According to the band: "This recording is guaranteed 100% racist, sexist, homophobic, straight edge, carniverous, New York hardcore free! oh dear, that might make the sales drop". Sore Throat were a short lived yet important band in the later 80's UK grindcore, noisecore, hardcore and punk movement which featured members of Doom, Deviated Instinct and other crust punk bands. Sore Throat formed in 1987 in Yorkshire, UK as a crust punk, hardcore punk, and grindcore act with the initial line up as Rich Militia (vocals), Brian "Bri" Talbot (guitar), John Doom (bass) and Nick Royles (drums). They are known as one of the first bands to give rise to and play in the style of "noisecore". Though now largely forgotten, they were a key part of the hardcore/grindcore movement of the mid-late 1980s in the United Kingdom and were commonly known for their "we don't fucking care" attitude, harsh humour and mockery in their music about other contemporary bands and society. They were sometimes seen as a parody band and a drunk political punk band. They were also one of the first bands to heavily incorporate samples in their music.
