Obscure 80s anarcho-punks STONE THE CROWZ have their recorded output compiled in one place this month.
Initially coming together on the London/Essex border with a mutual love of CRASS, adding a Z to their name so as not to be confused with the similarly branded Glasgow blues-rockers, Stone The Crowz took a distinct animal rights stance, espousing hunt-sabbing and other forms of direct action.
Playing their debut gig as support to SUBHUMANS, they became regulars on the London and home counties anarcho scene, their recordings finding an outlet on releases via Slam, Endangered Music and CONFLICT’s Mortarhate label. Following their split, members went on to form punk-metal crossover band AXEGRINDER.
Available on CD, download and limited edition clear vinyl gatefold, Protest Songs 85-86 is out on 28 August but can be pre-ordered here.
