AS A TRIBUTE to founder member and bassist Jimi Maguire, who died in 2020, Grow Your Own Records are releasing a ‘reimagined’ version of The System’s The Warfare EP.
Originally released on Flux of Pink Indians’ Spiderleg label, the three tracks of the EP were recorded at Southern Studios, engineered by John Loder and produced by Crass’ Penny Rimbaud.
Retitled and repackaged as the Dogs of War EP, the new limited edition vinyl version comes in a new wraparound sleeve designed by John Moffet (from The Disturbed). The EP is also available in digital and streaming format.
The release can purchased from the Grow Your Own Records Bandcamp presence.
A re-pressing of The System’s classic Warfare EP, a combined project by myself [Garry Budd of Grow Your Own] and John Moffat in memory of Jimi Maguire who we sadly lost last year. All profits will go to the Spinal Unit Action Group. Limited to 250 copies, presented in Crass-style cover. Thanks to Overground Records. In loving memory of Jimi, miss you x
The release is in memory of Jimi Maguire and The System drummer Jimmy Brown (aka Spider).
More information about the release, together with a new interview with The System guitarist Andy Atom by David Arnold can be found on the Sanctus Propaganda site.
