Live in Yugoslavia

Performers The Anti-Nowhere League

Not yet rated | write a review
One of the U.K.'s most bizarre releases of the '80s was this platter -- a souvenir of biker-punks the Anti-Nowhere League's foray into Tito's Yugoslavia in April 1983. The mystery of how such a concert came to pass could occupy Agatha Christie for several weeks, but we should be amused, if not necessarily grateful, that it did. The Zagreb crowd, evidently starved of A-list attractions, sing along rowdily and seem happy to indulge the group's cartoon capers. Not that "The League," as they were later to call themselves, can't play. Indeed, their Glitter Band-meets-the-Sex Pistols bluster is quite affecting on "Wreck a Nowhere" and a version of "Paint It Black" that would leave Richards and Jagger blushing. Note that when first reissued on CD in the '90s alongside The Perfect Crime, several tracks went walkabout, including the infamous "So What." These have been restored on the 1999 Snapper reissue. ~ Alex Ogg
