THE SYSTEM - Formed in 1980, they soon came to much a claim and recognition, with the release of their debut blistering ep on Spiderleg Records in 1982, titled 'The Warfare ep'. This was followed by their second ep, again on Spiderleg 'The System Is Murder' ep in 1983. Thy also contributed a great track to the 'Wargasm' comp album in 1982, titled 'Their Decisions' 30 years on, the band are still playing, still gigging and gaining much respect wherever they go! With more vinyl due on Anthrax's label, Grow Your Own Records, we're delighted to have The System down to play.... Don't miss em!!!
ANTHRAX - Not much more can said about the original Anthrax. Formed in Gravesend, Kent in 1980, they have been a major part of the anarcho punk scene. In 1982 they released their debut ep on Crass Records, the 'Capitalism Is Cannibalism' ep. Also in 1982, they contributed their 'All The Wars' track to the debut 'Bullshit Detector' comp album on Crass Records. In 1983, they released the awesome 'They've Got It All Wrong' 4 track ep on Small Wonder Records, and in 1984, had their track 'It'll Be Alright On The Night' included on the Mortarhate Records comp 'Who What Why When Where'
Fast forward to 2012, after releasing comp albums of all their singles releases, the band released the superb album 'All For The Cause' on their own Grow Your Own Records. In 2014, they shared a split ep with Burnt Cross and plan for further releases on their own label.
