'Societys Victim' zine #2 1983: John(Cato) of A System Partly Revealed zine has started up a band called Admit Your Shit...I wrote to him and he says "We hope to be gigging soon and have about 10 decent songs worth doing. One is about what a bunch of cunts the working class people are saying how proud they are of being working class, which I think is snobbery..and the other is about Con flict who've ripped me and many others off and claim to believe in anarchy and peace then shitting out their views on some poor bastard they've just beaten to the floor. Perhaps you like Conflict and I'm not slagging their followers, just mainly Colin the sex symbol.."
Part of an Interview from the zine - 'Infection' #6, from 1985 or 86 :
What's the point behind AYS - Is it communication or entertainment?
John: The point behind AYS is Colin Jerwood's foot. No, it is enjoyment ( for us anyway ) . it's a good way to stem aggression rather than on other people. I hope we can channel our aggression into music rather than into spitefulness or wickedness. The communication is there only if people can relate to your empathies and hold on to something you've offered; you can only offer it & never force anyone to believe it.
What made you Straight or have you always been so? What are your objections to Alcohol, Tobacco etc?
John: Just a common sense thing really, if anything takes control of your mind you can't be much of a person in the first place. It's something that should be instinct but I guess it's something that has to be learnt through error first and realising your mistakes & facing up to the stupidity of it.
Do you think violence is ever justified?
John: No, there is absolutely no need for violence & all stupidity will carry on existing until people realise that is exactly what we are - human beings. Violence is something humans have created & therefore as human beings we have the responsibility to put a stop to pain.
