Anti-Nowhere League

Genre:Punk Rock

Anti-Nowhere League is an English punk band formed in 1980 by lead singer Animal (Nick Culmer), guitarist Magoo (Chris Exall), Bones (Tony Shaw) on drums and Baggy Elvy on bass.Their first gig was as a 3 piece at the 1980 Chaos Show at St Mark's Hall, Tunbridge Wells on 31 March, 1980. This was a 6 band extravaganza of local punk-credible bands including Le Nouveau Riche, The Vital Third, The Elite and The Audience. Chris Exall sang as well as played guitar, Graham Shaw (Bones) played drums and Chris Elvey was on bass. They did about 6 Sex Pistols songs and more people left the hall than stayed while they were on stage. In 1981, Gooky (who left the same year), Hopper and Clive "Winston" Blake came in on lead guitar, drums and bass respectively, although Hopper was quickly replaced with PJ ('Persian John') (real name Djahanshah Aghssa). They managed to get a slot in The Exploited's Apocalypse tour, along with Chron Gen and Anti Pasti. This led to them signing to John Curd's record label WXYZ, with Curd and Chris Gabrin co-managing the band
