Format: Audio CD
The anarcho subgenre has given birth to some truly unlistenable music, as well as a good deal of music that has very little to do with punk musically. Not many people will enjoy, say, Crass or A.P.P.L.E., but the Subhumans are very different. Subhumans have a very distinctly punk sound, unlike their more experimental anarcho brethren (Flux of Pink Indians, Crass, etc.), but also are much more listenable than the harsher side of anarcho (Conflict, Resist and Exist, etc.) The lyrics are perfect, even the simplicity of "No" shines with the brilliant organisation of the music.

Personally, I don't listen to a lot of anarcho, but for this album I make an exception. It's a classic punk album, and it's earnest politics make it much more respectable than the more nihilistic early punk. I highly recommend this album to punk fans of all varieties.

I Bough this Album 16 years ago and still think it rocks the SubHumans stand the test of time and their political brand of Punk made them worthy inheritors of the type of Political Punk brought to the Punk mainstream by Crass. A great album and a must for any Punk Collection. If you like this album a better point of call than the Clash would be Citizen Fish, Rudimentary Peni, Conflict, Minor Threat, The germs of Flux of Pink Indians. If you prefer the Clash's style of 70's Punk try The Ruts, The Stranglers, The Lurkers, X-Ray-Specs, The Adverts of Slaughter & The Dogs.

The Subhumans provided some of the most thoughtful, insightful and angry punk I've ever heard, and I believe this album is their finest work. From "No" to "Mickey Mouse", Dick, Trotsky and the rest of the boys provide listeners with insight into the political side of old-school punk rock. A definite must for any would be Chaos-Bringer.

From the shores of england comes one of the purest examples of the punk sound that i can think of.a band that combines energy with smart lyrics that takes this music a few steps further then either the sex pistols or even the clash.this was the stuff all the punks got into when they were o so bored with those other 2 bands.just honest and true punk rock.so on there fist full album you get alot of punk for ya.with the blazing ''mickey mouse is dead'' to the to the slaming'' new age'' there is nothing bad to say about this one .but this album is what the true punk sounds like not the 5th generation stuff you might of heard on the radio.so if this album is to you likeing i will also recommend to ya..either the g.b.h= discharge=or the u.k.subs some on englands other best stuff from the way back punk machine...

This band, (specifically this album and "TIme flys by Airplanes crash") had a pretty big influence on me when I was 14-15, steering me away from more anti-social (though still enjoyable) punk rock into other bands like Conflict and numerous other politico-punk.
I remember listening to this band over and over again. Check it out
Crass, Subhumans and Conflict. Listen to these three bands and you'll have captured the essence of punks left-wing musical content.

I am a pretty big punk-rock fan, and even though I did not like every thing the subhumans put out. This is one of the best old school punk albums hands down. It is almost like a concept album about anarchy, war and the bad things about life, but still it is a tour de force of music that no true fan of punk should pass up.

This album comes within inches of being absolutely flawless. Hearing the Subhumans for the first time was a turning point in my musical growth. The Best points are "Mickey Mouse is dead", "till the pigs come 'round", Subvert city", and "black and white". Buy this or I will hunt you down.

I first got this record about ten years ago, and it blew my world apart. It was (and still is) much more unique than any other record from that time period. It is utterly flawless. It was perfect for the angry misfit sixteen year old when I got it and now, nearly 26, it is just as potent and even better than ever. Over the past decade my taste in music has wandered all over and I've been quite a snob (I hate to admit), but when I brought this out from a couple year's worth of dust, I was amazed at the strength of the song writing. Frantic brilliance is an appropriate description, I think.

When I saw them on their reunion tour ('98 was it?) they were remarkable. Most reunited bands lack the fire that made them great, but not the Subhumans. I was floored. 'Subvert City' was even creepier.

To wrap it up, this is one of the best and most criminally overlooked punk records of the 80's. You're an idiot if you don't agree.
