Subhumans

Profile:
Long-standing punk rock band from the United Kingdom. Formed in 1980, the band broke up in 1986 but then got back together in 1999 for a reunion tour, after which they continued to tour. Members were also active in Citizen Fish and Culture Shock. Originally the band went under the name Subhuman but changed their name to Subhumans within their first year together.

Not to be confused with the early Canadian punk band The Subhumans from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Subhumans, Crass, Flux Of Pink Indians and other 'Anarcho Punk' bands (as the music became referred to) were always musically very interesting to me back in the early 1980's, I really liked (and do like) the music but found a lot of the politics and certain attitudes of some folk within the scene to be quite dictatorial and rigid, almost militant.
I remember being told by a vegetarian Punk friend that I would always be a part of 'the problem' if I ate meat, whereas if I stopped eating meat (like he had) then I would somehow be a part of the solution! I found it hard to take this seriously as this same friend smoked like a trooper and drank copious amounts of Special Brew and Merrydown cider on a daily basis. Are the tobacco and alcohol companies somehow more ethical and righteous than the meat production companies? obviously not.
Anyhow I kept coming across this sort of contradiction and heavy handed attitude within the scene so eventually drifted away from it and got more into Metal. But recently I've got back into the music, especially Subhumans and I've remembered how much I like it, so now being older and (hopefully wiser) I enjoy the music for what it is without having to subscribe to the politics of the groups that produced the music.
I guess what I'm saying is that if possible try not to let the politics of any musician / band put you off their music as their is so much excellent music out there, and as CRASS said "Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do", now that is the crux of it for me.
