the thing from the crypt / LP / DE-036

'The Thing From The Crypt', is a 16-track compilation of UK Diy/synth/new-wave/post-punk originally released in 1981. Showcasing the thriving post punk sound of Watford, a town in Hertfordshire, England, located 20 minutes northwest of central London. 'The Thing From The Crypt' neither attempts to sell a Wotford sound nor claims to be a comprehensive guide to the area's best beat bands. Like all good compilations, its essence is variety: some tracks will make you come whilst other will make you vomit. This compilation features 8 bands with 2 songs included by each group. Exhibit A were a quartet featuring Mat and Dan from Solid Space and Paul and Andrew from Twelve Cubic Feet. Legendary post-punk act Sad Lovers & Giants make their 1st appearance here as a 5-piece. Mex was the solo project of Paul Mex, the man responsible for this compilation, who went on to produce songs for Wham and George Michael. Gambit Of Shame deliver driving carnival pop and would later work with ex-Soft Machine member, Robert Wyatt on their debut single. Flying Beechcraft serve a slice of wistful Flying Nun indie pop. Image In Ruin bounce between off-kilter NY no-wave skronk and angst. Soft Drinks were a short-lived synth-punk trio featuring the Jon Greville of Rudimentary Peni and Martin Drooper of The Magits who released a 3 song ep on Outer Himmylayan Productions. S-Haters were a deathrock quartet also on the Outer Himmylayan roster who channeled the gothic punk of Pil's "Metal Box" and Joy Division. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk screened artwork. Each LP includes a copy of the 12 page booklet that came with the original pressing. 'The Thing From The Crypt' is more than a local compilation, its the stuff John Peel shows were made of.
