Here's the "We Despise Society" demo from the same year.

"Steal Cheat & Victimise" was without a doubt one of the highlights of this very good compilation. This is the type of Punk I just can't get bored with. More of it!
PS Glad you did listen to Jive Turkey (at last!)...

I loved this band. They used to attract loads of young punks to their local gigs in youth clubs and stuff in the early eighties. Singer Smiffy used to have the logo painted on the back of his jacket. It actually looked better than the tape cover.If this had been released as a single i think it would still be regarded as highlight of the genre. The drum sound is well tight. glad you both like it.
@J what about posting the rest of the album I aint got a copy any more! :)
