ANTI-SOCIAL

Formed: Birmingham, West Midlands, England, UK

A fairly obscure punk band from Birmingham (the real one in the UK), Anti-Social claimed to the "the world's most violent rock group" and, in late 1978 (nearly a year after their single was released) offered £15,000 to anybody who agreed to be executed onstage with a guillotine. It turns out that there was a copy of this single in John Peel's famous box of singles i.e. the one box of records he would grab if his house was on fire. An album they were supposed to have recorded in '78 remains unreleased, although I'm sure Overground will dredge it up at some point!
