    The Apostles 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 [l=The Autonomy Centre] and [l=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, Martin Smith (54)
