About this deal

Anti-Nowhere League are an English punk rock band, formed in 1979 by lead singer Animal (Nick Culmer), guitarist Magoo (Chris Exall), Bones (Tony Shaw) on drums and Chris Elvy on bass. Certainly when you get later on in life, you think, ‘fuck me, that was what it was all about,’ – I think it’s a good vehicle for that. Biker-punks Anti-Nowhere League have done NEC before, but their appearance was cast into doubt when singer Animal was glassed in the side of the head a few weeks ago. This subreddit is temporarily private as part of a joint protest to Reddit's recent API changes, which breaks third-party apps and moderation tools, effectively forcing users to use the official Reddit app. This is … because it’s my 60th birthday, three anniversaries: it’s the 40th year of punk [in England], of course this year – it’s a big year in the UK for Punk.

Nick: Because we got signed to Cleopatra Records in California, they want to put the book out [in the US], but my manager is still waiting until the legal teams are finished pawing over it, I think, and then we’re going to approach people. I don’t think it achieves anything, it’s just a voice for kids growing up… and an old bloke who moans.Every time I put a song out… It’s funny, people like the idea that you’re an anti-band and that you’re against people – as long as you don’t say anything against them: ‘You’re fine saying what you like about people, but don’t talk about me. Nick: We do play on the skinhead festivals, but I think they are not as rowdy, should we say, as the other ones.

Saturday, 28 September 2019 sees the latest edition of the North East’s own mini-Rebellion Festival, with 12 bands playing in one day in one venue. I think they keep the kids away, but I think they put us on just to… well, you go to festivals now and you’ve gotta have all different types of music going on.

However, there was a belated 'farewell' show at the Victoria Hall in Tunbridge Wells, in 1989, which was recorded and can be heard on their live album, Live Animals. Then again, maybe they didn’t walk the road I walked, so I’ve still got half of a motorcycler in me.

I think it gives another good feeling of rebelliousness to them – everyone loves feeling a bit rebellious, don’t they, as you’re going up. Of course everybody is moaning at me saying, ‘fuck me, I’m traveling to see The League,’ but I think in their madness these people do these things, because I think that’s where we’re at our best – when we’re right in the sweaty pit, when we’re right in people’s faces and it’s fucking crazy. His replacement was Dave Hazlewood (Nato), from the small Kent town of Cranbrook, who had filled in before on tours.I think if I put the book out a few years ago, it wouldn’t be a problem, but now they’re a bit scared.
