Here's a rare split flexi for you. The first track is performed by CHRONIC and the title is No Time. My copy had lot's of pops and shit at the beginning of the track, so I replaced it for some downloaded one instead. Don't know where I got that one from, and I really don't give a shit. I'm just happy I didn't have to pay the £100
for it as it reached, as I think, last summer or likely on eBay. And this copy didn't have a shitty copied cover made in five minutes through the computer.
(or was that the copy on eBay BEFORE the £100 one I mentioned? Who cares?.)


Anyway. Obviously the bands on this record shared some members and came from Bradford. LIVING DEAD (which perform the 2nd track 'Procession'), is not to be mistaken as 'THE Living Dead', Stoke-On-Trent band, which had a spin on the Endangered Musik V/A 7" 'Fight Back' in '85. LIVING DEAD also released a demotape in '82, which I've never heard (I'm curious about that one, so rip that one for me please ;). It is of course about bloody time someone rip 'THE Living Dead's (S-O-T for you who missed that 'THE' again in the band-title), demo-tape "Death Threat" which was recorded in '83 or '84. There were of course more U.K. bands named Living Dead in the 80's, (as I believe some early stage of Polemic (Attack)/Tears Of Destruction etc for example).

Other stuff I managed to hear by CHRONIC is a track on the V/A Enemies Of The State LP (song 'Who Cares'), and a track on the V/A Raw War tape (song 'Terror Squad').
More CHRONIC stuff would of course be appreciated as well!.

Hi there, you'll find a bit more Living Dead/Chronic stuff on my blog:
there's some mp3s and the 3 editions of the Apathy fanzine up for grabs - the links to the mp3s are highlighted red - the post is called, 'We're From Bradfofd'.

All the best
