(courtesy of This Is Punk Rock)Add this to the long list of records that has darkened my doorstep, only to be quickly flipped in order to pay the rent. I was re-reading Choosing Death, and I got to the part where Digby Pearson started describing Heresy. "Heresy were friends of mine and I would always give them the fastest hardcore band tape that I would trade at the time, and (drummer) Steve (Charlesworth) would try to play faster than that." I love shit like that. Kids playing fast and fucked up just for the sake of it. If I ever was in a band, it's probably sound a lot like this.
Never Healed was the first release from Heresy, and the first recording released on Earache Records. It's a great snapshot of not only where the UK HC scene was circa '85, but also provides insight as to the well from which grindcore would spring shortly thereafter. The always excellent Boss Tuneage Records in the UK reissued the entire Heresy catalog in 2006 & 2007. If you're looking to spend a few bux on early Heresy, check out 1985-1987.
