V/A Enemies Of The State LP
Third compilation of the well-known 1 In 12 Club from Bradford. This club is still around and is the only autonomously run club in the UK. I've been there a few times in the 90's.
I don't know if the club still releases compilations but I don't think so.
Actually, this is the first one on vinyl. The first 2 are tape-only releases (Anyone out there who has these?).
A lot of diverse stuff here and all in DIY production which adds to the charm. The track of The Three Johns can only be found here. Eton Crop and The Ex are Dutch bands, all the others are from the UK. Wild Willi Beckett and Dirk Spig are poets. And those who enjoy some gothy postpunk need to listen to Requiem.
I also have the fourth volume 'Systembeat' that I will post later.
