I don't care what anyone says, this is the first true Hardcore Punk record, loud, angry, distorted, and nuclear.

I'm looking for the rare lyric insert that was sent by the band or Clay in the early 80's. Please let me know if you have a spare!

Anyone know where Martin H is now? the sleeve designer? He was my friend at college and we hung out with Discharge a lot.

Hey up mate! I believe he lives down in Exeter now. He was at the Discharge gig this Wednesday.
