I have a lot of respect for Crass, and like much of their work. Having said that, dear old Penny Rimbaud can come across as a bit of a humorless old git sometimes...

I don't know their music enough but I liked what I've heard. I never got the big deal about their mystique. It's not like they saved the world or anything.

System, system, system.
Death in life.

Poor little fucker, poor little kid,
Never asked for life, no she never did.
Poor little baby, poor little mite,
Crying out for food as her parents fight.

System, system, system.
Send him to school.
System, system, system.
Force him to crawl.
System, system, system.

System, system, system.
Kick him off his feet.

Poor little schoolboy, poor little lad,
They'll pat him if he's good and they'll beat him if he's bad.
Poor little kiddy, poor little chap,
They'll force feed his mind with their useless crap.

System, system, system.
Teach her how to look.
System, system, system.
They'll teach her all the tricks,
System, system, system.
Create another victim for their greasy pricks.

Poor little girly, poor little wench,
Another little object to prod and pinch.
Poor little sweety, poor little filly,
They'll fuck her mind so they can fuck her silly.
They'll fuck her mind so they can fuck her silly.

System, system, system.
He's grown to be a man.
System, system, system.
Taugh to fit the plan.

Forty years of jobs.
System, system, system.
Pushing little buttons, pulling little knobs.

Poor fucking worker, poor little serf,
Working like a mule for half of what he's worth.
Poor fucking grafter, poor little gent,
Working for the cash that he's already spent.
Working for the cash that he's already spent.

He's selling his life,
She's his loyal wife,
Timid as a mouse,
She's got her litlle house,
He's got his little car,
And they share the cocktail bar
She likes to cook his meals,
You know, something that appeals.
Sometimes he works til late
So his supper has to wait,
But she doesn't really mind
Cos he's getting overtime.
He likes to put a bit away
Just for that rainy day,
Cos every little counts
As the cost of living mounts.
They do the pools each week
Hoping for that lucky break.
Then they'd take a trip abroad,
Do all the things they can't afford.
She'd really like to have a fur,
He's like a bigger car.
They could buy a bungalow,
With a Georgian door for show.
He might think of leaving work,
But no, he wouldn't like a shirk.
He'd much prefer to stay
And get his honest days pay.
He's got a life of work ahead,
There's no rest for the dead.
She's tried to make it nice,
He's said thankyou once or twice.

System, system, system.
Deprived of any hope.
System, system, system.
Taught they couldn't cope.
System, system, system.
Slaves right from the start.
System, system, system.
Til death do them part.

Poor little fuckers, what a sorry pair,
Had their lives stolen, but they didn't really care.
Poor little darlings, just your ordinary folks,
Victims of the system and it's cruel jokes.
Victims of the system and it's cruel jokes.

The couple views the wreckage
And dreams of home sweet home,
They'd almost paid the mortgage,
Then the system dropped its bomb.

jeffrey lewis album is worth listening to!

i've always found them interesting in their marrying together a sort of sixties counter-culture thing, and punk. Saying that, I've also thought they brought together the most annoying aspects of both: earnestness, dogmatism and an over obsession with that whole gettin' back to basics thing.

it's their music i like.

like i said, i may not agree with what they were saying or how they were saying it but i admire their commitment (keeping it indie, tape trading, bullshit detectors, breaking up when they said they would, etc.).

http://www.southern.com/southern/band/RPENI/07019.php

Read Penny Rimbauds book a while ago which i think (if i remember rightly) that as a child he entered a quiz and ended meeting the Beatles on a TV show as prize?!,wonder if thats on utube.

Crass is really fucking great. Most anarcho punk annoys the shit out of me, but I'll never be able to deny Crass.

As far as the whole Crass records scene is concerned, the only band I still give a shit about is Rudimentary Peni. Their first three or four releases are really fucking amazing and really one of the only bands I still listen to consistantly from that time period.

Discharge flat out sucks. Disclose does Discharge better than Discharge and thats sad.
