Punk benefit in Nottingham
Belgian dub punk band Cop on Fire will be playing a benefit gig in support of antifascist prisoners at the Sumac Centre in Nottingham next Thursday, August 25th.
COP ON FIRE
“Born out of Leuven, Belgium’s activist squatting scene in 2004, Cop on Fire have been putting up festive foundations of pumping drums and sub-bass dub supporting their local scene. COF consists of 4 people who have a heart for dub, ska, punk and protest songs – they use these influences to recreate feelings from daily life: sticking it to The Man, taking a stand for Mother Earth, opening the bin for bigoted morality and xenophobia of all kinds… oh, and we don’t like cops. Reclaim the Streets, opening autonomous social centres, Antifascist Action, sustainable living… action backed up by the flow of drum and bass, a guitar crossing musical boundaries all thrown in a mix of effects and echoes from the underbelly of society – the samples. Influenced by bands as diverse as Amebix, Skatalites, Killing Joke, Mad Professor, Conflict, Radical Dance Faction, The Clash and Immortal Technique”
Food served from 7pm, gig starting at 8ish, £5 entry.
All proceeds will go to the antifascist prisoners.
