FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH
FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE:
Were extremely pleased to announce that we have partnered up with Section 4 to release their upcoming full length album "In No Fit State." We've been fans of the band for a few years now and absolutely loved their first album "Sure, This Is It." Fans of ska, punk, oi, reggae ... there is something definitely here for you!
If you are new to the band, here is a bio to get you all caught up:
"Section 4 formed in Ballina, on the west coast of Ireland, in 2007 after the break up of local punk band Foreveraftermath and the continuing hiatus of another local band, Riastradh. They play a mix of punk, Oi!, reggae and ska with lyrics that cut right to the heart of current social and political problems. They’ve toured Ireland extensively in their 6 years and made a trips to the UK in 2010 and 2013. They self-released their first album, “Sure This Is It”, in 2011 and will be releasing their second album, "In No Fit State", in February of this year. They will be touring Germany, the UK and Ireland in support of the new album in 2014 and hopefully Cananda in 2015."
Now, here is the real good news. You can listen to the entire new album at the Section 4 bandcamp site, and were expecting to get the CD version of the album in Canada this coming March. More details coming shortly, but feel free to go stream the album, and we'll work out the physical and digital side of things in the coming month so that everyone is pleased and gets their fix of music, whatever the format!
An interesting article by Jim Donaghey which appeared in the Anarchist Developments in Cultural Studies journal:
Abstract: Punk and anarchism are inextricably linked. The connection between them is expressed in the anarchistic rhetoric, ethics, and practices of punk, and in the huge numbers of activist anarchists who were first politicised by punk. To be sure, this relationship is not straightforward, riven as it is with tensions and antagonisms—but its existence is irrefutable. This article looks back to ‘early punk’ (arbitrarily taken as 1976-1980), to identify the emergence of the anarchistic threads that run right through punk’s (ever advancing) history. However, it must be stressed that any claim to being ‘definitive’ or ‘complete’ is rejected here. Punk, like anarchism, is a hugely diverse and multifarious entity. Too often, authors leaning on the crutch of determinism reduce punk to a simple linear narrative, to be weaved through some fanciful dialectic. In opposition to this, Proudhon’s concept of antimony is employed to help contextualise punk’s beguiling amorphousness.
Firstly, thanks to everyone that dropped by our table at this past weekend's Toronto Anarchist Fair, and thanks to the organizers for all their hard work! We've heard that they'll also be an Anarchist Bookfair this summer organized by others in Toronto; we'll spread the word once we find out, but great to see it all happening.
As for the Kitchener-Waterloo Anarchist Bookfair, it's going to be happening in early March and there is already a callout for workshops, tablers and all the like. Check out the page and we'll post any more details as they come. Onwards fellow punks and non-punks alike!
