Would you believe I put all the photo artwork together, including photographing original prints borrowed from UNICEF in the Hague, while we lived in a huge squat in downtown Amsterdam with no heat during the winter? Only to have Gee of Crass change it all before they pressed the record for us, requiring me to demand it all back and start over? I even developing the film and made the prints in a community darkroom somewhere in the city with lots of people wondering just what the hell I was doing printing pictures of starving children. Good times.

And that was the tamest part of that European tour (83 - 84)...you should have SEEN what happened in the 6th floor squat we played at in West Berlin. Hint: ever seen riot cops actually give up cause they were beat back by punks? Me either and I was a street political punk used to protesting and civil disobedience actions. But that shit was amazing to see, especially the first group of cops...2 detectives dressed like Inspector Clouseau, complete with hats and trench coats. The main one asked or rather demanded a record for the lyrics, but got shit as he didn't want to pay. I did give him and the other one a pogo dance for free though. He kept bugging me for a record so I told Dave and they launched into Dead Cops, to which the punks grabbed the detectives by the lapels and pogo'ed them towards and eventually out the doors.

2nd wave of all riot cops came and again, the band played Dead Cops and the punks pushed them even harder back out the door and partially down the stairs. Why can't people stand up to the cops here like they did there? So fun....
