Conflict In-depth Biography

Anarchy in the U.K., indeed -- such was the ultimate goal for the fiercely political British punk} band Conflict}, a group fueled by its hatred of {%Thatcher}'s England, the media, the military, and the general status quo of late 20th century life. Conflict} played its first gig in 1981 led by vocalist Colin Jerwood}, who would remain one of the group's few constants throughout its fluid existence. Much more permanent was the group's political agenda, which was already firmly ensconced by the release of their 1983 debut It's Time to See Who's Who}; songs took on topics like Vietnam, nuclear arms, and vegetarianism. The animal liberation movement, which would remain one of Conflict}'s central concerns throughout their career, returned to the fore on the next year's Increase the Pressure}, with its cover art's focus on the Save the Seals fight.

The band's increased political involvement, often in support of unpopular causes, led a number of their concerts to be broken up by the police; a 1987 appearance at the Brixton Academy even ended in widescale rioting (as documented on the live record Turning Rebellion Into Money}, named after a Clash} lyric). At about the same time, ex-Crass} member Steve Ignorant} joined Conflict} as a joint vocalist. His tenure ended in 1989, the year the band released three different records: The Final Conflict}, Against All Odds}, and Standard Issue 82-87}, a compilation of rare singles and album cuts. After four years of inactivity, Conflict} released a single in 1993, followed later in the year by the album Conclusion}. The record's title proved premature, however; by 1996, the group was back on tour, in support of a re-recorded, re-titled, and re-issued It's Time to See Who's Who Now}. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
