Saturday, 24th & Sunday 25th November 2007: The Feeding of 5000, London
This is huge show being promoted even by mainstream ticketing companies and all. It’s Crass’ debut LP “The Feeding of 5000” which was released in 1978, being played in its entirety by Crass’s ex-frontman Steve Ignorant and helped along by friends in the UK early anarcho-punk fraternity; Subhumans, Conflict, Icons of Filth, Flux of Pink Indians, Zounds and a relatively new band The Restarts (who had our friend Darragh on drums at one point!).
Anyway, this is like 1980 all over again really. I remember there was a riot when Crass first staged the show back then. One thing for sure though, apparently some people are not happy with this nostalgic anarcho-punk trip and offers suggestions that “anarcho-punk finally sold-out!”. Read the discussions here
If I’m in London, I’ll be there and rub shoulders with them balding ‘narchos and their dogs too.
update: more discussion at the Crass forum board, and…
