I say…


I met John Yates back in the late 1980’s at the Alternative Tentacles office above Rough Trade in Kings Cross. We shared a mutual love of political punk rock and Active ended up financing a reprint of his Punchline  COP magazine and became the European DIY distributor of his Alllied Recordings. 

Warfear is typical of one of John’s financially unsuccesful but wonderfully worthy productions. I found a box of them recently and can find no record of what they originally cost. They are for sure unavailable anywhere else! Grab one before they become collectable!
