In late 2019, anarchist punk icons Crass took the step of making the original separate track stems of their seminal debut album ‘The Feeding of the Five Thousand’ available as a free download on One Little Indian Records. With a call to take the original sixteen-track recording in its pre-mix state, the intent was for people to create their own remixes and interpretations and breathe fresh life and ideas into this revolutionary music. First released in 1978, ‘The Feeding of the Five Thousand’ pre-empted rap and grime in its hard-on-the-beat, fast fire, uncompromising lyrics and the iconic sounds and messages are ripe for reinterpretation. Crass encouraged people to rip apart the sound and ideas and create something new, then send the files to Crass Records for future releases and charitable projects. The response was fantastic with close to one hundred submissions from professionals, amateurs, do gooders, do badders, DIYers and give it a tryers twisting and morphing the sounds. The first results of this creative process are ready to be heard and released in the form of a twelve-inch EP (alongside a limited 1000 red vinyl pressing) of remixes by producer and XL Recordings honcho Richard Russell under the guise rLr, who tackles and further subverts the anti-war anthem ‘They’ve Got A Bomb’, turning it into a stuttering, rhythmic rattle, whilst Boston, Massachusetts experimental synth-pop artist Glasser takes aim at ‘Do They Owe Us A Living?’ and takes the original song’s simple, direct messaging into entirely different realms of rhythm and distortion. All monies raised from the project will go to the charity ‘Refuge’ – http://www.refuge.org.uk/
