The X-Cretas were from Gillingham in Kent. I saw these guys play with Fallout and Anthrax at (I think) The Fulham Greyhound. I know I have a recording of Fallout and Anthrax. I'm not sure about X-Cretas. Sometimes I had to chose which bands to record with only limited battery lifespan. After the performance I bought this tape from Loz in the band. The insert says Side 1 was recorded 30/10/82 with Trev - vox, Loz - bass, Dee - guitar, Jess - drums. Side 2 recorded 6/2/82 with changes of Bill - guitar and Pete - drums. Great anarcho music with nice pogobility. Shame is it was one of those gigs where only a handful of people were there. Where did everyone go after '82? Here's the link to the tunes. I think I've mastered the art of getting them in one folder. Let me know if there aer problems.

Hi Pogel, this is Trev the vocalist of the X-Cretas. Just thought i'd say cheers for posting our demos as i haven't actually got a copy myself :-) Was racking my brains trying to think where the gig was that you refer to and, although a lot of that time is a bit of a blur to me now, i'm pretty sure we never played the Fulham Greyhound so i reckon it was probably the Pied Bull in Islington.

In case you're in the slightest bit interested, here's a bit of an update on what happened to the X-Cretas and Anthrax. Loz, who you mention, went on to join Anti Sect, while i joined Bug Central (with Roger and Ben Blasphemy from Gravesend) and i'm now in Active Slaughter. Anthrax have just released a comp of all their stuff.

Anyway, cheers again.
