***BACK IN STOCK!!! Official vinyl reissue of the first three Crisis singles, plus early demo recordings and a studio-quality live set recorded in Norway in 1979. The record comes housed in a heavyweight tip-on sleeve with detailed liner notes, reviews, interviews and rarely seen photos. 
The debut 7" from 1978 on Action Group Records, "No Town Hall" features three stonewall punk classics. The next two singles "UK79" and "Alienation" make up the four tracks recorded for a John Peel Session in 1978. The band's lyrics are a product of the time, set against a backdrop of street fights with the National Front, violence at gigs, institutional racism within the police force, class division, industrial strife, sexual repression… Upon reflection, not much has really changed in the last 30 years!  
Also included are demo tracks from 1977 and 1978 which are raw and basic punk just as one would expect. They have never been officially released on vinyl before. Disc two features a live set recorded when Crisis played Norway in 1979 and includes all of the material that later turned up on the "Hymns of Faith" LP. The sound quality of the recording is so good it would pass as studio material.
