Zounds .An English anarchist band formed in 1977 from loose jamming sessions around the Reading area. Originally they were part of the cassette culture movement, releasing material on the F**k Off Records label, and were also involved in the squatt.
**THE ASTRONAUTS **
The Astronauts formed 35 years ago in Welwyn Garden City on the backend of the punk explosion of the 70's. After a history of lineup changes bested only by The Fall, chief songwriter Mark Astronaut is still battling on with his impossible to pigeonhole sound and his blusteringly brilliant anarchist lyrical perspective. The Astronauts dabble in punk, post-punk, electronica, psychedelic rock, indie, jazz and folk without flinching but really it's Mark's lyrics that will get you hooked. Mark is a DIY hero, as inventive, uncompromising and youthful (21 this year) as ever. The Astronaut's general aversion to being hip has always kept them as one of the UKs best kept musical secrets so catch them live soon before they vanish back into the suburbs.
Derbys very own anarcho ska/ punk band
**CHRIS BUTLER **
Political acoustic folk/punk.
