CHRIST THE ALBUM

Christ - The Album and Well Forked But Not Dead were released together as a box set in 1982. There are forty songs between the two records, all of the songs on Well Forked... were recorded live between 1977 and 1981.

The box was embossed with a small Crass logo (2.25 cm) and in addition to the two records it contained a 30 x 58 cm poster painted by Gee (G. Sus) and the 26 page leaflet, A Series of Shock Slogans and Mindless Token Tantrums.
