Fight War Not Wars: The Art of Crass

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 - Sat, 18 Jun 2016

LCB Depot, Leicester

Formed in 1977, Crass were the ultimate proponents of the DIY punk ethic. They ran their own record label, produced unique gatefold record covers and posters, spray-painted graffiti messages around London, distributed 'zines and booklets at gigs and were famous for their formidable live performances. Questions about the band were raised in parliament and they remained a thorn in the side of the establishment up to - and beyond - their break-up in 1984.
