We Hate You South African Bastards! was the second album from the Irish band Microdisney. It was re-issued on CD with the title Love Your Enemies to reflect post-Apartheid South Africa. The album consists of early recordings of Microsdisney before they moved from Cork to London. Tracks 7 and 1 were the respective A- and B-sides of their first 7" single (Kabuki, # kamd2, 1982). Tracks 5 and 4 were the respective A- and B-sides of their second 7" single (Kabuki, # kamd4, 1983). Tracks 9-11 appear only on the CD re-issue and were originally released as the 12" EP In This World (Rough Trade, # RTT175, 1985). The rest were all previously unreleased songs. Track 8 ended in a lock groove on the original vinyl release.
