Potential Threat were formed in Blackburn, England, in 1981, and recorded a couple of 7″s between 1982 and 1985. They played a lot of gigs with such bands as Discharge (their main influence in member Pauline’s own words), Conflict, Crass, and so on. The band gained recognition from punk fans in the UK and were renowned for their totally wild and out of control gigs. After some lineup changes, the band recorded this fucking ace LP in 1985 and released it on the mighty Mortarhate label in an edition of 1000 copies that were sold in a few months. Thirteen tracks of absolutely great and fast punk played as it has to be played — with high energy and rage.
This first-ever reissue is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and includes replica artwork and insert. Limited to 500 copies.
