Atterkop… political punk/hardcore/dub with an anarchist sentiment … yep, the Bristol – Hamilton anarcho-radical-luv connection continues to flourish and blossom … stoked to be one of the labels helping to release the first full-length from Atterkop … a hefty dose of political dub soaked punk coupled with riff heavy beat downs and frantic ska … music for social change not fashion or profit … copies are winging their way to RTR HQ as we speak …

ATTERKOP – LIBER ABACI

Release date: 1st October 2016

atterkopgrouppicHaving built up a strong following over the years as a solid part of Bristol’s underground punk scene and part of the Riotska Records collective,
Atterkop are pleased to finally unleash their strong debut album ‘Liber Abaci’.

With a mighty sound Atterkop bring a unique edge to the punk rock scene, mixing aggressive hardcore leaning sounds while remaining very much a dub-punk band in places. ‘Liber Abaci’ certainly brings the band forward with its superb and epic- sounding production along with the addition brass on select tracks, thanks to members of King Prawn and Citizen Fish.

Taking in themes from across anarchist political perspectives, Atterkop use their loud, abrasive and unique sounds to carry their messages. The album covers everything from gender politics and anti-fascism to environmentalism and mental health.

‘Liber Abaci’ is out on Saturday 1st October 2016 across a multitude of labels: atterkiplivepic

LP – Riotska Records, Pumpkin Records, Ronce Records (FR), Prejudice Me Records, Abracadaboum (FR), Kibou Records, Uncomfortable Beach Party and Forwst Records (DE)

CD – Riotska Records, Pumpkin Records, Rebel Time Records (CAN) and Ronce Records (FR)

They will celebrate by holding a release gig at The Stag and Hounds in
Bristol on the same night.

Here’s the brand new and most excellent video for the track Picket Fence:

And, here’s what the band had to say about the song:

“‘Picket Fence’ was written back in 2014 when the estate that one of us live on in Bristol was targeted by the National Front/far right. They had armed themselves with spray paint and painted a vile slogan of racial hatred along the main road. Needless to say the graffiti was removed promptly. Bristol is a wonderfully diverse city and that is what makes it such a special place to live, and this behaviour will not be tolerated… and here we are 2 years on and our record is due for release soon and recently the estate has been targeted again. Only this time the houses of European nationals have been vandalised, destroyed and covered in 6 foot high graffiti saying “GO HOME” & “NOT WELCOME”.

This tune is in solidarity with all those that have been and continue to be directly affected by fascist behaviour and intimidation, furthermore it is an ode to every single individual that actively stands against the threat of oppression from the far right. Whether you partake in direct action, designing artwork, sing about it, fly post, give out info leaflets, run info stalls, organise benefits and fundraising events, wear the t-shirts – whatever it may be all the little things we do as individuals add up and contribute towards the greater good. Keep fighting, keep pushing forward and never relent. Their days are numbered.”

WE’RE ANTI-FASCIST THROUGH AND THROUGH!”
