Final Compilations & Remixes

Last Update: 2013/10/08

Status: Active
Bio: Started by Justin at a very young age, Final released several tapes in the early-to-mid '80s. The project was shelved to make way for Napalm Death, Head of David and Godflesh but was resurrected in 1995. With occasional help from Ben Green and Diarmuid Dalton, a number of releases came out over the next few years before a long hiatus (and near decade-long wait for Three).

Given a third life in 2006, Final issued a number of excellent releases afterwards and continues with more frequent assistance from Diarmuid Dalton. This iteration of Final has become one of Justin's most prolific projects.
