ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE: Punk Singles & Rarities 1981-84: CD

Despite their cartoonish side, they were still pretty good. Certainly better than the Exploited and bands of that ilk they were lumped in with. While some lyrics may shock (“Woman,” “So What,” the latter which caused the authorities in England to raid their offices and destroy the remaining copies of the single) and offend, at the bottom of it all is irony and sarcasm. A hard concept for some to grasp, but that’s not your problem or mine. Tuneful mid-tempo punk with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Animal’s voice bellows out about the streets of London, hating people, and the sort. The guitar sound was pretty good and the rhythms were simple and catchy. Fun stuff needless to say.
