1992 was - at least as far as the mainstream and fringes went - pretty fucking awful in regards of music. pre-Suede, the Stone Roses had fucked off, the Happy Mondays were coked up, Blur were just finding their feet (really a pop sound, listening to Leisure again). not much in the way of British rock / guitar bands making an impact and the charts were getting to be full of things that sounded good when you were ripped on E at a rave (The Shamen, I am looking at you).

for a British band to release a double lp of angry rock as a debut was insanely ambitious, really.
