REVULSION "The Only Revolution / All I Could See" 7" (nab002)


Second record, an amazing record by this band hailing from Norwich  Englang. Personally, I didn't first realise how great it was. It was the time of brutal hc-punk and Class War newspaper and they came with their melodic tunes and sensible & sensitive hippy stuff! It is a shame they broke up soon after the release of this 7". Nabate would have probably release a full lenght and it probably would've been a classic records. The playing, tunes, timing and recording are close to perfect. It is pure joy to listen back to this 7"! Thanks to this records I got to know a great friend from Croatia. He'd wrote to the band asking about thier record and they'd replied that I'd probably have some copies left. I did, it is a great record that didn't sell well. Only 1040 got pressed on 28/02/1991.
The scan of the sleeve doesnb't give a good idea of the color, it is brighter that what it looks, but strangely the paper and ink seems not scan-compatible.

edit: They have two tracks on "Consolidation" 7", a compilation released in 1987. Revulsion have also a track in "Anarcho punk vol 3-Anti-society" comp cd (Overground Records), a track from their early days in "We wont be your fucking poor"(Mortarhate) and in "Words worth shouting" (Radical Change) and "A Vile Peace"(Peaceville). There is also a demo tape. (from 7inchcrust blog) Thanks for the good job. I have this great "Consolidation" comp. 7" and completly forgot about it!

I might be spamming your blog here w/ all (3 of...) the comments & what not, but I have to say that I downloaded the 7" some time ago & was hooked on as if it were 7" of steel talons instead of 7" of vinyl! I don't even recall the last time I heard something so old-fashioned & so good... Anyway, thanks for all the music - I think I got some records from you at Signal Lost's show in La Zone (11/2005), but I have no idea whether it was really you who did the distro or not - I just thought 'La Zone... Liege... Nabate...' :). Oh well, it doesn't matter anyhow!

Greetings potress & whispered.. Thanks for posting comments! Yes IT WAS MASKE, you are right! Greetings to him if you meet him!
I wasn't at la Zone for this gig, it was la ZOne distro. I do go to la Zone very often thought, great place :o)

All the best!

I spend years asking to this friend of mine to give me this one!!!
Eventually he did... As it's super good, I thought it was sold out and that everybody rushed to buy it.
