    Ey up anarcho-punks!

    I'm Ben, from the good old UK, specifically I was raised just outside of Glasgow and live in mighty mighty Macclesfield atm!
    It's no as excitin as the Macc Lads led you to believe.

    Been into Anarcho-Punk since I were 14 though that were only 7 years ago as I'm a young 'un. Aw bless.

    I can't say I'm a partciularly good anarchist as I don't live in a squat, I don't grow or scrounge me own food and I have a secret penchant for Bruce Springsteen (Cor, int he dreamy!) but we've all got our own little foibles, eh.

    Musically, there are a lot of anarcho-punk bands I care for but the genre as a whole I sometimes think it's a bit stale. Same with crust really. There are some awesome bands but I'd like to know of more that push the boundaries both musically and lyrically. I get tired of the same old chords and the same old beats shoutin out 'Fuck XXXX, they suck' 20 times a record. It's one of my dreams to be part of a band that could push the philosophy and agenda in new and arousing ways - like Chumabwamba, except less embarassing.

    Hope to see this community grow large and strong,
    Ben

    Hey there, have you tried the Ex? They're a Dutch band, pretty well-known too.
    They're not explicitly anarchist, but made a record about the Spanish Revolution entitled 1936 (off the top of my head).
    They started out as a punk band, but eventually decided to collaborate with amongst others: jazz-saxophonists and Erithrean folk musicians.
    Speaking of boundaries, I think they're a wonderful example.
    Also Sonic Boom 6 from GB also have a tendency to push boundaries and seem to have anarchist or at least anti-war leanings.
