AMEBIX - The Complete Demos (1978-1986)

Amebix, now recognized as one of the most influential ponderous bands ever, was born in England during the summer of 1978. Life was chaotic from start to finish for Amebix, because they were really living the lifestyle that their lyrics and image portrayed. Guitar player Stig writes on the gatefold of the posthumous album of live and studio recordings "The Power Remains" that "none of us signed off the dole in all the years we were together." Living in squats (abandoned buildings) and other unstable accommodations, eating out of the garbage, scamming and hacking out a living by any means possible, it's amazing that the band were able to amass equipment and practice on a somewhat regular enough basis to last for nine full years. Long Live Amebix!
