Thanks to everyone who has contacted us offering gigs recently, we are still active but the logisitics /realities of organising a bunch of old punx who should know better with work/family commitments can sometimes mean we can't do everything we are offered. However we really appreciate the interest and understanding of our, far from unique position, so please keep the offers coming as we do try and do as much as we can.

 

06/05/12

Thanks to everyone that came to our recent gigs in Brittany and a big thank you to Andy /Christine for organising the gigs and Len for driving. We played some new songs, had a drink or two, made some new friends and generally had a blast!

Also thanks to all of the organisers of the Brighton Punx Picnic, we played the Friday and it had an interesting mix of bands with a sold out and up for it crowd. We won't be playing for a few months during the summer, we ain't a sunshine and flowers in your hair kinda band.... but we'll be back in the Autumn.

 

30/03/12

It's been a while since we had updated the site with any news so it's good to be able to announce both a new tour and a one off appearance at the Brighton Punx Picnic at the end of April. We are off to Brittany in France for 4 gigs on the 04/04/12. We'll be road testing a lot of the new material we have been writing with a view to recording for our long delayed debut LP. The tour has been organised by our friends The Flue Sniffers who we'll be touring with. Please see the gig pages for details.

Closer to home we are playing the 20/04/12 the Friday night of this year’s Brighton Punx Picnic with Oi Polloi amongst others, flyer here. Once again details on the gig pages.

We have limited copies of the split 7'' with Deportation featuring two previously unreleased Terror tracks and five by Deportation. It's available for £3.00 from us at gigs or £4.00 ppd UK /£5.00 ppd Europe. Anybody anywhere else in the world please contact us and we'll work something out for postage. In mainland Europe it'll be cheaper to pick it up straight from Radical HC records (get in touch with them at bradzirkle at hotmail dot com) who put it out.

 

25/10/11

One more update before our tour, we are playing what looks like will be the last gig at the Deathdrop in London on 05th Nov. It's an awesome line up with Last Legion Alive, Warprayer and Agnosy, please get down there for 8pm for doors, flyer here.

 

18/10/11 Once again a slightly overdue update but we have lots of news including a new record and a tour. Since the last update we have been reasonably busy by our relaxed standards, including playing a few UK gigs in Brum, Northampton , Brighton and London and have continued to write new material. The next recording we will be doing is for our debut LP and will be the first our new bass player Dave will have had the opportunity to play on, more news on that later in the year.

As mentioned last month we are pleased to announce that we have a split single w/ Deportation coming out on Radical HC records from Belgium at the end of Oct. Our side has 2 tracks 'Slaves to Wealth' a relentless raging slab of metallic crust and our set closer for a while plus the eco-themed 'Black Storm'. Both songs were recorded in 30/03/10 with the original line-up just prior to Ad leaving us to go to emigrate to Oz. Originally these were for different projects, the aborted Finnish 6 band split and a split with Visions of War so we are pleased they are finally getting out. We still have two finished tracks in the vaults from the same session that may see the light someday, a riposte to The present Tory administration in the UK called 'Them and Us' and a full on cover of Discharge’s ‘Protest and Survive'.

To celebrate the 7'' release we are doing a small 5 date mini tour with Deportation taking in Belgium, Holland and Germany. The tour starts in Liege on the 26th and finishes in Leuven on the 30th, please see the gigs page for more details. We have toured together before and always had a blast so check it out if you're near any of these towns. Plus it’ll be no shock to learn then that we will have the new 7'' for sale with us at these gigs and then will have a limited amount for mail order from this site and at future gigs in our distro. Get in touch if you want one.


30/05/11 The main news this month is we are pleased to announce that we have a split release with our friends in Deportation coming out in a couple of months on Radical Hardcore Records. We are using a couple of the unreleased tracks we recorded prior to Adam leaving.

'Slaves to Wealth' is a song we have been playing as a set closer for a couple of years now and 'Black Storm’ is a shorter Hardcore number. You can find the lyrics and an explanation of what the songs are about on the Lyrics page. Stiv Visions of War has done some awesome artwork for our side of the split, which we'll put up here soon, and it pretty much encapsulates what the song is about...

More info on this once we have it, we will definitely have a limited number of copies for sale at gigs or otherwise it'll be available from the label, distros, etc.

To end a big thank you to everyone who organised, helped or came to one of the gigs on our mini tour with Deportation last month it's always good to meet friends old and new. Our next gig is in Birmingham on the 11/06/11 followed by the Northampton Punx Picnic on the 25/06/11.

 

28/04/11

The Brighton gig was a blast so we are really looking forward to the mini tour with Deportation in a couple of weeks starting in London on the 12th May and then taking in Bristol, Edinburgh and Derby, venue and date details on the gigs page. Come out and say hello if we’re anywhere near you. As an added incentive, as if you needed one, is we’ll have the Missing the Point distro with us for all the record collectors...


Finally we have got a couple more of gigs confirmed including the inaugural Brighton Punx Picnic and a return to the Fuk Redding festival, more details on the gigs page.

 

31/03/11

The first gig with the new line up in Notts was a success so we are looking forward to playing again in a couple of weeks at first hometown gig in a year. If you're anywhere near Brighton on April the 17th come down listen to a right old fuckin' racket and have a drink with us at the Cowley Club...

We have been busy organising some gigs with Deportation from Holland and will be doing a mini UK tour in May (well England plus one in Scotland really...) details on the gig page.

 

17/02/11

The main news for us is that we can announce that we now have now a new bassist, the thunder god that is Dave Charge! Dave is an old friend of the band and has driven us on tour before so he knows what he’s letting himself in for. We have been busy rehearsing and after a few months of playing as a 4 piece we are now ready to start gigging as a 5 piece again with Neal back on guitar.

Our first gig with the new line up is in Nottingham on Friday 4th March, flyer here, plus we’re also playing our first hometown gig in over a year with the recently reformed Hellbastard among others on Sunday the 17th April at the Cowley Club. More details on these on the gig pages.

Lastly there is some well filmed footage of us from Scumfest in December is up on you tube, the whole gig is up there in 3 parts just follow this link to the first part and the others follow on.

23/12/10

Cheers to Si and the Scumfest crew for a great gig that was not only a lot of fun but raised awareness and funds for the Gary Critchley campaign see link below. The gig is up on you tube see the link here for the first part of our set, it’s in 3 parts with links to the other bands sets. Also thanks to Rich for having us over to Southampton for our annual appearance.


We are still busy finishing writing for our LP and organising a couple of other projects about which we will have more details in the New Year. We are also in the process of setting up some gigs for next year which will be posted here once we have the details confirmed.


Lastly thanks to everyone that has come to see us, organised a gig, fed us, bought us a drink, given us a place to stay, helped out in anyway, bought any of our records etc or just come up and said hello this year. As ever your support is appreciated and makes playing in the band much more fun. See you all next year...

 

16/11/10

Thanks to everyone who organised, helped or came to one of the gigs on our mini tour with Deportation over last weekend particulary Joe and all at De Onderbroek, all at De Plu, all at Den BarBaar, not forgeting Brad and Deportation for their hospitaltity. Apologies to anyone that wanted to see the Gronigen gig it was cancelled at the last moment due to Police enforced noise restrictions at the Crowbar, forcing them to supend live music for now. Maybe next time...

We have added some confirmed gigs in Dec, details on the gig page. First up is the Scumfest crew's Winterfest, flyer front and detailed back here. All profits are to benefit the Justice for Gary Critchley campaign. In brief campaigners are fighting to clear the name of Gary Critchley, originally sentenced in 1981 with a recommendation that he should serve ‘no more than 8-9 years’ Gary has spent 30 years in prison. No longer jailed in relation to the original – and very unsafe – conviction Gary is now detained as a result of attempts on his own life, to assess whether he as a personality disorder and if so how he will be ‘looked after’ within the system. Gary has become somewhat of a political prisoner: being punished over and over by a retributive system. Please see the Gary Critchley Justice Campaign's website here for full details on the campaign and of Gary's case.

 

27/10/10

Another long overdue update, contrary to how it might appear we have been busy with some band related activity over the last 3 months or so! Firstly we have mixed the final recording we did with Ad and the first of those tracks, 'Black Storm', is our contribution to a multi split single being compiled by Jaani from Diskelma on a Finnish label, more info on that soon.

We have also been busy writing for our debut LP that we are planning to record later this year. We will continue writing but have so far completed a number of songs that will hopefully form the basis for the full length album in the near future, suffice to say we are really excited with the sound and direction of the new material.

Finally we have a short mini-tour of Belgium/Holland with Deportation from the 11-14/11/10 confirmed with the dates and details on the gig pages. We'll be playing a new set, road testing the new songs and playing all your favourites, all killer no filler just pure impact! Should be a blast...

 

30/07/10

Unfortunately we have had to cancel playing the Subhumans gig we had listed in Brighton on the 10/08/10, but I’m sure we'll be playing Brighton again...


We have also been listed on some posters as playing The Fuk Reading gig up in London on the 27/08/10 but whilst we were asked to play it we had confirmed we could not do it back in May. We have spoken to Risky and the Reknaw crew and they have apologised for the mix up and removed us from the new posters, etc. Sorry to anyone that was looking forward to seeing us, we will be back up in London soon for sure. However, even though we aren't playing it looks like a good gig see the flyer for details.


We are in the process of finalising some gigs at the moment and will post them on the site once we have the confirmed details.


21/06/10

Thanks to Bloody Kev for the recent gig in London which was fun, we are all enjoying playing as a four piece and it's still sounding tight and powerful. We are still looking to get our new bass player gigging by the end of the year but in the meantime we can still deliver a right fuckin' racket if required! The next gig for us is this weekend at the Nottingham Punks Picnic, flyer with details here.

 

31/05/10

Just a quick update this month to confirm we aren't dead! Played our first couple of gigs as a 4 piece this month and both were great fun. Thanks to everyone who came and especially Steve and JJ for sorting them out. Next up is a last minute gig up in London on the 03/06/10 with Palm from Japan, details on the gig page.

We have finshed the last recording we did and just need to find a few hours to do the final mix. Sounds awesome...

 

28/04/10

Thanks to everyone who came to Ad’s farewell gig in Brighton a couple of weeks back, particularly all those that travelled, played or helped with running the gig. It was a busy night with a great atmosphere and all the bands put in great sets. We managed to pull off a probably never to repeated cover of ‘Second coming’ by ‘Battalion of Saints’ that Ad had been wanting to do for a few years to add to the occasion! All in all a great send off. Now we just need to get our new bassist up to speed...


We are planning to finish the recording we started recently this month and to continue to get the songs ready for our LP. Plus we have gigs coming up over the next few months as listed on the gig page so plenty to keep us busy. As ever if you are interested in putting us on please get in touch, unfortunately we can’t do everything we are offered but we’ll always try and accommodate as far as we can.


Lastly a bit of bad news, the Reknaw sound system who have put us on countless times and are stalwarts of the London punk scene have had a massive setback in losing their van/rig in a fire. There are a number of benefits to keep Reknaw running, details at the Reknaw site here. Reknaw have always supported the underground DIY punk scene and are one of the UK's longest running free party systems so please support them now they need our help.


25/03/10

The big news this month is that Adam our bass player is moving to Australia which naturally means he'll no longer be playing for us. Ad's swansong prior to his departure for Oz will be one last gig in Brighton next month on the 11/04/10. We've made it into a bit of an party with some of the best Hardcore bands in the UK right now, take a look at the flyer, plus thanks to Sned and a happy coincidence we've got Bradford’s leading NWOBHM revivalists Conquest Of Steel to finish the evening in over the top trad. metal style.

As mentioned last time we are in the studio this weekend to record a couple of tracks for projects we have been asked to contribute to. This will include a cover of Discharge's 'Protest and Survive' which was one of the first tunes we jammed on so a fitting coda for the end of an era for us. Once these are completed we will continue writing the songs for our debut LP that we are planning to record later this year.

In the meantime we are continuing to gig and will play as a four piece with Neal taking over bass duties until we have a new bass player gig ready. We have the first one with the UK Subs in Hastings on May 7th. We are also playing the North London Punks Picnic on Friday 21/05/10, flyer here. Following that we are in Nottingham in June and Birmingham in July more details on the Gigs page.

 

18/02/10 First off thanks to the Death Drop crew for an awesome gig there last month. The next day in Brum was fun too although maybe a few too many bands and too little organisation... Next up for us are a couple of gigs in March. First up is in London with Broken Bones, flyer here and the next night we're in Boston, details on the gigs page and myspace. We are also recording in March and the new songs range stylistically from the metal style tracks on War with No End 7' to Totalitar style fast hardcore tunes to keep it interesting.

On a sad note on 17th Nov 2009 Skinny formerly of the London punk band Coitus died. As a way of a tribute to Skinny here is a link to part of the film Stokey Punks made in 1995 featuring a classic performance from Coitus, it made us smile...up the punx.

 

06/01/10 Happy New Year to all. To kick-start the year for the 'terror we have a couple of potentially great gigs coming up this month. On Friday 22/01/10 we are playing in London with Visions of War at the one year anniversary of the Dewdrop squat, flyer with full line-up and details here. The following day, 23/01/10 we are both playing the Punks Alive festival in Birmingham with a amazing number of bands, attached is the running order. The festival is over 3 days with all sorts of Punk genres represented so it should be interesting and looks end up being a messy weekend.

We have been busy writing new material for both a pre-dominantly Finnish 7''compilation split (incl. Diskelma, Khatarina) and our first LP. As we have tended to release 7''s over the last few years we wanted to spend some time preparing and put a full length LP. We will continue to write and look to record later in the year and will post updates for anyone interested here. In the meantime we are also organising some more gigs for the spring details to be posted here once they are known.

 

17/12/10

Thanks to everyone that has come to see us, organised a gig, fed us, bought us a drink, given us a place to stay, helped out in anyway, bought any of our records etc or just come up and said hello this year. As ever your support is appreciated and makes playing in the band much more fun. See you all next year.

 

15/11/09

We are presently starting to write for an album and have already played a couple of the new songs at recent gigs. We will being playing some more new material at the Southampton gig in December which is our last gig of the year. We have also confirmed a gig in London on the 22/01/10 with Visions Of War the day before the Punks alive festival in Birmingham. Looks like it'll be a good weekend...

 

20/10/09

12/09/09

Gigs added in Brighton, Bristol with Horror(ESP) and Southampton.

 

21/08/09

Firstly an apology that this site has not been kept up to date for a couple of months due to technical problems with our hosting. The infrequent updates that were posted were to our old host were not uploaded correctly so were never visible. We have now moved to a new host to rectify this problem. Additionally this site will be kept up to date on a regular basis.

We will be be playing the Punks alive festival up in Birmingham in January of next year with some great bands incl. Hellkrusher, Visions of War, Police Bastard, Beginning of the End etc, other bands and details on the flyer. Despite us and the above bands all coming from the harder end of the spectrum it is a eclectic bill over the 3 days so probablly something for every punk there...

 

26/07/09

Unfortunately the promoter has had to cancel the gig in Norwich on the 01/08/09 so apologies to anyone who was looking to come along. We are looking to reschedule a gig up there and will update the site when we know when.

On a more positve note we have been asked to contribute a track to the the upcoming Angry scenes 4 compilation which is a benefit for the family of the late Trogg from Contempt. Other bands include Subhumans, Restarts, Inner Terrestials and many more. Further details when we have them.

29/01/09

Lots of interesting news items in this month’s update. We have had the test pressings back for 'War with No End' and it sounds brutal!

31/10/08

We have confirmed a few more gigs between now and Xmas in Bristol, London, Brighton and Southampton please see the gigs page for details and come along and say hello if you can
.

 

29/09/08

The 7'' will be entitled 'War With No End' and it'll consist of four new raging tracks. It's already sounding brutal and once we have the mix finished we are confident it'll be the best thing we have done, but then we would say that... more news on the next update.

Other news is that we have some more gigs confirmed, details on the gigs page. Check out the flyer for London on the 17/09/08.

No fuss, no mess just pure impact... more information when we have actually recorded the songs.


We have some more gigs confirmed which are on the gigs page, we are also organising a couple more. We unfortunately had to turn down a few gigs and events recently due to prior commitments but please still get in touch if you are interested in us playing as we always try and work something out if at all possible.

 

30/06/08

Another long overdue update as I had far more interesting things to do! We have played some great gigs recently. Particularly fun were the 3 we did with Diskelma who are a great band - check out their new 'Fun Is Over' LP. We have a few more gigs confirmed including playing the Saturday of the Fuk Reading festival on the 23/08/08 please see the gig page for details.


The slow grinding march to the recording studio continues...but the good news is we have 5 raging new tracks that are ready to be recorded. Once we have finished working on a couple more we will be looking to get into the studio before the end of the summer, it's sounding good and all being well we will be releasing a new 7'' before the year is out.


‘Black Ways Of War’ from the Liberation 7’’ is featured on the Angry Scenes 3 compilation CD please see here for further details. We have a few of these CD's available so send us e-mail if you are interested.


At some point in the near future in the spirit of direct DIY you will be able to buy all our releases plus T-shirts, etc direct from us on this site but in the meantime please e-mail us and we'll sort something out, cheers.

 

28/04/08

We've have been busy rehearsing and continuing to write some new material. The tracks are sounding brutal and we are going to be playing some of it at the upcoming gigs. Unfortunately we are not playing London on the 03/05/08 but will be playing the Scumfest benefit gig on the 09/05/08. After that we have some gigs with the mighty Diskelma from Finland, sadly due to work /life we can't do the whole tour but we are playing the first weekend with them. Also we will be playing at the Snottingham Punk Crime Capital, as the Nottingham punx picnic is now called, in June with Cress and Oi Polloi amongst others check out the website for details, it looks like a great bill. See the gigs page for details.

We now have new T-shirts incl. a new double-sided Liberation design with Sonia's awesome artwork on the front and back. We also have more of the original Cop design from the demo/7'' cover. Also we have a variety of patches. Pictures up on the site soon. If you want one T-shirts are £6.00 + P&P. Drop us a line and we'll work something out. The shopping cart thing is on hold at the moment so it’s the old fashioned way all the way!

 


19/03/08 Thanks to everyone that came to the recent gigs in Nottingham, Southampton and the Discharge gig in Brighton. All were fun in their own way and it was good to see friends old and new. We are looking forward to the Seein'Red gig in Brighton on the 22/03/08 which is also a Birthday celebration for Ralf, a good friend of ours (everybody's?!?), with a few other quality bands, see the gig page for full details.

Upcoming gigs confirmed include the North London Punks Picnic. It's a 4-day event 29/05/08 to 01/06/8 that is Thurs. to Sun. and we are playing on Fri. night. Checkout their website for more details on the event, there are some awesome bands playing over the festival which will raise funds for some worthy causes. We were also asked to play the Faslane peace camp at their Punks Picnic on 02-04/05/08, details here, but unfortunately we cannot do it. The event is attracting attention to the long running protest at Faslane Naval Base, plus a Beltane celebration in itself. Naturally it's worth supporting if you can and we are disappointed we can't make it.

There are some major updates on the way on the website in the near future including a link to enable online purchasing of all our releases, etc. plus other quality DIY punk stuff from the distro.

We are also still continuing to work on new material for a couple of upcoming releases. It all does seem to take a lot longer than you'd think...

 

07/02/08 Thanks to everyone that organised our recent gigs in Bristol, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow and all those who came along. In particular Si and Kate, Will and Andy Scoot, whose efforts are all much appreciated. We are playing a anti fascist benefit in Nottingham on Saturday 09/02/08, with Liberty amongst others so please come along and support it if you are anywhere nearby. We have also confirmed gigs in Southampton, Brighton (with Discharge and Seein' Red!) and London. Please click on the links or see the gig pages for full details.


We have almost sold out of T-shirts and will be printing more plus some with a new design very soon, details on here once we have them. We are continuing to write for the next 7'' and will be recording once we have a few more tracks finished.

 

 

11/01/08 To kick off the New Year we are playing a long weekend up north this month, before anyone complains remember we're in Brighton so almost everywhere in the UK is north to us! It is starting on the 25/01/08 in Birmingham, 26/01/08 Newcastle and the 27/01/08 in Glasgow, click on the links for flyers. We also have gigs coming up in Bristol, Nottingham, Southampton and Brighton over the next couple of months.

Other news is that we are working on recording another 7''. We have some new material written that we'll be playing alongside the old tunes at the upcoming gigs and we are working on some more at the moment. We are looking at recording sometime in the next few months.

In the meantime we still have copies of both the self/titled and Liberation 7''s but unfortunately have sold out of the compilation 7''. We also still have a limited number of the Angry Scenes compilation CD, and the CDR demo. Please e-mail for details if you’re interested.


 

13/12/07

Another long overdue update, firstly the Southampton gig on Sunday 16/12/07 has been moved to a different venue, details on the gigs page. Regrettably we have had to pull out of the Boston gig on Dec. 22/12/07 but it is still going ahead so if you were going go along anyway and check out Whole In The Head.

We now have copies of the self-titled 7'' released on Tadpole and it’s available from us for sale/trade. We think the demo tracks sound even better on the vinyl so if you liked the CDR demo spoil yourself and get a copy, we don't think you’ll be disappointed!

We are in the process of arranging some more UK dates and looking to go back to mainland Europe in the Spring, probably Holland, Germany and maybe Belgium. We also will be back in the studio in the New Year to record a new 7’’ and some tracks for some other projects. We’ll publish more news as these plans slowly take shape.


 

16/10/07 We've had the test pressings for the Tadpole 7'' back and they sound awesome, the vinyl gives it more bottom end than on the orginal CDR so we are pleased so far! We will have copies for sale/trade very soon and it'll be announced on here. The Inepsy gig/party in Brighton was utter chaos and enjoyed by everyone, so thanks to everyone who helped out and made it happen, never again...!

Unfortunately the Born/Dead gig in Boston on 14/10/07 was cancelled but we are playing in Boston on the 22/12/07. We have also got gigs lined up in Portsmouth, London, Southampton and Glasgow in the next few months, check the gig pages for details. Our next gig is with Born/Dead in Brighton on the 26/10/07

 

11/09/07 The Inepsy gig in Brighton is at Studio 284 on Wednesday 12/09/07,details on the flyer. It's going to be a late one but looks like it'll be fun. We have also confirmed gigs with Born/Dead in Boston and Brighton. Please see the Gig page for details.
30/08/07 To start this overdue update we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to the recent Brighton gig we put on, War All The Time and Whole In the Head both played blinding sets and a good drunk punk fuckin' rock evening was had by all. Also thanks to Nath and Luke for putting us on in Southampton at the end of June with the Subhumans and SH57, another blinding gig!

We are in the process of organising some more gigs that will be posted on the gigs page as they become confirmed. To kick it off we are playing in Brighton with Inepsy and SH57 on the 12/09/07 the venue tbc.

As previously mentioned Darren from Tadpole Records is releasing our 5 track demo CDR on 7'' vinyl. This is definitely going ahead and will be a similar package, same tracks and artwork, etc, but with some additional new artwork on the back of the sleeve as we now have more space to be creative with! It should be avaliable sometime next month or so and we will have some copies for sale. We are taking pre-orders now and the price will be £3.00 ppd or £2.50 at gigs. If you are interested in wholesale/trade please get in touch with us or contact Darren at Tadpole and we can work something out.

Finally it is with regret we have to share some sad news. Stephane Adamski from Squawk Records who helped put out our recent single was found dead last week. We met as Adam got in touch with us as he loved our demo and asked if he could get get involved if we were releasing anything. He subsequently helped us out because of a shared passion for the message and music of the punk/DIY scene. He was one of the good guys. Our sympathies and regrets are with Stephane's (Adam's) family and friends.

 

27/06/07

Thanks to everyone that came to Snottingham and Scumfest gigs and to the promoters for inviting us to play and making it happen.

Next gig is with the Subhumans in Southampton on the 28/06/07, details on the gig page.

We are really pleased that Tadpole records have offered to put out our first demo as a 7''. It'll have all the songs, artwork from the CDR plus a slightly reworked cover. This should be out at some point over the summer. We also have a few other things planned for the later in the year and naturally will publish the details here as soon as they are confirmed.

Also cheers to all the gig promoters for looking after us and all the other bands and everyone who came to the gigs, it was much appreciated and we had a blast. The final damage was a blown Marshall amp head, a fucked tuner and a destroyed cab not bad going in 5 days!
