Hardcore punks Anti Nowhere League have become a mainstay on the alternative scene having rocked the world with their confrontational music. Now they are back with their seventh studio album; The Cage. The band consist of drummer Tony ‘Bones’ Shaw, Clive Blake on bass, guitarist Magoo (aka Chris Exall) and singer Animal (AKA Nick Culmer).
Starting out as a three-piece, the Tunbridge Wells band played their first gig at local venue St. Mark’s Hall as part of the 1980 Chaos Show where they were joined by five other punk bands. The band soon extended in members and began to support Discharge and The Exploited on their Apocalypse Tour. They then toured as the support band for The Damned after supposedly bribing their drummer Rat Scabies in an East End pub toilet.
They released their debut single Streets Of London towards the end of 1981. A cover of Ralph McTell’s work, the single rose to #48 and continued to chart for five weeks. However, it was the heavily expletive b-side So What? that was most notable about the release. The song was deemed to contravene obscenity laws and copies of the single were seized from the published Pinnacle by the Met Police. So What? has subsequently become the band’s signature song.
Their previous albums include We Are… The League, The Perfect Crime, Scum, Kings And Queens, The Road To Rampton and We Are… The League… Un-cut.
