Breed specific legislation (BSL) is a law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance, usually because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs. These dogs have more against them than any other breed. They are regularly maligned by the media, feared and misunderstood by the public, too often owned by abusive or irresponsible individuals, innocent victims of kill policies in shelters.
Please help promote this event and/or maybe collect donations from family, friends, acquaintances, etc., and bring them to the show. We'll have a representative of the anti BSL Chicago community collecting donations, sharing information and raising awareness. These beings need our help. Enough is enough. It's time we educate ourselves and others on this issue to break the negative image sensational media has created for them. END BSL NOW!!!!
CONFLICT is an English anarcho-punk band originally based around Eltham in South London. Formed in 1981, the band's original line up consisted of: Colin Jerwood (vocals), Francisco 'Paco' Carreno (drums), Big John (bass guitar), Steve (guitars), Pauline (vocals), Paul aka 'Nihilistic Nobody' (visuals). Their first release was the EP "The House That Man Built" on Crass Records. By the time they released their first album, It's Time to See Who's Who, on Corpus Christi Records, Pauline and Paul had left the band. Conflict later set up its own Mortarhate Records label, which put out releases by other artists including Hagar the Womb, Icons of Filth, Lost Cherrees, The Apostles, Exitstance, Stalag 17, Admit You're Shit and Potential Threat.
In 1983, Steve Ignorant, who was at the time a member of the band Crass, guested on the band's pro-animal rights single "To A Nation of Animal Lovers". After the dissolution of Crass, Ignorant later became second vocalist for Conflict on a semi-permanent basis. This followed a 1986 gig in Brixton, London, when he had joined the band on stage for a few numbers.
The band has always been outspoken regarding issues such as anarchism, animal rights, the anti-war movement and in their support for the organisation Class War, and a number of their gigs during the 1980s were followed by riots and disturbances.
The Mortarhate logo has often been mistakenly interpreted as a reference to the initials CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament); however, the band's drummer, Paco, states that it is a nihilist symbol. It incorporates two 'A's for anarchy and autonomy, and an 'N' for nihilism. The logo originally appeared in 1980 as a graffiti stencil, designed by Toxic Graffity (sic) fanzine editor Mike Diboll and a former member of The Heretics whom he had previously interviewed in the fanzine. It later appeared in Thanatos, a small circulation pamphlet also produced by Diboll.

RESISTANT CULTURE (Grind Crust/Punk Metal warriors from Los Angeles,California featuring members of TERRORIZER)
“Bringing you the sound of “urgent tribal grindcrust”, Resistant Culture is one of the few recent truly anarcho grind bands that follow in the sonic audio wake of Napalm Death & Terrorizer... This release is the perfect slam to your head.”
-Janet Willis Metal Maniacs
“...All One Struggle, their newest, is equally as killing, just more varied in tempos. Potent high-grade crust explosives—pull the pin and run!”
-Shawn Bosler Decibel Magazine
“...under the leadership of Terrorizer vocalist Anthony Rezhawk in a war on the great callous, concrete devourer that's gobbling up liberties and livelihood, and shitting out pollutants and poverty. The songwriting's far tighter than its predecessor, which seemed to stop far more often than necessary to have lovely, haunting flute moments as if it were taking in a picnic spot on a long motorway journey. Instead the chants, hooting owls(!) and traditional Native American instruments are absorbed into some orthodox Bolt Thrower-brand grinding death. The lyrics, which take big spoonfuls of tribal spirituality and indignant anarchopunk only add to the fearsome, atmospheric and apocalyptic end result; the soundtrack to the world you've just destroyed.”
-James Hoare Terrorizer Magazine

Shaman Records started back in 1999 with the original name Jovenes Libertarios Collective. A year later we changed the name to Libre Pensamiento Records as the first incarnation of Shaman Records. Our first show was held at a Taqueria Rodriquez at 47th & Western Ave with the support of friends. Since then Shaman Records has booked hundreds of shows for bands on tour in the USA and internationally. Our mission is to bring the best underground bands from all over the world and keep the spirit alive with bands who play hardcore punk, anarcho punk, crust, d-beat, grindcore, black metal, death metal,etc. Being an open minded label, we are here to share the music with those who want to experience the BANDS LIVE & LOUD !
