IN THIS TIME OF PROXY WARS AND FALSE FLAG ATTACKS AS WORLDS COLLIDE NOW, MORE THAN EVER IS THE TIME TO SAY AGAIN HOW MUCH LONGER DO WE TOLERATE MASS MURDER?
Long out of print, this will be the first time the highly sought after album has been reissued, let alone made available digitally or on CD. Originally released in March 1980 on their own Y label through Rough Trade, For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? spent 20 weeks in the Indie charts, peaking at #1.
Produced and mixed by the band, For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder? represents the quintessential independent Pop Group album -untethered, entrenched and completely committed to challenging the political orthodoxy of the day and savagely denunciating its failings.
The Pop Group singer and lyricist, Mark Stewart says: “Context is crucial. At the time The Pop Group were playing multiple rallies and benefits across Europe from Scrap SUS to Aid for Cambodia to our final blow out at the 500,000 strong Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament rally in Trafalgar Square.”
Declared a “revolutionary, anti-imperialist manifesto” by Mark Paytress(MOJO, Record Collector, Rolling Stone), the album has been celebrated by Uncut as one of the 50 Greatest Lost Albums.
