Anti Nowhere League

Anti Nowhere League appearing at this event

An infamous group of hardcore punk rock anarchists, Anti Nowhere League have been living the punk lifestyle for over two decades. Lead singer Animal and his friend Magoo formed the band in 1980, and promptly got arrested at their very first gig. The history of the League is littered with brushes with the law, rock and roll misbehaviour and very loud music. There have been band break-ups and reformations aplenty, but Animal and his chums can be found plying their wares to this very day.

Cyanide Pills (Formerly The Terminals)

From Leeds, Cyanide Pills create perfect pop-punk, the likes of which haven’t been heard since The Boys, Buzzcocks and Dickies. The urgency of their singles and eponymous debut LP reveal a very British take on late-1970s punk, whereas new recordings like “Outta Nowhere” reveal new glam leanings with “Laser Love”-era Bolan riffs, tubthumping drums and handclaps.
