ANTI-SYSTEM - Wot No Meat

Info


Jako každý rok i nastávající ročník Obscene Extreme Festivalu 2019 se neobejde či spíše nesmí obejít bez kvalitní crustové či punkové kapely. A pokud je to navíc legenda žánru, tím více se na ni těšíme. Po klasikách typu Discharge či Varukers přicházejí na řadu další neméně kvalitní „old school“ spolky. Jednou z nich je anarcho punk z Bradfordu, ANTI-SYSTEM. 


Kapela vznikla v roce 1981 a rozpadla se někdy kolem roku 1986 krátce poté, co její dva členové byli uvězněni za protesty a účasti na přímých akcích na podporu práv zvířat (což bylo v té době naprostou samozřejmostí …). Znovu aktivní jsou od roku 2014, kdy v roce 2017 nahráli hodně povedenou nahrávku s názvem „At What Price is Freedom?“. A vy je uvidíte naživo na OEF 2019!!!

Bio

Anti-System is a British anarcho punk band formed in Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1981. The original members recorded an early demo, the tracks were included on a Pax Records compilation. The bands debut release was the five track “Defence of the realm” EP issued in 1983 which was followed by the “No laughing matter” album in 1985 & “A look at life” 12” EP in 1986. The band has always promoted animal rights issues, the debut EP was a benefit for animal welfare organisations. Two original members from the 1980’s Mark Keane and Mick Teale were imprisoned for animal rights activities shortly before the release of “A look at life”. Both received lengthy prison sentences for smashing up butchers shops, trashing over 50 top of the range cars and breaking into Bradford’s abattoir releasing all the cattle which were about to be executed that day. The band played sporadically throughout the mid 80’s before calling it a day around 1988.

Anti-System reformed, including several members from the 1980’s line ups in 2014, began gigging again and writing new material. In 2017 the band released the “At what price freedom” 12” Ep and have gigged extensively around the UK and Europe.

The band have remained steadfast to their animal rights beliefs playing many benefit gigs for Hunt Sabs, Hunt Monitors & the Hunt Investigation Team (H.I.T)

Anti-System are, Varik, Andy, Emma, Yaga & Ade
