    Description

    "Anarchistwood" 29th September 9pm
    Anarchistwood “One of the best description of Anarchistwood comes from a review in Razorcake – where it is impossible to tell whether its trying to insult or praise them and whether the reviewer loves or hates them- but it captures their essence perfectly. “What the Fuck Is This? Weirdo Hippy Anarchist Art-Punk from the UK, like a psychotic mix of Crass, Gang of Four and Frank Zappa!” It’s here in full. To me they are more like the Cravats / Rubella Ballet / Poison Girls style of Anarcho… only with added 21st century lysergic bounce and art-terror-madness.” Ged Babey in Louder than War http://louderthanwar.com/anarchistwood-bomb-luggage-rack-explosive-video/ 27/12/17
