  • Major Edition (2XLP RSD 2019)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    2000 only. Gatefold sleeve. Red slipcase, Poppy Download card, Poster, Ration book liner notes. Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, Thank Christ For The Bomb (Major Edition) is reissued on double vinyl with gatefold sleeve - complete with ration book, poppy card and bonus tracks. A hugely influential album cited as the embryo for punk, grunge and beyond. Featuring epic 1970 concepts from this far reaching trio much praised by Underworld’s Karl Hyde, Captain Sensible, Stephen Malkmus and a host of others.Thank Christ For The Bomb is a visionary tale of cold war fear, alienation and everyday drama. A thinking man’s rumination on alienation, the album is a game of two halves; side one tackling the thermo nuclear threat while side two traces riches to rags alienation in everyday London. Also featuring Radio 1 sessions and live versions of key tracks including a lengthy take of Soldier recorded for the BBC’s In Concert series. First of a trio of ground-breaking albums that steered the band from the Blues into a heavier, more prog-based sound and a true reflection of their much-praised live sound.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Thank Christ For The Bomb via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
