Bullshit Detector 1, 2 & 3
On June 9th Crass Records, alongside One Little Independent Records, has reissued their iconic three volume compilation series ‘Bullshit Detector’ on 12” vinyl, available in both classic black and limited-edition grey.
‘Bullshit Detector’ was the name of a series of compilation LPs put together by the anarcho-punk band Crass and released on their own label. Three editions were released between 1980 and 1984, consisting of demo tapes, rough recordings and artwork that had been sent to the band. The sound quality of the ‘Bullshit Detector’ series was mixed and often basic, or even poor, as Crass would master the tapes directly to record without any additional production or enhancement. For Crass, the expectation of a polished performance was missing the point.
