In an interview with 3:AM Magazine, George Berger – author of The Story of Crass – reflects on his own band’s relationship to anarcho-punk culture (and refers to the book the author of this blog is writing):
Being part of the London anarcho-punk-goth-crazy-coloured-fools-with-no-rules scene certainly informed the perspective that the book is written with of course, because it meant my early experience with anarchist thought and practice wasn’t limited to Crass. A sense of perspective, as Tap philosophised. But I’m not so sure FITD [Flowers in the Dustbin] as a band were as much a part of all that in the way it’s now remembered. There’s a book about anarcho-punk coming out called The Hippies Now Wear Black – we were innocent on both those charges!
