On Saturday 16th October we’ll be having a benefit gig at Six Feet Under nightclub in Newport, tickets will soon be available on their website and in local record shops.

The Oppressed are the world’s foremost anti-fascist skinhead band; formed in Cardiff in 1981 they have been speaking out against racism in a scene where too many have kept quiet. Responsible for bringing “SkinHeads Against Racial Prejudice” (SHARP) to Europe over twenty years ago and still active in anti-fascist organising with Cardiff Independent Antifa. Though the band now regularly play events across Europe, local gigs are few and far between, this will probably be your only chance to see The Oppressed anywhere near South Wales this year. Not to be missed.

Support comes from other outspoken Cardiff punk and skinhead bands. No Choice are one of the best UK punk bands formed in the early 80s that are still recording and along with anarcho-folk-punx KilAboy have been regulars at No Borders benefit gigs for years. Tighten Up are a 60s skinhead review group and The D Teez are “just another punk band” both featuring members of the Oppressed.

There is an event page on Facebook, please invite your friends. Tickets are £5, all money raised will be used for local anti-deportation campaigns and Calais Migrant Solidarity. Entry will be from 7pm Read the rest of this entry »
