    If we're keeping this in the light of Crass, I don't think Penny Rimbaud would care much about the notion of selling out. Quoting from some interview:

    You should really listen to Crass in particular, then, since they were very experimental and artsy with their work, way beyond any of the other bands you mentioned. They were not just about music,...

    Whenever I think about Crass, I think about how much Crass I haven't listened to. One of the most creative, interesting and potent bands to ever come out of punk.
