Product Description:

I HATE PEOPLE/LONG LIVE THE LEAGUE collects mid-'80s singles and album tracks by British punk group The Anti-Nowhere League.
Personnel: Gilly (vocals, guitar); PJ (drums).
Liner Note Author: Carol Clerk.
Before G.G. Allin came along, the vilest punk act was probably the Anti-Nowhere League. They managed to issue only a single full-length album during their "peak" period of the early '80s (1982's We Are...the League); however, they did influence several subsequent punk acts, and received extra attention when Metallica covered their gross-out classic "So What" in the early '90s. Originally issued in 1985, the Anti-Nowhere League's first-ever compilation, I Hate People...Long Live the League, focuses on the group's early days -- as it's comprised primarily of favorites from their aforementioned debut as well as 1983's Live in Yugoslavia and a smattering of rare tracks. "So What" will forever be the Anti-Nowhere League's best track (included here as a live version), which is joined by such other similarly styled ditties as "I Hate People" and "For You," plus a punked-up cover of Ralph McTell's "Streets of London." Along with the Macc Lads, the Anti-Nowhere League were one of the most over the top and confrontational punk acts to hail out of the U.K. during the early '80s, and I Hate People...Long Live the League proves it. ~ Greg Prato
