Hidden in amongst the porn in Chris Low’s bedroom is some fine stuff, scanned and uploaded for you tonight. Thanks to him for all the above material. The magnificent Subhumans and Flux demos (three tracks each – the original demo tapes had more tracks on) are well worth a listen (the whole of my Flux demo tape was uploaded by me on this site way back in November 2007, if you care to listen to all the tracks).

New Crimes was a fanzine released in the Southend area, compiled and edited by Graham Burnett who now runs all kinds of ‘green’ workshops and has released several books and pamplets on ‘green’ issues.

The Spiralseed site, run by Graham is worth a peek and all literature is available online on his site or via Housmans Bookshop in Kings Cross, London, N1.

  1. 86 Mix are letting the side down by not having a symbol…
    After all, Subhumans have got 3 – the ‘Mix could have pulled their fingers out…

    (Nice one – great to have a copy of this again after all these years: I remember coming home from school and listening to this)

  2. I have heard tales of whole families (some say small settlements, even) of poor wretches living amongst the porn in Chris’ bedroom, like some kind of sex-wee-encrusted Dickensian refugees…
    Shocking…

  3. Blimey! Here I am in Palmdale California enjoying a bit of down time from the pretty full on 2 week Permaculture Design Course I’m running over here with Ars Terra (yes, I know…) thinking, hmm I need to forget about permaculture for a few hours, lets log onto KYPP and see if anything interesting has been uploaded, and here I am confronted by my dodgy past! My hosts at Ars Terra are well into the UK anarcho punk scene, having put on a few LA gigs for our old pals Conflict and Rubella Ballet (with many stories to tell about a certain Mr Jerwood), so will show them this in the morning! In the meantime heres some pics of the course and a bit more about Ars Terra and what they are trying to achieve…
