anti-nowhere league

The band officially started in 1980 as a four piece band, with original members, Animal, Magoo ,Bones and Baggy. They played a few shows together at local venues and soon got a reputation for being an obnoxious band with a bad attitude. But within a short space of time members Bones and Baggy due to work and tour commitments were replaced by Winston and PJ and went on tour with the Damned. By 1981 the band had written and recorded their first album ‘We are the League’ which was at no 1 for many weeks in the independent charts along with 3 singles ‘Streets of London’, ’I Hate People’ and ‘Woman’, although the album was very successful for the band it did not include the song ‘So What’ because of legal restraints of obscenity laws so the band took the album on the road for the now infamous ‘So What Tour’ .by 1983 the band were riding high and brought in a second Guitarist ‘Gilly’ to add a more musical sound and recorded the aggressive live album ‘Live in Yugoslavia’ which was received very well, especially with the former Yugoslavians who for many of them meant that Punk Rock had arrived in their neck of the woods. Later on in 1983 PJ was sacked and JB took over drumming and the band had finished writing their second studio album ‘Branded’ but due to management bad finances the album never got recorded and the band were sent on tour to keep them ‘quiet’. After the release of their last single ‘Out in the Wasteland’ in 1985 the band became disillusioned with the whole music scene and had lost their way in what direction the band should be going so decided on one last major tour to get inspiration, Australia was calling. The Australian tour turned out to be very good for the band and the ‘Perfect Crime’ album was written and regenerated some enthusiasm again, thanks to Australian Punks. But by the time the ‘Crime’ album got recorded the band were not happy with the end result, although the album was written with electric guitars it ended up using synthesizers and fell into oblivion, so finally in 1989 the band recorded ‘The Final Farewell’ show in the Victoria Hall, Southborough and soon after decided to call it a day and split.
