Dr & The Crippens

Postby Gwantommo » Sat Jul 02, 2011 5:49 pm

Not sure if anyone remembers these boys from Bristol, but they were on of the best UK Hardcore bands of the '80s and reknowned for the odd exploding cabbage or two at the gigs.

I've been hunting for any of their LP's on MP3 etc for ages - anyone able to help?

my buddy got some of their stuff from a mail order company back in the day called Ergot records - pretty sure it no longer operates but...

Skate -bored was the intense degree song from the flex. (skateboard summer sampler) I once saw another band with members of the crippins in it, krull or krill or something, they were blowing up veg which made for great fun to watch.

Now you're talking, this my sort of thing!

That Summer Sampler from Skateboard! mag is what got me into the music I'm still into today. I then bought the North Atlantic Noise Attack LP that was always advertised in Skateboard!

As Corker proved there's stuff on You Tube. Here's a Doctor and the Crippens EP

I always wanted that on LP, but had to make do with having it copied off a mate onto a good old TDK 90.

That was a good little era for hardcore/thrash in the uk - I saw Napalm Death play a community centre in Telford back then, but my faves were the slightly more tuneful Jailcell Recipes :)

That sampler pretty much got me into that kind of music too, I was already listening to death metal so liked napalm and carcass but had never heard stuff like crippins , jailcell, sink etc. I still have and listen to that kind of stuff but was a little young to see alot of those band in there hey day, not to mention i lived in a small town. I just got the worn down single from jailcell the other day to complete my colection . Great band.

I've still got my Summer Sampler but somehow along the way it got a crease in it.

Well at least I can still listen to it here

Dr. And The Crippens were awesome. I saw them live in Ipswich around 1988 or 89, and it was a great night. Exploding cabbages man! Scared the shit out of me when the first one went off.... Ipswich used to have loads of hardcore shows back in the late 80's. Sadly, nothing of the sort happens here now.
