Established in 1995, The Propaganda And Information Network (as P.A.I.N is officially named) was first put together from the ashes of two seminal free festival bands: AOS3 and Radical Dance Faction. Brought together to carry on the same Anarcho-style rantings, but with a much harder, Punk Rock attitude to it (less toking and more drinking!) within the first 7 days of forming P.A.I.N managed to book up a 3 week tour, literally writing the set in soundchecks.
The band went from strength to strength releasing their first live demo (Prison’s no Place for Punishment – a real collector’s item these days,) within their first month of existence. Well that was 11 years ago. Since then P.A.I.N. have released 2 studio albums, 2 cd singles and a couple of live albums, and are currently working on a new studio album and a P.A.I.N. in Dub album.
There are a few gigs springing up around the country and more tours coming up in a couple of weeks so things are going great guns at the moment. “Sharpen your cutlasses boys, theres a mighty stormy sea ahead!!”
