Some words about our name. As Ian MacKaye said «Punk is a free space where anything can go — a series of actions and reactions, and people rebelling and then rebelling against rebelling.» Were not rebelling against anything but close minded people, who just sit around and dont note the real thing. But they call themselves punks. Thats what were against. Thats what prefix «anti» means.
The second part of our name is slogan «Deads not punk». As one can notice this slogan is just antonym of «Punks not dead» the classic punk phrase of british band The Exploited. Over 20 years this slogan «Punks not dead» serves as the anthem, icon and idol for punkers all around the world. But in the new millenium we can say that this slogan became something like soldout brand replicated on countless t-shirts, stickers, buttons etc. Therefore phrase «Deads not punk» seems to be more actual and more adequate.
Deads not punk!
