This is another one of those classical anarcho-punk bands from beginning of the 80's. Their "Let The Tribe Increase" was released in 1982 by All The Madmen Records. You can find info on them on Kill From The Heart and Wikipedia.

Originally released back in 1982 by Rough Trade this is a Rugger Bugger/GAP Recordings reissue of their album + the singles. Zounds were a late discovery for me cos before this reissue I wasn't able to get any of their stuff. I knew they existed by reading zines and listening to older punks stories so I was quite excited when I bought this release and I wasn't wrong. Lyrics are great, and the music is very good anarcho-punk with dark atmosphere. If you want to know more about them there is a Zounds web page and there's a new reissue of this release available from Active Distribution.

James Brook & Ecowar

James Brook is a guy from Australia. I was first introduced to his music and "Resist Is To Win" CD by MarkoS (In Medas Res fanzine) and ripped it cos I liked what I heard (didn't scan the covers – sorry!). On this release he sounds like a punk version of Billy Bragg, dealing with subjects like politics, squatting, sex, wandering around… Ecowar are James Brook with Ernie, a girl from Netherlands (Holland). I saw Ecowar playing in a place called Attack in Zagreb, back in 1998. At that gig I bought their self-titled CD I've put up in this post. Both James Brook and Ecowar have web sites so you can check them here: James Brook, Ecowar.

What's there to say about Crass? I love them, they changed my life and stuff like that, I suppose… When I first heard them, it was while I was in high school, sometime back in 1990-1991. Vedran K. borrowed their "The Feeding Of The 5000" LP from a guy called Mihun, and we listened to it quite excitedly. They were something different from bands like The Exploited, U.K. Subs, G.B.H., various Oi!/punk bands that we listened to at that time. They even had a song called "Punk Is Dead"! And I've spent all that time writing "Punk's not dead" slogan on walls and school benches and in my notebooks… Fortunately, since it was an original LP, I had a chance to make photocopies of the record cover and sleeve and had more time to analyze the lyrics. I found them great, sort of cynical "we-are-more-moral-than-you" type of lyrics pointed at the people who pretended to be more moral then the rest of us (church, government, school, army, etc.) in which they said things I could personify with. Like the lyrics for "Banned From The Roxy" that go: "Oh yes they say it's defence, they say it's decency, / Mai Lai, Hiroshima, know what I mean? / The same fucking lies with depressing frequency, / They say "We had to do it to keep our lives clean" / Well whose life? Whose fucking life? / Who the fuck are they talking to? / Whose life? Whose fucking life? / I tell you one thing, it ain't me and you." The war in Hrvatska (Croatia) was just starting and I could really identify with Crass and above said/shouted things. More I learned about them, more I liked them. So this are their releases that I got on CDs, and if you want to know more there's a Wikipedia article on them, a very good Southern Records pages on them and you can get some of Crass' stuff from Active Distribution (Christ – The Bootleg CD and more).

HHH are from Spain and they play really good hardcore. I bought their "Homo Homini Lupus" split LP with Vitu's Dance from Marko V. (Bijesni from Bijes Zdravog Razuma band) sometime between 1994-1996 (can't remember exactly when, I'm not good with years… and names… and places… Guess I've got both short and long-term memory loss, maybe I smoked too much ganja or was it the booze that did it, or occasional glue sniffing in my young days?). I tried to get their other releases but the band was by then (late 1990's) non-functioning and my search was fruitless. You can imagine my happiness when Vedran K. (Mališa is the legend!) got HHH's "Complete Discography 1985-1993" from his friend Phil and showed up with it at my place. I ripped it and scanned the covers so I'm able to put it up here for your enjoyment. I'm sorry that I've given no real info on the band, but there is an info page on Kill From The Heart if you're interested to know more about HHH.
Update on 24.03.2008.: For HHH/Vitu's Dance - (1991) - "Homo Homini Lupus" split LP head over to Röckin' Nöiz. It's a full rip of the LP so you'll get Vitu's Dance side too.

Wat Tyler

This is the one I enjoy listening to very much. They play a mix of everything: punk, metal, pop-punk, rock… The band is named after Wat Tyler, the leader of English Peasants' Revolt of 1381. I was introduced to them by Andrej Č. (Ljubljana-Zalog City Crew) who released theirs "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" album cassette version in this part of the world. I saw them live at No Border Jam festival in Maribor, Slovenia back in 1999 and their performance was for me the best one I saw in two days of the festival. They were funny on stage, playing and acting and telling jokes and entertaining the crowd. Some of their humor is reflected in their CDs covers. As you can see, the cover of "Tummy - Yuppie Shaging Music" is a joke on Portishead's "Dummy" CD cover and the cover for "The Fat Of The Band" is ridiculing Prodigy's "The Fat Of The Land" CD cover. Don't know what they're doing now, but I've found some of their stuff available on Lookout! Records and a MySpace fan page.

I was introduced to Chumbawamba through their various tracks on all sorts of compilation tapes that circulated around, usually benefit tapes for hunt saboteurs, or some other political causes. Then I've managed to get copies of their first two LPs, "Pictures Of Starving Children Sell Records" and "Never Mind The Ballots" on tape and I was hooked. I liked their mix of melodical tunes and political criticism. It was refreshing, cos at that time I listened to a lot of anarcho-punk bands from 1980's (you can describe Crass in many ways, but being a melodical band isn't one of them) and a lots of Doom, Hiatus, Swedish D-Beat type of stuff… Since I've decided to put up music that I've ripped myself, here you have mostly Chumbawamba albums from the 1990's. There is quite extensive article on Wikipedia about them so if you're interested in them, go check it out.

Alians are from Poland. I first heard them when MarkoS from "In Medias Res" fanzine played me their "Megayoga" tape back in 1993-94. They play a mix of punk/reggae/dub, obvious influences being The Clash and Dead Kennedys. I don't know much abut them, but I like two of their releases I've put up for you here. Unfortunately I didn't scan the covers for "Cala Anarchia…" CD when I've ripped it so the front picture is the one I've found on the net. You can check their site here, it's full of info on them but it's in Polish.
