    i want a list. but if 3000 items is too much could you just post bands? because i was aware of hundreds of crass oriented bands and there no links to them anymore so i forgot about a large number of them.

    This has nothing to do with the bands being crass-like or not. Read the whole story, everything is explained.

    We hosted 3000 albums on Mediafire.
    When they heard about our website, Crass filed a copyright complaint to Mediafire instead of contacting us.
    In result, Mediafire deleted the whole account because Crass insisted it was copyrighted material.
    2 years later, we bought our own server to host our albums. They are now back online, but it is the same 3000+ albums that were deleted because of Crass.
    So just check the list of the albums hosted by Anarcho-Punk.net and you will find out.

    thank you. but don't you think that's kind of making the same mistake? regardless I want to know what was taken down so I can know what bands Crass were claiming to be copyrighted

    I don't mean to sound impatient with you but nobody here is going to post all 3000 deleted bands and albums, that's just ridiculous, and no we aren't making the same mistake because a. no Crass albums, and b. it's our own server that hosts it, so unless we have a psychotic breakdown and delete the albums ourselves it isn't happening. Crass claimed copyright on their own records we were hosting and because of their label/lawyers/greed we lost over 3000 albums that didn't have anything whatsoever to do with them.

    Well fuck, this is super disappointing. Crass was like the fucking poster child of anarcho-punk, but now their just a capitalist trophy. Dammit man. Ah well, C'est La Vie

    I assume that money for volunteer search and rescue boatmen is shite these days, it's disappointing that he couldn't have kept on practicing what he was preaching all those years ago it's pretty much the same as Lydon turning into a butter shill

    Going over this thread, I came across Andy Lefton's comments in the first 3 pages or so, Andy is well known as being a member of War//Plague and most recently of Tau Cross with Barron Miller of Amebix. Being the nasty antifa that I am, I came across some comments from Mr. Amebix that left much to be discussed on behalf of antifa/anarchists/people of color, and I politely but honestly pointed out these flaws in his thinking. Needless to say, Mr. Amebix' true bourgeoise, neo-liberal, patriarchal, Anglo/Saxon-centric, views came to light. He defended gay/nazi Milo Yianoppoulos' right to "free speech" regardless if they put anyone's life at risk (namely undocumented University Of California at Berkeley students that he and his nazi companions had doxxed and were prepared to out). Well after all this back and forth, I'd finally had enough of Mr. Amebix talking down to me from his pedestal. I promptly let him know he was full of shit and I could give a fuck who he thought he was. Which brings us back to Mr. Lefton. I contacted Andy and let him know what had happened, and he immediately asked me not to make it public. Now looking back at these Crass threads, I remember were I knew him from. Nothing has changed with Mr. Lefton, still defending dodgy assed old white men from the UK that pose as anarchist. Sickening....
