The Third Reich 'N' Roll consists of two suites; "Swastikas On Parade" and "Hitler Was A Vegetarian". Both are 'semi-phonetic' interpretations of Top 40 Rock 'n' Roll from the 60s.
This is the 1st pressing (1976): 1000 copies - liner notes - orange carrot on front cover.
Some Copies Includes An Insert.
In 1980 a Third Reich 'N' Roll Collectors Box was produced in a limited edition of 30 copies of which 25 were released. These came with a hand pressed red marbled vinyl edition of the record with silk screened sleeve and labels, in a velvet-lined black wooden box with a sliding panel featuring hand-screened version of the cover art. Also enclosed are two signed and numbered lithographs by Irene Dogmatic. The entire box was enclosed in a drawstring bag made from a piece of Christo's work "Running Fence".
A censored version of the cover art was created for 2500 copies for export into Germany where Nazi symbolism is illegal.
