The untitled album by :$OVIET:FRANCE:, also known as 'hessian', 'the hessian album', 'the burlap album' or 'OK Boys', is a music album of recordings which became the second commercial release by the British avant-garde music group Zoviet France. Recorded in December 1981,[1] it was the first released in 1982 in 12 inch vinyl album format by the British record label, Red Rhino Records. Subsequently, a re-edited version was released in 1985 by Red Rhino Records, and then re-released by the British label Charrm in 12 inch vinyl album and compact disc (CD) formats (UK, 1990). The vinyl album versions are significant for being packaged in custom made screenprinted hessian (burlap) bags. The CD version is different from the vinyl versions in featuring an extended version of the last track, Ji Boys.
