6 tracks, 20 minutes. Steve Ignorant from Crass and members of DIRT. 16 page cd booklet including politically motivated lyrics for all of us in the real world. Confrontational and honest.  Stratford Mercenaries formed in January 1997 in London, England. Like most musicians, once inflicted with the virus for playing music, its difficult to cure, and the Stratford Mercenaries are not immune. The group includes ex-members of Dirt, Buzzcocks, SS Trolleys, Conflict, CRASS and Current 93, among others.  After forming, an initial tour of the U.S. was soon to follow in April 1997. While on tour, the group recorded a 7 inch single which was released on SMB. Appropriately entitled "Live in the U.S.", the 7" sold out of the initial 1000 pressing in 15 days (though we have a few copies left here in the shop!)  Within a year, the Stratford Mercenaries were in Southern Studios recording their debut album "No Sighing Strains of Violins" with Penny Rimbaudas producer. "No Sighing Strains of Violins" was released in June of 1998.
