The fast and furious tones of Anonymous Tip have been rocking venues up and down the UK since their inception back in 2002. They have made a real dent in the underground punk rock circuit as an unorthodox group of punk rockers with an ambiguous message. Songs about archaic politics, confessions of nymphomania, fascism within rock scenes and their deep routed suspicion of the music industry, have helped them gain a notorious and loyal following. Their musical statement of intent is to blend emotive chants with fast-paced grooves, at the same time keeping everything carefully crafted to ignite the monster inside and to provoke debate and passion.
Seminal punk legends Snuff went on to release Anonymous Tip's self-financed and self-produced debut 6-track EP Greetings from Wasteland through 10 Past 10 Records and took them on a unadulterated tour around the UK with Five Knuckle, Captain Everything and of course, the mighty Snuff. The EP SOLD OUT over 2,000 copies - and was released in other territories, where it sold well too, especially in Japan, where the band built up a cult following.
Since the release of their debut album Not Your Orthodox in 2008, the band have also gigged with the likes of Propagandhi, Enter Shikari and The King Blues.
The Weirder Brave is the first single of their second full length album Snitches & Stiches planned for release later this year. The Weirder Brave is another polemic statement of frustration at the rise of media coverage for the British National Party.
Vocalist Sanj Surati says; My best friend was picked on at school because he was white and I was brown. The shops in our high street used to have huge racist slogans painted on them calling all brown people obscenities and infestations. Young and old people had to hold their heads high in the face of such provocation. This song is about those people who dealt with this then and for those that are dealing with it now.
Their new single The Weirder Brave is all about the rise of the BNP in the UK, and with election time looming it couldnt be more relevant.
Rosey R*E*P*E*A*T thought it time to send them some greetings from the wasteland.
Anonymous Tip - who, what and why?
Describe your sound to a hard of hearing visitor from
What would you say to those people who for whatever
reason are feeling so shit about themselves and the system that they
either disengage from politics or even consider voting BNP?
What's next for Anonymous Tip?
Thanks to the band for their time and Jay at Fantana PR for setting things up
