Pictures Of Pain

Pushead's Pusmort label released this weird piece of dour English post-punk from a band called Part 1. Kind of like Anarcho-punk meets classic Death Rock. You might hate this, you might love it. I'm not a fucking mind reader. Jesus.

Thanks so much for posting this, I love this record, been wondering if there was a digical version floating around anywhere. I sat on the fence about buying this for too long when I was a kiddo, then it was gone. >sob, sniff<

You're welcome, Joe. Looks like we'll be seeing one another in Milwaukee in September.

One of my favorites, pulled it out about a month ago. Nice to see it making some rounds.

I ordered this from Pushead in the late 80s along with the Gastunk LP and Thrash 'til Death comp and probably several colorful t-shirts with skulls on them ("under license to Wild Oats"). Shirts are worn but still have those records. I remembered Pus was blowing out the Gastunk and Part 1 LPs @ $4 each at the time.

Part 1's only other record was a 7" that preceeded this LP. It was produced by Rudimentary Peni and has art by Nick Blinko— grab it here if you don't have it already: http://www.cultpunk.com/?p=175

I remember these guys from the "Cleanse the Bacteria" comp. I never owned a LP copy but had a tape that I played so much it eventually wore out and snapped... will be cool to get some more music from these morbid fucks!
