Anthrax - One Last Drop 7"

Click for larger image

No, not that one, the proper one.

This is a limited vinyl pressing (300, each numbered) of their first new studio tracks in 25 years, originally released on MCD in 2009. The band have put this out to raise money for Bradford's legendary '1 in 12 Club', who are facing large bills [...]

Squat The Lot!

I've been using whatever remnants of knowledge and wisdom I have in my head to help a young punk put this benefit compilation together. And I'm very excited by how it's turning out.

There are some great acts involved, covering the whole gamut of punk, ska, folk and other related noise, and they've all given their [...]

Never Surrender, Never Give In!

In recent days, punks in Aceh, Indonesia, who were attending a benefit gig to raise money for orphans, were arrested en masse, humiliated, and put into 10-day religious fundamentalist 're-education' programmes. Their crime? Being punks.

The Aceh state government implements a form of sharia law. Having a weird haircut, wearing black clothes, and hanging out with [...]

Book 'Em, Danno!

Following on from yesterday's little exercise in improving police-community relations, I've branched out into literature. This flyer can be downloaded in a convenient 4-to-an-A4-sheet format ready for printing, then cut up and surreptitiously inserted into all manner of inflammatory material. These seditious publications can be found in your local library, bookshop or children's school.

Remember, in [...]

Grass War

In the last couple of days, Brit cops have issued a news bulletin asking people to snitch on any 'anarchists' they know. Quite what they define as an anarchist beyond their cut 'n' paste job from Wikipedia is anyone's guess. Local librarians who let you borrow anarchist books? Retailers (I'm looking at you, Amazon!) who [...]

Punks Against Tsunamis!

I've been asked to give a shout out to a benefit gig organised to raise some much-needed cash for Save The Children Japan. There are some cracking acts on the line-up running the whole gamut of punk rock, from ranting poetry to pounding crust. So make a date in your diary and get along if [...]

Mobs v. Mobiles

Under the slogan 'If They Won't Chase Them, We Will', UK Uncut has called a day of action this Saturday to target Vodaphone and Philip Green (owner of British Home Stores, TopShop etc.). Just between these two, they have cheated the nation out of billions of pounds through blatant tax evasion and cronyism.

UK Uncut want [...]

Nuts To The Cuts!

Click for larger printable version

It's simple. The ongoing and proposed cuts in public services, including education, are nothing but class war. The Tories want everything in private hands, so that they and their capitalist string-pullers can bleed as much as they possibly can from us. The LibDems are happy to collaborate with their dirty [...]
