This band was the forefront of the non dickhead side of vegan straight edge hardcore. They had realistic and down to earth yet very radical anarcho politics. Look into this band and others there were many great Canuck hardcore bands long before fucked up strolled onto the music scene/



Heygate Estate & Thamesmead….

The infamous Heygate estate in Elephant & Castle now lays derelict waiting to be torn down. It along with many other estates have for a long time fascinated me. I attribute this to the generally brutal and hostile designs and labyrinth like network of walkways and stairwells. I decided, before it was too late, to have a look around and take some pictures. During the same trip I also visited the Thamesmead estate, made famous by Stanley Kubricks “A Clockwork Orange” Here I present a few pictures from my trip, if you’d like to see more you can on my Flick R. For further reading I recommend an article entitled “The Death Of A Housing Ideal” which you can read here.
