Icons Of Filth - Used Abused Unamused ep 1983


Probably my favorite of all the Icons records, released on the Crass Records sub-label Corpus Christi in 1983. The Icons Of Filth had a way different sound to most of the then Anarcho bands, it was heavy for one and really fucking chaotic plus they had some of the best artwork this side of Rudimentary Peni courtesy of "Squeal". They were in big with Conflict which sometimes I feel is not a good thing. "Asking Too Much" and "A Measure of Insecurity" are still killer tracks to listen too today. We also all know that vocalist Stig died shortly after playing a show a few years back. Also as a side note Profane Existence released a double CD (aarrgghh, fuck CD's) tribute to the man and his music so have a listen if you get the chance. I will also put up the "Brain Death" and "The Filth & The Fury" ep's too.
