Charles Manson on Fierce Recordings

Fair play, if you’re going to start up a record label you may as well do it in style and reissue a Charles Manson LP. That’s what Swansea’s Fierce Recordings did in 1985. Thanks to them Manson rarity, The Love and Terror Cult, was once again available to a grateful world. What an impossibly cool debut. Two other Manson bootleg releases followed: the single, Sick City (see pic); and the cult leader's spooky version of Helter Skelter. Nice. You can read an excellent article on the subversive antics of Fierce Recordings here.
