Dystopia – “Human=Garbage” Double LP
Dystopia were around from 1991 to 2008. They did their own unique, misanthropic thing, with a “Love Earth-Hate People” philosophy that ran through all their recordings. But they avoided self-indulgent negativity and infantile shock tactics (hello most grindcore), instead, they were high art, with a moral purpose and a singularly interesting outlook that explored themes of social decay, inner turmoil and environmental issues. Human=Garbage was the first full length (1994) released on the bands own Life is Abuse and Misanthropic Records with help from Common Cause in Germany who booked the bands first European tour. Included with this release are the tracks from splits with Grief and the UK’s Embittered (both from 1993) and another track only previously released on the CD format of this collection. Finally made available again on vinyl, and including an essential 7″ size 16 page booklet.
