CIVILISED SOCIETY? Were one of the most recognisable names on the UK hardcore punk scene of the late 80s, and recently reformed, playing a bunch of shows over the past couple of yearts including the Rebellion Festival, followed by UK and European Tours and the release of the new “WAR IN MY HEAD” EP , which saw the band gaining supporters both old and new to their powerful live dynamics! Now, to co-incide with their next tour in April, and whilst we await the new album andf European tour due later this year, comes this timely double CD re-issue of their two 1980s albums (“SCRAP METAL” and “VIOLENCE SUCKS”) plus 4 bonus tracks recorded for various comps. Released in co-operation with Ruin Nation Records in Germany, this 25 track comp has been lovingly re-mastered and not only features both albums with original artwork, but also a booklet containing liner notes from Shane Dabinett, of Manic Ears Records, for whom the two albums were originally released. Another welcome addition to the Boss Tuneage Retro Series!
