Part 1 Funeral Parade EP on 12" Vinyl + Zine 

Remastered Reissue of the Long Out-of-Print Deathrock 7"

Also includes Guitarist Mark Ferelli’s Horror Zine I...Paraworm

Part 1 formed in 1980 and were part of the original London anarcho-punk scene. During the early 1980s they played a number of gigs, often with Rudimentary Peni, who the band became associated with, as well as other acts operating around the London Anarchy Centres funded by Crass’ Bloody Revolutions 7". Part 1’s final gig (before reforming in 2013) was at London’s 100 Club in 1983 with Subhumans.

The band’s only vinyl release during this time was the Funeral Parade EP, released in a limited run of 300 in October 1982. As well as an anarcho-punk classic, the record is now regarded as a seminal Deathrock release – largely due to the dark, heavily flanged guitar work, morbid imagery, and anti-religious lyrical themes. Indeed, Part 1 have been described as “England’s ultimate cult deathrock band.” (CVLT Nation)

This very special reissue finally sees this lost classic receiving a long-deserved quality release: A remastered 12" vinyl in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with accompanying horror zine I...Paraworm, packed with never-seen text and unpublished artworks from the pen of guitarist Mark Ferelli, all contemporaneous to the 1982 release. 

In 2013, founding members Ferelli and Jake Baker (vocals), reformed the band with long-time admirer Chris Low (ex-Apostles, Oi Polloi, Political Asylum) on drums; later joined by David Barnett (ex-Adam & the Ants, Guernica, Lola Colt) on bass. Their first reformation show was at the Rebellion Festival that summer, 30 years after their last live performance. Since then, Part 1 have played a number of gigs to great acclaim and enthusiastic response with further releases and concerts scheduled for 2015.
