    ANNIE ANXIETY Biography

    Chanteuse/lyricist, multimedia artist and post-modern cabaret queen with a long, illustrious and eclectic recording career. Born in New York with no intention of a career in the arts, she pursued numerous jobs, crisscrossed the continent, and generally earned her poetic license until she found herself on stage at the legendary ‘Max’s Kansas City’, fronting the atonal, savage dance-rhythmed Asexuals at the sneak-in-the-back-door age of 16. After meeting Steve Ignorant from the band Crass on her doorstep a year later, she visited the United Kingdom for 2 weeks and stayed for over a decade. Through the years and numerous collaborations (Wolfgang Press, Crass, the ON-U Sound stable, Kid Congo Powers, Current 93, Nurse With Wound, the late Bim Sherman, Coil, Fini Tribe, Collapsed Lung, and many fine others) she refused to be restricted by labels and genres and continues to span the spectrum from jazz, reggae & hip-hop to torch and avant-garde.

    Annie Anxiety, also known as Little Annie Bandez (also 'Little Annie Anxiety Bandez') is a singer, painter, and stage actor, perhaps most widely known for her vampish performance of the song 'Things Happen', with the band Coil. She has recorded extensively with vanguard figures of late twentieth century music such as rock musician Kid Congo Powers, dub stalwart Adrian Sherwood, punk/experimental band Crass, and experimental/electronica band Coil, an entity that had its origins in the first Industrial Rock band, Throbbing Gristle.

    On 25 March 1980, she participated in a concert by British bands Crass and Poison Girls, and Dutch bands including Cheap 'n' Nasty in Voorschoten in the Netherlands.

    Little Annie currently performs in New York City, and has released solo albums since the 1980s. Her most recent album, 'Songs from the Coalmine Canary' is co-produced by Antony Hegarty, and Joe Budenholzer, of Backworld.

    Label - Crass Records

    Anarcho-punk label from Essex, UK founded by Crass in 1979.
    The catalogue numbers of Crass Records releases were intended to represent a countdown to the year 1984 (e.g., 521984 meaning "five years until 1984").
    When separated with a slash it means it's the Nth release of this year (e.g. 321984/2 = second release of 1981).
    In 1985, the catalogue numbers were changed to a standardised system (Cat. No. x).
    Closed down in 1992, restarted in 2019.
