Reality Asylum Japanese single on Rough Trade Japan from 1981

I originally touched on this release in the Reality Asylum single release details, but I’ve found some new images around the net that now allow me to flesh out this post. After the initial release of the single and had been an indie chart hit Rough Trade approached the band to see if they wanted to release the single in Japan. Penny remembers ” Rough Trade asked if they could release it and we thought why not, I think Gee did some extra stuff for the sleeve, they did all the work we didn’t have much to do with it” Numbers released vary between 1000-5000

Single with Poster, note the Rough Trade single slip cover.

Rival Tribal Rebel Revel Flexi

Crass Records   421984/6F

Came with the Toxic Grafity zine
Square shaped flexi disc. Some copies with red print,
some printed in silver with a slightly different layout (2nd pressing)

“The Conway Hall gig also boosted one of the more extreme fanzines of the day. Toxic Graffity (sic) had been lined up as the benefactor of the next gig Crass was to play at the Conway Hall, but since they were now understandably persona-non-grata, they offered instead to give the fanzine a new track ‘Rival Tribal Rebel Revels’ – partly inspired by the Conway Hall events – for inclusion as a flexi-disc for the next issue.This proved such a popular move that Toxic Graffity sold tens of thousands, where purchasers were treated to page after page of anarchist ranting and newspaper cut-out invective. It was possibly a sign of one of the failings of the movement that the intelligent and eloquent young man who put the fanzine together considered constant dumbing-down and clichés as the best way to get his message over.” From the story of Crass.

The Toxic Grafity Fanzine which was the beneficiary of Crass giving it the rival tribal rebel revel Flexi.
