Part 1 - Funeral Parade EP
Label PART 1
Part 1 formed in 1980 and were part of the original London anarcho-punk scene. During the early 1980s they played a number of gigs, often with Rudimentary Peni, who the band became associated with, as well as other acts operating around the London Anarchy Centres funded by Crass’ Bloody Revolutions 7". Part 1’s final gig (before reforming in 2013) was at London’s 100 Club in 1983 with Subhumans.
The band’s only vinyl release during this time was the Funeral Parade EP, released in a limited run of 300 in October 1982. As well as an anarcho-punk classic, the record is now regarded as a seminal deathrock release – largely due to the dark, heavily flanged guitar work, morbid imagery, and anti-religious lyrical themes. Indeed, Part 1have been described as “England’s ultimate cult deathrock band.” (CVLT Nation)
