Precautions Essentielles Pour La Bonne #1, 1981

PLEASE, WE SAY TO YOU NOW, 
DO NOT ACCEPT THOSE THINGS, 
ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAPPEN EVERYDAY 
AND SEEM NATURAL, 
FOR IN THESE TIMES OF PLANNED CONFUSION 
AND DELIBERATE VIOLENCE, 
WHEN BLOOD RUNS AND MEN ARE INHUMAN TO MEN, NOTHING MUST BE CALLED NATURAL, 
SO THAT NOTHING SHALL REMAIN UNCHANGED

Ok ok so I’ve used that quote before – but boy does it bear repeating. Inhumans, with their craven bleating press-pack-propagandists obediently at heel, have hidden the ‘deliberate violence’, cooked the books on their wholesale savagery, cranked-up the ‘newspeak’ mangle and fashioned lofty conceits to enable their filthy trade: ‘responsibility to protect’ and ‘humanitarian interventionism’ play loud to a somnambulant populace at large. Right, so who’s next? Oh hang on - we’ve not done for Syria yet. Nothing personal you understand – it really is just business. Anyway, I hope your reading of Precautions Essentielles Pour La Bonne doesn’t leave you as seething as mine just did me. Credit to Julian Vicious, Dan, Pete, Nick, Mark and Ben for delivering: top flight interviews with The Diagram Brothers, Poison Girls and Zoundz; live reviews of Flux of Pink Indians/Zoundz at the Moonlight Club, Funeral Directors/Waxwork Dummies/FoPI at Chats Palace, Six Minute War/FoPI/Eraserhead/Sinyx/Dialectics at Action Space (Anti Vivisection Benefit); spleen venting on advertisements, war, selling out and the commodification of Sid; appraisals of SMW/Theatre of Hate 7”s and FoPI’s tape. Sprinkled liberally with collage and Crass’ lyrics. A corker I tell ya!

Hi Chris - thanks for the heads-up - I've refreshed the link but it still looks a bit iffy to me - when I go to download it the download time is about 7 hours! My broadband is slow - but not that slow. Pls let me know if it works for you. I'll try reuploading the pdf to mediafire, see if that improves it.

All the best

It was written by the original members of The Apostles.

Yes, it's written by the origianl members Julian Portinari (bass), Dan McIntyre (drums), Pete Bynghall (guitar) and Bill Corbett (vocals): the line-up mentioned in the article in Paroxysm Fear fanzine (written by Mark Gubb, the drummer of Flack)...After Bill left, Andy Martin joined and they played together until the end of 1981/very early 1982...Why do I remember all this rubbish?

: ) because it matters Nic. To some it may be trivia but I can't get enough of the details - the details prompt memories from others = more detail. Keep it coming lad. I'll be sure to update the post. Cheers

All the best
