The Thing From The CryptDark Entries
***Dark Entries is proud to present The Thing From The Crypt, a 16-track compilation of UK DIY/Synth/New Wave/Post-Punk originally released in 1981. Showcasing the thriving post punk sound of Watford, a town in Hertfordshire, England, located 20 minutes northwest of central London. The Thing From The Crypt neither attempts to sell a 'Wotford sound' nor claims to be a comprehensive guide to the area's best beat bands. Like all good compilations, its essence is variety: some tracks will make you come whilst other will make you vomit.”—original liner notes by ROBERT DELLAR. This compilation features 8 bands with two songs included by each group. Tracks from EXHIBIT A, SAD LOVERS & GIANTS, MEX, GAMBIT OF SHAME, FLYING BEECHCRAFT, IMAGE IN RUIN, SOFT DRINKS, S-HATERS, and SOFT DRINKS. All songs have been transferred from the master tapes by PAUL MEX and remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk screened artwork. Each LP includes a copy of the 12 page booklet that came with the original pressing. The Thing From The Crypt is more than a local compilation, its the stuff John Peel shows were made of.
