Crust - The One On The Left Is Me

Label: Self Released
Year: 1988(?)

I really don't know much about this release other than it's the first Crust cassette demo. I don't know if that is actually an image from the cover up there. Who knows? I can't tell you the proper running order of the tracks either. Sorry.
I can tell you that it's some pretty sweet Crust though. The quality is slightly murky, but generally fits the mood of the music, so it's hard to tell how "lo-fi" the recording is versus how "lo-fi" the actual instrumentation was. If you like Crust, you should grab this, it's well worth your time. Strange, industrial-tinged, hallucinogen fueled, Texas styled freak rock. They would later go on to put out records on Trance Syndicate and Touch and Go, so you get the idea.
I need to run now, I'm meeting James Joyce for lunch. Yes, THE James Joyce!
