Product Description:

Who'd have thought that the Anti-Nowhere League would last so well? Not just because they were incredibly funny without being a comedy band (even less so than the Dickies), or because their songs still seem so catchy. No, because their whole "piss off" attitude has transcended the time in which this truly (proudly) motley, anti-glamorous crew appeared in a cloud of pig-pen's dust. Perhaps only the most wimpoid techno-popper could dismiss the blistering hooks of the classic 7" "For You," and "We are the League," and only the Saturday Night Live Church Lady could keep from splitting an irreverent gut on "Animal," and especially "So What" (the song whose social-comment filthiness got it banned in England by Scotland Yard -- no kidding, they raided the warehouse and confiscated all the singles!), and maybe even Church Lady puts this on and curses a blue streak along with Animal. It's Animal who's the star, much as it's Rotten's voice that makes the Pistols so captivating even after you've played Bollocks a million times. Such up-front attitude, spit and soil and "anti-gloss" (cod-piece and all), are rare in history, so when Animal hisses "don't f*ck with the league" or "so what, so what, so what you boring little c*nt," it's John Waters-disgusting, uproarious, and nutty at the same time. Try not to love these recordings. "I hate people .. they hate me!" There's about as much sugar-coating here as swallowing sandpaper and liquid fire (that's what Animal's voice sounds like!). "Why! Why! Were they so ugly/dirty/lonely?!?!?" Bless 'em. This is the only good kind of vermin. ~ Jack Rabid
