Ian Glasper


If the bands in Burning Britain have been loud, political, and uncompromising, these tested in Ian Glasper's new publication have been much more so. With Crass and Poison ladies establishing the floodgates, the coming of bands like Zoundz, Flux of red Indians, clash, Subhumans, airborne dirt and dust, The Mob, Omega Tribe, and Icons of grime heralded a brand new age of honesty and integrity within the Nineteen Eighties underground track scene. It was once a time whilst punk stopped being simply an intensive model assertion, and have become a strength for actual social swap. Anarchy in punk rock now not intended "cash from chaos"—it intended "freedom, peace, and unity."
