D & V

Formed: Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, UK

Anarcho punk duo which began life as The Epsilons. No guitars or bass, just drums and vocals. They formed in 1980, played with the usual anarcho punk types and appeared at the Zig Zag squat gig in December 1982. Their debut single was a indie hit in October 1983, although probably chiefly because it was on Crass, but their subsequent releases did not set the world on fire.
