Preston is Hardcore: Deviated Instinct / Warwound / Anti-System / Burning Flag / Insurgency
PRESTON IS HARDCORE is seismic celebration of Hardcore Crust Punk the likes of which this town has never seen before!
Formed in 1984, DEVIATED INSTINCT is a pioneering English crust punk / death metal band. Their first EP, Welcome to the Orgy, was released by Peaceville Records, who released the majority of their albums. The band disbanded in 1991, but reunited in late 2007.
Vintage D-beat hardcore punks WARWOUND are back with new music. Formed in 1982 by Damian (bass) and drummer Andy Baker, joined by Wayne 'Freaky' Freeman on vocals and Iain Cartwright on guitar. In the autumn of 1983 Damian and Andy were enlisted to join The Varukers (in 1984 Damian left The Varukers to form Sacrilege). Warwound as it was, ceased to be - but now they're back!
ANTI-SYSTEM is a British anarcho punk band. Formed in Bradford in 1981 with a line-up of Phil (drums), George (bass), Nogsy (vocals) and Dom Watts (guitar) the band recorded a demo whose tracks found their way onto a Pax Records compilation. Their debut release was the five-track 'Defence of the Realm' EP issued in 1983, which was followed (on Reconciliation Records after the closure of Pax Records) with the 'No Laughing Matter' album in 1985 and the 12" 'A Look at Life' EP in 1986. The band reformed in 2014.
Ex members of Falconetti, Human Wreckage, and Seal Team Six, BURNING FLAG formed in 2013 to wreak havoc with the current state we're in, playing alongside bands and fans as diverse as Agnostic Front, Subhumans, G.B.H, Discharge, and Extinction of Mankind.
