Episode 84 – Crass Impressions of the Queen

In true punk style Crass bring you spiky guitars and a DIY ethic on their graphics whilst bringing the Anarchist politics home with a bang. It’s a big bang too on “Big A Little A”.


  • Shark Fin Soup: Lalo Schifrin gets his teeth into Jaws.
  • All at sea: that’s where you’ll find our rubbish these days. From plastic bags to tampons, most of it floats.
  • Rockin’ on the Go-Go scene: Sam the Beast takes Washington Go-Go to another level.
  • Ol’ Frenchy gets chopped up by English: When Pierre Henry met Coldcut.
  • East meets West as Don Cherry joins tabla meister Latif Khan.
  • Surviving the mean streets of NYC with Grandmaster Melle Mel.
  • The talent of Brian Jones – how the Rolling Stones looked far and wide to incorporate other musical styles within their own.
  • When calypso meets Swing, Wilmoth Houdini toots it well!
