Atavistic (UK) -- LP + 2 EPs

I've posted this on Lockjaw, but I thought I'd stick it here too. Another great band from Whitstable, Kent (UK) (there must be something in the water up there -- apart from the oysters...!), Atavistic were a noisy Grind/Crust/Thrash band, with a hyped-up Motorhead feel in places. This is virtually everything they released, all that is missing is the "From Within" demo, and a track from the "A Vile Peace" compilation (anyone have these? Get in touch!). An awesome band, Peaceville really need to get their act together and finally release this stuff on CD.
