Recording Date: April 18, 1987
Recording Location: The Brixton Academy, London, England

At the peak of their success and before they were banned across Britain, Conflict put together the Gathering of the 5000 at the Brixton Academy in London.

Thousands showed up, but the gig is mostly infamous for the police riot that followed, where 52 people were arrested and nine policeman injured.

There’s also this double live album recording, which is famous in its own right, because it has Conflict performing most of their hits along with a bunch of Crass songs, with Steve Ignorant on vocals. The sound quality isn’t great, though not bad either. There are some pauses for fighting, as well as a warning from Conflict to the crowd that there’s a wall of police waiting for them outside. Other songs which ended in fighting were cut from the record. Conflict plays Crass’ hits like “Do They Owe Us a Living?” and “Banned From the U.K.” fine, but other than as a historical document, this record is not essential.
