Details

If the bands in 'Burning Britain' were loud, political and uncompromising, those examined in 'The Day The Country Died' were even more so, totally prepared to risk their liberty to communicate the ideals they believed in so passionately.

With Crass and Poison Girls opening the floodgates, the arrival of bands such as Zoundz, Flux Of Pink Indians, Conflict, Subhumans, Dirt, The Mob, Rudimentary Peni, Anti-Sect, Omega Tribe and Icons Of Filth heralded a brand new age of honesty and integrity in underground music. It was a time when punk stopped being merely a radical fashion statement, and became a force for real social change; a genuine revolutionary movement, driven by some of the most challenging noises ever committed to tape. Anarchy, as regards punk rock, no longer meant 'cash from chaos', it meant 'freedom, peace and unity'. Anarcho-punk took the rebellion inherent in punk from Day One to a whole new level of personal awareness.

All the scene's biggest names, and most of the smaller ones, are comprehensively covered with brand new, exclusive interviews and hundreds of previously unseen photographs. 'The Day The Country Died' is the perfect companion piece to 'Burning Britain' for anyone even remotely interested in the UK punk scene.
