MIDDLE CLASS- Scavenged Luxury 7"EP (Torture Garden, USA, 1980)

middleclass_scavengedmiddleclass_backYeah, MIDDLE CLASS put out the first ever “hardcore” vinyl with their debut “Out of Vogue” blahblahblah. I’ll agree on that. But fact is, they later became much much better! The 2nd 7″, which you’ll find here and the LP were may be total GANG OF FOUR w(h)orshipping, but then again – isn’t it better to have a good “copy” than a bad “original”? And looking back, it wasn’t really copied what they did, it was “inspired”. Extremely imaginative, sleazy, rhythmic are the 4 songs on this 2nd 7″ from 1980 and they are the perfect soundtrack for some good fucking, if you ask me!

Get some intercourse-punk!

    I love this record, more so than the first record everyone spurts all over. It has the Gang of Four sound, but Middle Class do it better IMO.

    You’re perfectly right with that! And IMO, THE PROLETARIAT did it even better!

    i am so sick of old shits cumming on and on about out of vogue, and neglecting the existence of scavenged luxury (besides, Situations is the best song on the first 7″)
