Originally released in 1982 on the band’s own Freak records, this classic single was a massive musical leap for Crucifix, providing a link between the initial self titled 12-inch EP and the Dehumanization LP, an undeniable classic of Reagan-era hardcore political punk. Nineteen Eighty-Four is a lo-fi, live-in-studio 2 track recording capturing the band at full intensity, an onslaught of volume and distortion. This recording marked the band’s move into the area of political engagement through message, graphics, and a DIY ethos. In the spirit of the original Freak release, this reissue includes a remake of the patch that was silkscreened by the band for the first pressing in 1982.
