Factory Records mogul Tony Wilson once declared that the worst band name ever belonged to one of one of his own, Crispy Ambulance. Admittedly, the name is dumb, and it is unfortunate because the music they made was much better then there moniker might suggests. Case in point: “The Presence,” taking from a 12 inch single released in 1981. It’s an epic 13 minutes of pure Post – punk dub, and intoxicating groove that seems never-ending. It’s featured as a bonus track on a forthcoming reissue of their debut album, The Plateau Phase, but it stands on its own as a fine slab of PIL–influenced dub-rock.
