SCRITTI POLITTI – Skank Bloc Bologna – Used 7″


1 in stock


The third single of the three big catalysers of the DIY vinyl boom of 78-80,after ‘Spiral Scratch (Buzzcocks),and The Desperate Bicycles; this exercise in marxist anti-capitalism was intended to encourage others to follow the same DIY philosophy. Like The Desperate Bicycles they included instructions and the costings on how to record and release your own single.
Egalitarian and anti-corporate as it was, the music was also inspiringly non-rock, verging on the anti-music.Classically loose and falling apart,there was a notably improvisational slant to Scritti’s music. It´s their very first 7″, much different from their later deliveries. Hard to find and very sought after. VG+/VG+
