The Epileptics

Image Hosted by
The band that would eventually become Flux Of Pink Indians, formed in Bishops Storford in 1978. Early gigs with Crass would form a partnership up until the demise of both bands. Trouble seemed to dog The Epileptics in this early part of their career. Epilepsy groups were annoyed by the name and tried to force the band to change it. This lead to troubles with the record label withdrawing early pressings of the single. To top it Anti-Pasti released the song "Two Years Too Late" after The Epileptics had sent it to the band as a demo.
This version is a re-release of the record on the bands own label in 1981 & features Penny Rimbaud of Crass on drums.
