Not to be confused with the later US Thrash band of the same name, Anthrax were a pioneering Anarcho-Punk band in the vein of Crass and Conflict who came to be fairly legendary in the Punk scene of the day. They toured extensively with the likes of Conflict, Naked , X-Cretas and D.I.R.T., and also played two tours of Holland, arranged by Dutch band The Ex.
