Mx-80 Sound

Crowd Control

Release Notes
  • Featuring never-before-seen photographs and insight from the original band members
  • Reissued for the first time since it’s original release in 1981

Ship to Shore PhonoCo. is proud to present the first ever vinyl reissue of MX-80 Sound’s Crowd Control.

Remastered from the original analog tapes by Peter Conheim, this album sounds as fresh (or possibly…fresher?) as it did in 1981. Containing a dizzying mix of free-jazz sax, thrashing guitars and absurdist lyricism, MX-80 Sound remains one of the great undiscovered bands of the late 70s/early 80s post-punk scene.
