Actives – “Deactivated” LP
This LP collects rare and unreleased studio recordings from 1982 from this pionnering Scottish punk band. Some of these recordings were previously available on a long out of print 2003 UK LP called ‘Recativated’ which didn’t turn out as the band wanted, so with their input, “Deactivated” is the ‘directors cut’ version they originaly envisioned. Anthemic Anti-Pasti style punk – lo-fi, unsophisticated, suprisingly melodic, and totaly authentic. Way better than Exploited, Abrasive Wheels, Chron Gen etc.
