AMEBIX- Who’s the Enemy 7"EP (Spiderleg Records, UK, 1982)

amebix_front.jpgamebix_back.jpgOne of the best things about running such a Blog is, that it gives you the opportunity to dig up forgotten records from your own collection.
I never fancied AMEBIX’ first 7″ that much, but when I decided to make a proper rip of it (it hasn’t received much blogger-fame so far, from what I could find out), I realized that it’s actually much better than I had it remembered! Besides, it’s highly enjoyable when you can hear a band working on its profile. This is very dark already, but more on the Punk and on the Killing Joke side of things. Plus, you get a song of the band’s motto (a Proudhon catchphrase). I must admit, I’m surprised, really, on how good this is!
You’ll find more AMEBIX on this blog, just search for it.

This goes out to you, Rob ol’mate. Hope you don’t mind.

    Fantastic. I’ve never had any proper releases from Amebix, just live sets. Its nice to hear studio stuff.

    This is so good a release that I could seriously consider compromising my negative stance on tattooes and go get the whole damn cover including the rim on the vinyl done all over my back, legs and arse…well actually probably not, but it is that good.

    Came in to this post by was of it being mentioned on Rob Miller’s Isle of Skye site. Good stuff. I like this earlier stuff a lot, and maybe some folks think it’s horrible, but it works for me…
