We have all been busy with
various different activities but have found time to do some more

for our long talked about debut LP. So now the next challenge
is finding a time when we are all available to record it…
In the meantime we have a few
gigs confirmed including the first day of this year’s Punx
Picnic in Brighton on Friday 19th April. More details on this
and more on the gig page.
One more update before the

on Friday 24/08/12 filling in for Flatpig who can't make it. We're
not on the flyer but we will be there so come and say hello.
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.
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.
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.
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.
||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
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.
||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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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...
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
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
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.
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...
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
that we are in Nottingham in June and Birmingham in July more
details on the Gigs page.
||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
to part of the film Stokey Punks made in 1995 featuring a
classic performance from Coitus, it made us smile...up the punx.
||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
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.
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.
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...

but both gigs are still going ahead both with great line-ups please
see the gigs page for details.
Gigs added in Brighton, Bristol
with Horror(ESP) and Southampton.
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...
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.

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! Fast, raw, savage
metallic hardcore/crustcore and easily both the best recording
and material we have done to date. We are now waiting the finished
item, which should be with us in early Feb.
On the gig front we have a few gigs lined up in Feb and March,
please note the Discharge gig in Brighton has now moved to April

In the near future we will be publishing details of a short European
Tour we are in the process of planning for next year. The new
7’’ has been sent for press and more details will

A quick update on the upcoming
gigs, unfortunately the gig in London on 05/12/08 has been cancelled
by the promoter. We'll be back up in London in the New Year and
we'll post the details once we have them. The next gigs are with
GBH in Brighton on 06/12/08 followed by Southampton on the 14/12/08.
We are also sorting out a trip up to Scotland in the New Year
'War With No End' is almost
completed and we will be publishing more details on this space
very soon. As previously mentioned it’s coming together
well and sounding vicious but as ever it always takes longer than
anticipated to complete because of everyone’s other commitments.
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.
During September we have been
busy recording the next 7''. The recording is now complete so
it's now just a case of mixing. We are all very pleased with the
results so far.
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.
Thanks to everyone who came
to the Fuk Reading gig over the Bank Holiday weekend and gave
us such a great reception, another eventful Reknaw production
so thanks to Risky, Bev and Austen for their efforts.
Since the last update we have been busy working on finishing new
material for the next 7''. We are recording in September and are
all excited with the songs so far, no dramatic changes just more
of the same - but better! 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.
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
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.
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!
||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...
||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
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.
||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,
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.
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.
||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,
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
||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.
||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
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
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
Thanks to everyone that came
to Snottingham and Scumfest gigs and to the promoters for inviting
us to play and making it happen. Also apologies to anyone who
tried to come to the Streatham gig it was unfortunately cancelled
at late notice by the promoters SDLC as there was a problem with
the venue. 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.
We have now sold out of the 'Same
Shit, Different Day' compilation 7''. If you are looking for a
copy try Whole In The Head as they may have some left. There are
still some t-shirts and the new ‘Liberation’ 7’’
available please e-mail for details.
The Liberation 7’’ is now out and
is available for £2.50 at gigs or £3.00 postpaid in
the UK. Overseas enquiries please e-mail for details. It is also
available wholesale for distros from both Inflammable Material
and Squawk Records, once again please e-mail for details. We are
very pleased with the whole package including the songs, recording,
and the artwork so please check it out.

up in June, please see the flyers here for Snottingham
and here for
Scumfest . We are also playing in Streatham on the 23/06/07
so please have a look on the gigs page if you’re interested.
We had a great time on the tour
with Visions Of War in France. A big thanks to them and our respective
drivers, Mermouille and Nick for efforts above and beyond the
call of duty. 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!
Firstly some gig news, the
French mini tour with Visions of War has stabilised with a couple
of changes, please see the gig pages for details.Also Nottingham

site, more details next time, or ask your local DIY punk rock
distro to get some in!
