While I'm not entirely sure how Caleb feels about having pictures of himself posted on the internet, I stumbled across this on the Monkeyclaus site and couldn't resist putting it up. Him and the man himself, as it were. As well as John, frequest Beard Hour listener, supporter and participant.

I'm hoping that y'all are listening to the new Akron/Family record because it is really something special. As well as that Good God! compilation. And the new TV on the Radio record. Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes was a little bit of a letdown after Young Liars pretty much knocked me down for quite some time, so this record makes me feel pretty good in a variety of ways. Best of the year, at the very least.

Overground Records recently put out three compilations of early anarchopunk and peace punk. Well worth the effort of tracking them down. Here is a review of the first one:

Anti-War’ is the first in the long awaited series of 1980’s Anarcho-Punk cds that will chronicle this integral part of the punk scene, and serve as the definitive guide to the Anarcho-Punk scene.

Compiled from recordings culled from heyday of the scene (1980-84), the bands include the leading lights of the scene (Zounds/Dirt/Omega Tribe) as well as many of the lesser known bands that were the life-blood of the scene, pro-active in arranging gigs, making fanzines, organizing benefits etc. (Psycho Faction/Political Asylum/Anti-System).

‘Anti-War’ has been lovingly compiled after many years of research and groundwork, not least finding the bands that in most cases split before 1984! So, having listened to over 1000 recordings from vinyl, demo cassettes, unreleased studio recordings and live gigs we finally settled on 23 tracks for the first volume, 10 of which are previously unreleased.

‘Anti-War’ perfectly captures the whole ecstatic energy of the era, with its diverse mix of spiky barbs and intense diatribes all based around the ‘Anti-War’ theme.

The Beard Hour will be guest dj-ing during the day for the next couple of weeks. Tune in on consecutive mondays, the eleventh and eighteenth, and hear how we clean up during the day. I'll be subbing for Black Circle Revolution, and you can always listen online.

Finally, Drakkar Sauna is playing at the Tea Bazaar tonight. You should come.
