Suckerpunch 02:33
Suckerpunch, When it came to the crunch He took to suckerpunch drunk In the normal day in the normal life Of Norman and his very normal wife Who walks then takes the bus and takes the train Then does it all back to front and in reverse again Suckerpunch When it came to the crunch Suckerpunch Try passing on lunch He’s been there for almost 40 years He bought the suit in a sale that he always wears When he arrives at his own office to his own desk Takes off his straightjacket To try and ease a little distress Suckerpunch When it came to the crunch Suckerpunch Try passing on lunch Motherfucking suckerpunch And he hates to do that every day While his life just ebbs away He loosens his tie with his head in the clouds And heads off to where he always stops Normal And Norma greets him when he arrives And they try to discuss their private lives About the state of affairs and aboput the weather And whether there’ll be more time together And the justified always end the means About a minor part in major long terms schemes To relieve the boredom and try to kill a little time Talk of changing the bedding and think up a little crime Suckerpunch When it came to the crunch Suckerpunch Try passing on lunch

Hate To 02:37
Pollution pumped into the skies McCartney lives and Lennon died You know who gets off with a fine Serious crime squad, serious lies Architects and their high rise slums Anyone who pretends to be dumb Anytime that the phone bill comes Traffic wardens, the ultimate scum Big Jessie bands who look like Kiss Ewan Roberts costly penalty miss Surely something’s amiss Cheesy lyrics just like this Eurochannel and MTV Advertising on the BBC SWP and BNP All sex offenders who still roam free Don’t you know that you’ve left it far too late? You surely know that you’ve left it far too late When you hate to have to hate That Mooney’s bald and he won’t admit That HDQ and Snuff both split All the bands who should have quit And people who should give a shit about Swan papers that never sticks People who play Hendrix licks Chris Ellis’ famous monitor mix Dodgy right wing politics Don’t you know that you’ve left it far too late? You surely know that you’ve left it far too late When you hate to have to hate

He took a position in the high commission With a residential presidential position As a doyen of the diplomatic corpse An attaché to an ambassador He wanted to be the man on the spot Until he got involved in a far more serious plot Edgar Allan Poe in the 20th Century Got plenty potential as plenipotentiary He got a position in the delegation As a Charge de Affairs at internuncio station A licence to misrepresent The commissioner of higher permanence The plot thickened and sealed his fate The first secretary couldn’t consulate Forging many messages more or less Buying lingerie and an ambassadress Maximum attention that he must give Working regimental party conservative He wanted to be the man at the top Until he got involved in a far more serious plot Edgar Allan Poe in the 20th Century Got plenty potential as plenipotentiary

I never had to worry if what I do is right Never had to cry myself to sleep at night I never done heroin, crack or PCP And I never felt the need to be a slave to be free Never look, never hear, never speak, never sense and touch Never near, never here, heverhasbeen, never non such I know one thing and I don’t know much Never had to worry, never a care Never stopped to ponder why life’s not fair Never been a fighter or nether either a lover Never takes me to long to recover Never hear, never speak, never sense and touch Never near, heverhasbeen, never non such I know one thing and I don’t know much So how come that I never met Jesus And he never taught me to drive Never stopped to wonder why I’m alive Never heard Beatles, Beethoven or Brahms Never heard none of those 69 Psalms Never ever ever ever ever make me vote Tory Or perhaps that’s a completely different story Never hear, never speak, never sense and touch Never near, heverhasbeen, never non such I know one thing and I don’t know much

Deliverence 02:32
What would you want That we should be What did we say What did we see Where did you think That we’d get free What would it be What would we be Just who am I If I try to see With signals that we’re Not allowed to give From the time we’re small Small we know You can’t allow us All too grow Explain You decide Too big a place For you to hide Inside outside And side by side There’s nothing Allowed outside Check the signs And keep us there Lead us to be Unaware Patronise and hypnotise Take the time To check the lies Explain You decide Too big a place For us both to hide You want us here And here we’ll stay Look in the eye On this winter’s day Take the easy way express Deliverance Take us through to happiness Deliverance Let them have no more or less Deliverance Deliverance Take me there

Scorpio rising across the skies in the west Changing from red to blue to green Take the lithium test Take it to the borders, always on the brink Supercharged chopping on Another powerchord binge Inward out of bounds Suburb of the sounds Underdogging towns Suburb of the sounds Where they go powerpacking packaging At the market stall ball Ripping out the seating At Conventional Hall Inward out of bounds Suburb of the sounds Underdogging towns Step on step on No more interest in the radical Manipulating potential Giving way to the man Misleading the press Superfuzz bigmuff mess It breeds and it breeds and it multiplies Dripping O Zone through the skies No more interest in the ride No one left to drive It breeds and it breeds and it multiplies Dripping O Zone through the skies Surprise Surprise Drinking diesel fluid Fuelled on hash Advancing mass dancing And revenue cash Regulated riff-raffage An industry parade Crank up the heat And get on your feet ‘Cos it’s white hot in the shade Inward out of bounds Suburb of the sounds Underdogging towns Suburb of the sounds

about

It took us a while to decide what to put on this album to properly say goodbye to UK’s most hardworking and active hardcore punk band of the late 80s and early 90s. Having started on the anarcho punk tone on then Bluurg Tapes, they released their first, now iconic, “Nobody Listens Anymore” album. After a big line up change and with the new vocalist on board they were ready to expand their sound and music producing one of the greatest UK hardcore punk albums, such as “Phoenix” or “Shockgun” and touring the world far and wide, taking no prisoners. After a short hiatus INSTIGATORS returned in 1993 with their brand new demo tape for, as it turned out, their last European tour. This record shows INSTIGATORS in their final chapter. Side A features the 1993 demo released on tape by Full Circle and added to Vision On fanzine and Side B is the excerpt of the Huddersfield gig they played prior to their final European tour on March 24, 1993.

Released on orange transparent vinyl with a lyrics insert. Limited edition.
