Great Collapse, the melodic hardcore supergroup fronted by Strike Anywhere singer Thomas Barnett is once again combining utopian socialism, political activism and raging punk rock on their second album, Neither Washington Nor Moscow… Again – out January 26th on End Hits Records.

Today, the band have released a new song, “Atomic Calendar”, for The International Anti-Facist Defence Fund.

“Great Collapse is honoured to co-present with the IAFDF the release of this last single before the album drops January 26. “Neither Washington Nor Moscow … Again”. These crucial times call for ideas and actions that step beyond solidarity. This is about mutual aid and support across borders, cultures and conditions to resist hatred and division, and really build a worldwide movement that flexes with conflict, heals its wounds, and learns from its mistakes. “Atomic Calendar” is a song about breathing and listening, but also digging past the noise of false identity and reaction, to build the strength to stand in the breach and help each other through this ragged bottleneck of history. We are anti-fascist because we love this world with all of its beauty and differences, and this culture of community self defence is the way we challenge hatred, violence and viral propaganda-on the streets, in our institutions, and the highest political offices.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
