Thatcher On Acid - Curdled (1987)


Thatcher On Acid were an anarcho-postpunk band from the United Kingdom. They formed in Somerset during 1983. Their name is a satirical reference to former U.K. prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.

"Curdled" was released in 1987, using the occasional samples of media speech pasted into a variety of styles, from harsh, whirring amps and drums stuff to wistful acoustic rock.

It seems almost dead and buried now, sadly, but "agitpop" was once a genre, of bands (predominantly English) that combined post-punk rock in the spirit of Killing Joke, U.K. Decay, Theater of Hate, Banshees, and Gang of Four with scathing sociopolitical awareness. Maybe it went bye-bye with Thatcher's fall and Reagan's retirement, but to borrow a Dead Kennedys lyric, post-punk "kids today sit on their ass" (there are exceptions, of course).
