Footnotes

Crass popularised the anarcho-punk movement of the punk subculture, advocating direct action, animal rights, feminism, anti-fascism, and environmentalism. The band used and advocated a DIY ethic approach to its albums, sound collages, leaflets, and films. Discovered by Peel in the late 70's, Crass did a session for his show in 1979 which was later aired on the 10th April 1979.
