Description

A hugely influential album cited as the embryo for punk, grunge and beyond. Featuring epic 1970 concepts from this far-reaching trio much praised by Underworld’s Karl Hyde, Captain Sensible, Stephen Malkmus and a host of others. Thank Christ For The Bomb is a visionary tale of cold war fear, alienation and everyday drama. A thinking man’s rumination on alienation, the album is a game of two halves; side one tackling the thermonuclear threat while side two traces riches to rags alienation in everyday London. Also featuring Radio 1 sessions and live versions of key tracks including a lengthy take of Soldier recorded for the BBC’s In Concert series. First of a trio of ground-breaking albums that steered the band from the Blues into a heavier, more prog-based sound and a true reflection of their much-praised live sound.
