DOWNLOAD- SCUM (1987) Earache Records
Napalm Death‘s first album! Now that is a top notch album cover made by a member of Carcass! One of my favourites, who invented that type of aesthetic.. was it CRASS? I dont know but i like it.
Anyway this is a piece of grind history. The album was recorded for a cheap sum at Rich Bitch Studios in Birmingham. At first the A side of the album was intended for a split release with a crossover band but since Napalm Death underwent some changes in line up that project never saw the light of day. Instead a B side was recorded, notably only drummer Mich Harris played on both sides of the album. Eventually some guy from Earache Records came along and decided to release the album.
Shitty filth lo fi production. Just the way I want it. This album is 33 min of relentless audio violence.
A quirky little note about it is that it was entered into the Guinness book of World Records for shortest song ever recorded.
