34 Years Ago: CONFLICT release It's Time to See Who's Who

Eltham's CONFLICT released their debut album during this month in 1983. It's Time... was originally released on Corpus Christi Records, the label formed by members of CRASS and Southern's John Loder as an outlet for bands that did not necessarily fit on the Crass Records label.

Within a year or two complications set in... many rumours and stories but the end result was CONFLICT deciding to re-record most of this album in November 1985. It wasn't released however until 1994!

The cover artwork is a detail of Chairing the Member, the fourth plate from Hogarth's brilliant The Humours of an Election series (1755).
Engraving prints are on display at the Victoria & Albert, London.

Highly recommend reading about these painting, an excellent piece of English history and political satire. Here's Ian Hislop (Private Eye, etc) talking through the first in the series:
