ANARKA AND POPPY


These two gigs were recorded a few days apart in 1983, the sets are exactly the same, as is the recording quality, so whether or not you really need both of them is up to you. ANARKA AND POPPY languish in the world of the cassette only doldrums, I can only imagine how much more recognisable their name would be had their recorded but never released EP on All The Madmen ever seen the light. Classic female fronted anarcho punk, this time with no bass (I gather that the singer and guitarist plowed through a slew of rhythm sections during their short existence. Three of these songs also appear on the 1982 All That Is Shattered demo, but everything here is decidedly more laid back, less fierce, and presented in pure unadulterated live quality.
