The Anti Nowhere League started up in 1980 in Royal Tunbridge Wells. They released their debut single "Streets of London" b/w "So What" in 1981. The single reached number 48 in the UK charts and would have probably got higher had it not been seized by the Police's Obscenity Squad due to the profanity laden b-side. "So What" has since become the band's anthem and has been covered by Metallica who play the track regularly to this day in concert.
This was followed up by their seminal debut album "We are...the League" in 1982 on WXYZ Records. This was followed by their "Live in Yugoslavia" album but the band has split by the end of the 1980's. Since reforming the band have released some incredible albums such as "The Horse is Dead", "Out Of Control", "The Road to Rampton" and more.
In 2017 the Anti-Nowhere League have released their latest album "League Style ( Loosen Up )" which includes their own unique take on classi Ska & Reggae tunes such as "Long Shot Kick De Bucket", "Johnny Too Bad", "Suzanne Beware of the Devil" and more.
