Autopsy is a compilation album by 45 Grave, released in 1987 by Enigma Records. Recorded in the band's early days, it contains previously unreleased songs (many originally written and recorded by guitarist Paul B. Cutler's first band, the Consumers)) and alternate versions of tracks that were later rerecorded on the band's 1984 debut album, Sleep in Safety. Also included was the previously released 1981 single "Black Cross" and its B-side "Wax."
"Dream Hits", "Partytime" and "Surf Bat" are earlier versions of tracks that were later rerecorded for Sleep in Safety ("Dream Hits" was retitled "Dream Hits II" on that album).
"Riboflavin-Flavoured, Non-Carbonated, Polyunsaturated Blood" is a cover version of the 1964 novelty song originally performed by Don Hinson and the Rigamorticians; it was later rerecorded as "Riboflavin" on Sleep in Safety.
"Anti-Anti-Anti", "Concerned Citizen", "Consumers", "My Type", "Your Problem" and "Dream Hits" were originally written and recorded by the Consumers.
"Black Cross" is 45 Grave's debut single, released in 1981 on Goldar Records. It and B-side "Wax" were not featured on their 1984 debut album, Sleep in Safety, but were both later included on the Autopsy collection, and remained staples of their live performances.
