Inner City Unit - Punkadelic




Best known for the post-Hawkwind sax of Nik Turner, Inner City Unit were "a devolving London five piece whose music is so far over the edge that it almost defies comprehension. Had the Bonzo Dog Band spent the `70s attending muddy rock festivals this might have been the outcome." You could also add The Rezillo's drinking milk and alcohol with the Bonzo's in a free festival field in the middle of nowhere in the early Eighties. My excuse was that I was stuck in with a crowd who thought Roy Harper was hardcore and there was nothing better on earth than a ten day Zappa guitar solo ... so this spacepunk was the only raft that floated. Dark times.

Originally a LP on Flicknife Records in 1982, this is the CD reissue on Anagram Records from 2007 with additional tracks.

Punkadelic Plus...

And just like that, there's ICU. Blessings and thanks for the post. Oof--dark times indeed. We're as fortunate as you that you survived it.
