Jesus And The Gospelfuckers - Kill The Police

Here's a band from Haarlem, Holland, who formed in 1977 after hearing the Sex Pistols, moved to a squat in Amsterdam, and over the course of the next 6 years or so seemed to cause controversy and mayhem aplenty. Playing an early brand of in your face, confrontational hardcore punk they found it hard to get gigs (they often had to play using other names just to get booked), violence often broke out when they did play. Jesus And The Gospelfuckers (or Jezus And The Gospelfuckers as it's sometimes spelt) released a demo cassette in 1982 and that was about it until a split album with Agent Orange (the Dutch Agent Orange featuring ex Gospelfuckers' members not the U.S. Agent Orange) appeared in 2002. Their frequent run ins with the authorities no doubt influenced the title of the song I'm posting below, this is Kill The Police........
