have done something not unlike Civilised Society?

Civilised Society? played punk music that was fused with metal, yet had brilliant lyrics.

Their first record would had been through Bluurg, but something that has not been explained yet happened between the band and the label which led them to Manic Ear Records instead. With a budget of two hundred, and forty-eight dollars, the band recorded their "Scrap Metal" album. Some say it marked the new era for the 'Thrash' genre. It was described as 'Virtually Heavy Metal Music, played at Punk speed with meaningful lyrics. And even a touch of 'harmony' thrown in!'

They quickly recorded and released their second album titled "Violence Sucks!" on the same Manic Ears label. The band split in 1987, playing their final gig at a very special Christmas party on 23/12/87 in Adam and Eves in Leeds where it all began for them.
