1977
A gang of young provocateurs. Confrontational Bristol teenagers fronted by Mark Stewart, outspoken lyricist and eccentric voice, mixing countless genres of underground music with Freak Funk as their most dominant sonic way of communication. Their 1979 debut album ‘Y’ was a most influential leftist avant garde punk opus for many artists to come !

2015
A gang of mature provocateurs. Confrontational Bristol adults fronted by Mark Stewart, outspoken lyricist and eccentric voice, mixing countless genres of underground music with 21st Century Freak Funk Produced by Paul Epworth as their sonic way of communication. Their 2015 comeback album ‘Citizen Zombie’ will be most influential on young artists not interested in the U2’s and the Foo Fighters’ of these times !
