The Story of Crass

by George Berger

If you didn't know, Crass was the anarcho-punk face of a revolutionary movement founded by radical thinkers and artists Penny Rimbaud, Gee Vaucher and Steve Ignorant. When punk ruled the airwaves, Crass waived the rules and took it further, putting out their own records, films, and magazines, and setting up a series of situationist pranks that were dutifully covered by the world’s press. Not just another iconoclastic band, Crass was a musical, social and political phenomenon unlike any other.

Commune dwellers who were rarely photographed and remained contemptuous of conventional pop stardom; members explored and finally exhausted the possibilities of punk-led anarchy. After all these years, they have at last collaborated on telling the whole Crass story, giving access to many never-before seen photos and interviews for fans and readers to enjoy.
