    Class War Biography


    The Apostles were an experimental post-punk band who developed within the confines of the 1980s Anarcho Punk scene in the UK, but did not necessarily adhere to the aesthetics of that movement.

    Although the core of the group remained stable, Andy Martin and Dave Fanning were joined by various members over their 10 year span. Variation was also key in music styles as they varied from pop to punk to industrial through to pure experimentation, with influences like The Velvet Underground, The Adverts, Alternative TV, Lemon Kittens, The Pop Group and Twelve Cubic Feet cited.

    Although highly critical of the seemingly inward looking anarchist movement of the times, the autonomous and libertarian approach of The Apostles seemed to portray classic anarchism, as opposed to the conformity of many of their contemporaries. This led to much respect from notable members of the original anarcho-punk movement such as Crass with whom the band co-operated during the squatting of the Zig-Zag Club and running of the (Wapping) Anarchy Centre and (Westbourne Park) Centro Iberico venues, and Conflict who released a single and album by The Apostles on their Mortarhate label.

    Originally formed in 1980 by William Corbett, Julian Portinari, Dan MacIntyre and Pete Bynghall, the band came into its own when Andy Martin joined to contribute lead vocals and lyrics. Shortly afterwards he was joined by Dave Fanning, ex-Innocent Bystander bassist. During this period the band recorded numerous DIY demo cassettes. In 1983 The Apostles released their first 7" single and were joined by 14 year old Scottish drummer Chris Low, ex-Political Asylum. It is from this time that The Apostles have been described as having started their 'proper recording career', releasing four classic singles, the best of which are shortly to see a long overdue re-release on CD, plus numerous full-length albums and further cassette releases.

    The Apostles split up in 1989, immediately forming [a=Academy 23] who released a number of works. Andy Martin & Dave Fanning continued as [a=Unit (6)] although Dave Fanning left Unit in 2007, leaving Andy Martin and Colin Murrell as the only members of Apostles in UNIT.

    Band members: Dave Fanning, Andy Martin (2), Chris Widni, Pete Bynghall, Grant Munro, Martin Ryan (2), Simon Parish, Malcolm Lewty
    Band ex-members: , John Travis, Chris Low (2), Patrick Rat Poole, Sean Stokes, Julian Portinari, Dan MacKintyre

    1) Class war is an England based Anarchist organisation.
    They released the "Better Dead Than Wed" 7" record in 1986.
    The single was released to coincide with the wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and the front cover featured a picture of the royal couple kissing with the title of the single part covering the picture. The rear of the sleeve featured a picture of the changing of the guard overlaid with a black and white image of an inner city riot.
    The single was released on the Mortarhate label and had the catalogue number MORT 000

    The EP contained three tracks, the first two on the A side, and the third on the B side.

    1. Class War - Spoken word over a piano background.
    2. Better Dead Than Wed - A punk track about the royal wedding.
    3. Rap 'n' Durge - A powerful angry monologue over a funky backbeat featuring brass and bass. Rap 'n' Durge was about Class War's attitude to the Royal Family as a whole rather than just the Royal Wedding.

    Run-out groove

    The run out groove of the record has messages scratched in both the A and B sides:

    * A side: "EAT THE RICH!"
    * B side: "July 23. You know what to do."


    The single contained an insert giving Class War's stance on the wedding along with full contact details for regional Class War groups and the paper.

    2005 release

    The title track has been updated and re-released as a free mp3 download available from the Mortarhate site This time the image is of Prince Charles riding a horse bearing a striking resemblance to Camilla Parker-Bowles.

    2) Straight edge hardcore from Australia
