Napalm Death

Ken Sharp's photo of Napalm Death at the back bar of the Canterbury Arms, Brixton, December 1988... I was listening to Mick Harris' dark ambient project Lull earlier today (the gaseous drones of 1996's Continue album mingling rather nicely with the incessant rain hammering against the window). With Lull and the isolationist dubscapes of Harris' other group Scorn, I tend to forget that Harris was the "whirlwind tornado" responsible for the frenzied blast beats of Napalm Death's Scum and From Enslavement to Obliteration albums. Ken Sharp's brilliant photo captures Napalm Death in their short-lived From Enslavement unit with Shane Embury, Mick Harris, Lee Dorrian and Bill Steer. What a room !
