Conflict (2)


Conflict is an anarcho-punk band formed in 1980, originally based around Eltham in South London. In 1983 Conflict set up their own Mortarhate Records and Fight Back Records labels. Steve Ignorant, at the time a member of the band Crass, guested on the band's pro-animal rights single "To A Nation of Animal Lovers". After the dissolution of Crass, Ignorant later became second vocalist for Conflict on a semi-permanent basis. This followed a 1986 gig in Brixton, London wherein he had joined the band on stage for a few numbers.

Outspoken regarding issues such as anarchism, animal rights, the anti-war movement and in their support for the organisation Class War, a number of their gigs during the 1980s were followed by riots and disturbances. The band's 'Mortarhate' logo, originally designed by 'Nihilistic Nobody' is claimed to be a reference to the initials CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) as well as incorporating two 'A's for anarchy and autonomy, and an 'N' for nihilism. The logo originally appeared around 1980 in Thanatos, a small circulation pamphlet produced by Toxic Graffity (sic) fanzine editor Mike Diboll.
