LACK OF KNOWLEDGE

Regular price $27.00
Punk pioneers Crass continue their vinyl reissue series ‘2 by 2 And Back Again’ with reissues from Lack of Knowledge and Sleeping Dogs. Lack of Knowledge formed in 1978 and explored the intersection of punk and new wave, with brooding synth and an angular, melancholy edge. Their greyscale, gothic delivery recalls the likes of The Damned and Joy Division, but they found a home in the capital’s thriving anarcho-punk scene, seemingly more in-keeping with their work ethic. They consistently and defiantly subverted expectations, taking what a band seeking commercial success would do, and at each turn doing the opposite. Unpretentious, and embodying the very essence of DIY value, they have since become something of a cult hit, with their original 1984 Crass Records release now a bona fide collector’s item.
