‘Conflict is an English anarcho-punk band originally based around Eltham in South London that formed in 1981. They have been described as the world’s most influential anarcho-punk band, along with Crass. They influenced the punk movement with their non-conventional approach to music and philosophy. Fierce, tense, cajoling and militant, the reverberation alone is enough to provoke an emotional response. They can be looked on as a combination of what The Clash and Crass could have been, all over a ferocious punk band. The history of rock music has always been intertwined with that of protest, from Bob Marley to Public Enemy, the Stones to the Pistols, etc. Conflict delivers the sound of timeless rebellion’

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
