Vinyl LP pressing. The Feeding of the 5000 is the first album by Crass, originally released in 1978. The record came to be made when Pete Stennett, owner of Small Wonder Records, heard a demo that the band had recorded. Impressed by all of the material, he decided that rather than release a conventional single by the band, he would put all of their set onto an 18 track 12 inch EP. However problems were encountered when workers at the Irish pressing plant contracted to manufacture the disc refused to handle it due to the allegedly blasphemous content of the track "Reality Asylum" (referred to as "Asylum" on the record sleeve). The record was eventually released with this track removed and replaced by two minutes of silence, retitled "The Sound Of Free Speech." This incident also prompted Crass to set up their own record label in order to retain full editorial control as well as political and legal responsibility for their material, and "Reality Asylum" was shortly afterwards issued in a re-recorded and extended form as a 7" single.
