Slow Crimes Tracklist. Slow Crimes Q&A.

The album's highlight track is probably "Brickyard," a rhythmically straightforward exploration of multi-layered percussion and guitar sounds and the kind of thing that really would have gotten Fred Frith going if Hodgkinson had brought in the charts during his Henry Cow days.

The Work were an English post-punk rock group, founded in 1980 by t/composer Tim Hodgkinson and guitarist/composer Bill Gilonis, with bass guitarist Mick Hobbs and drummer Rick Wilson. The band toured Europe in 1981 and 1982, and recorded their first album, Slow Crimes in 1982. After a tour of Japan later that year and releasing Live in Japan, the band split up. In 1989, the Work reformed to record Rubber Cage and performed throughout Europe between 1989 and 1994, releasing another album, See in 1992
