On Sunday 10th November we played at the Breaking Barriers Festival at Het Depot in Leuven, Belgium and absolutely loved it. Great venue, superb sound and lovely people.

More sad news I’m afraid – Max Bode, one of my closest friends and the inspiration behind the song ‘Diffrability’ passed away Friday 1st November 2019 at the age of 25.

He always had a smile on his face and whenever we got together we’d always have a great laugh at the expense of those straights who couldn’t see past his wheelchair. Fucking lovely bloke and will be missed by many.
Max you’re not insignificant
You were not so uniform
I’m proud to have known you
And glad that you weren’t of the norm
All My love

I’m absolutely gutted to have to tell you that Dave King, who designed the Crass symbol in 1977, has died. He was a bloody good mate and I’ll miss him.
My thoughts and arms reach out to Dionne, his soulmate of many years. But we can all take comfort in the knowledge that a part of Dave is emblazoned on people’s bodies all over the world.
See you later Dave. You’ll never be forgotten. Here’s to you mate.

To celebrate the fact that One Little Indian are now distributing the Crass Catalogue on behalf of Crass Records, they handed out free Crass Stencils. Here are just a few photos of the results. What did you do with your stencil?
