Apostles/Anathema split 12" w/ Defiant Insight fanzine
After being delayed for 33 years, the Apostles/Anathema split 12" EP finally sees a full pressing. Initially planned to be issued by Mortarhate Records offshoot Fight Back Records in 1986, it made it all the way to the test pressing stage before being mysteriously aborted. London's Inflammable Material has restored the tracks and pressed it as a full 12" EP that also features the original artwork designed to accompany the record all the way back in 1986. Musically, the EP contains two excellent bands from the U.K. anarchist punk scene. While the Apostles were a well known London political band with numerous releases out, this was intended to be Anathema's vinyl debut. It's been a long time coming.
The Negative Insight component of the release is a full sized A4 zine with the content written by Negative Insight and the layouts created by Mike from Defiant Pose zine/Inflammable Material Records. It features two articles covering the post-Crass years London anarchist punk scene. The first piece, entitled Mortarhate Records: The Unreleased Titles, interviews bands that were supposed to have a release on the Conflict labels Mortarhate and Fight Back Records including Antisect, The Varukers, Avskum, Eat Shit, and many more. The second piece covers the propaganda of the (infamous and notorious, depending on one's point of view) Class War Federation and discusses some of their most impactful propaganda campaigns.
