Anti-Nowhere League on Friday 5th November 2021
The ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE officially started in 1980 as a four piece, with original members, Animal, Magoo, Bones and Baggy. They played a few shows together at local venues and soon got a reputation for being an obnoxious band with a bad attitude. By 1981 the band had written and recorded their first album ‘We are the League’ which was at no 1 for many weeks in the independent charts along with three singles, ‘Streets of London’, ’I Hate People’ and ‘Woman’, although the album was very successful for the band it did not include the song ‘So What’ because of legal restraints of obscenity laws so the band took the album on the road for the now infamous ‘So What Tour’.
However, by the time the ‘Perfect Crime’ album got recorded the band were not happy with the end result, so finally in 1989 the band recorded ‘The Final Farewell’ show in the Victoria Hall, Southborough, and soon after decided to call it a day and split. It was in 1991 that the band made the decision to get back together thanks to Metallica covering ‘So What’ and asking Animal to join them up on stage to sing the song live with them at Wembley. Although the band were enthusiastic about rebuilding the band musically they had a lot of work ahead of them and because of the Metallica’s tie up with the band they drifted into a more metal sound.
Today the band are firing on all cylinders, touring with bands like Rancid and playing the big festivals like Download and Rebellion. Animal also re-joined Metallica back up on stage to play their 30th birthday bash in San Francisco which proved with out a doubt that Metal and Punk can stand side by side. In 2016 the band released their definitive album ‘The Cage’ which is an insight of how “we all live in cages we have built for ourselves” and has been hailed as their finest to date.
So to sum up, the band are now playing live and recording, and doing what they do best - swimming against the flow of the corporate controlled 'music business’, again proving Punk is the last music rebellion and is still a major music force to be reckoned with!
