Antisect – Demos and Live 1982
Antisect – Leeds 2.4.86
Antisect – Out from the Void

Formed in 1982 in Daventry, Antisect are among the greats of eighties UK punk. Their sound crossed several genres and they influenced many to follow.
Politically connected to groups like Conflict and Crass, members were also very active in the London squatting scene of the time. Musically they can be easily recommended for fans of anarcho-punk, crust, hardcore/metal – and they had a hand influencing all.

The most immediate comparisons are Amebix and Deviated Instinct: Heavy crust punk lurching into metal. Others that cannot go unmentioned include Discharge, Sacrilege, and Hellbastard.

Not as well known as some of their contemporaries, but this should be changing with a recent reformation, 20+ gigs in 2012 -including a US tour!- and Out of the Void reissue. Southern’s In Darkness There is No Choice CD remains out of print.

What do you offer
What are your barriers
Who owns your mind
What is your shield
What do you steal
What is your justice
Who is your martyr
Where is your corner
What is your liberty
What is your peace
What is your purpose
Where lies your faith
Why was your past
Who do you oppress
Why do you care
What is your bondage
