Marking 30 years of Peaceville, the classic debut from UK ‘crust Gods' Electro Hippies is being reissued back on vinyl for the first time in years. Electro Hippies was formed in 1985 and originally set out with the short-lived intention of recording a single demo (even featuring Jeff Walker among their ranks before moving on to Carcass). The band went on to issue the seminal The Only Good Punk...(Is a Dead One) in 1988, which was amongst the very first releases on the newly formed Peaceville Records. The album was recorded November/December of 1987 at Lion Studios in Leeds, West Yorkshire. It demonstrated a perfect attack of lo-fi crust, hardcore and grind, with Electro Hippies also notably recording a session for the legendary John Peel. The band eventually split in 1989 though they've always retained a strong cult following. Presented in its original vinyl sleeve.
