Way Out Radio: Crass Special feat Penny Rimbaud Interview

In 1978, just as The Sex Pistols and The Clash were winding down and many people deemed punk as dead, a radical punk band by the name of Crass emerged and released the EP Feeding of the 5000. The band hoped to sell one hundred copies initially but the pressing plant used would only print a minimum of five thousand, hence the title. Crass were astounded to sell all five thousand independently and go to a second pressing. Quickly the band gained a following so vast, that they became leaders of their own splinter genre of Punk, labelled Anarcho-Punk. Since, Feeding of the 5000 has hit gold status and Crass’ legacy has gone on to influence numerous other bands as well as a profusion of protest movements.
