THE PACK

First London show since 1981 for THE PACK Supported by Desperate Measures & London Sewage Company.

The origins of The Pack started with the original band the Pack of Lies. It consisted of myself Kirk Brandon, John Fuller (An old school friend) and a Scottish drummer called Rab Fae Beith. We rehearsed and got the songs together at John’s uncle’s house in Stanmore.

The Pack itself was formed sometime in 1978 in Clapham, South London amongst the punk anarchist scene set amongst the backdrop of the totalitarian government of Margret Thatcher – at a time when the country stood at the abyss of total chaos.

Looking back, the lyrics to the songs were simplistic, aggressive, confused, funny and silly – much like myself at the time. Life consisted at the time of trying to survive on the streets and squats of the south London- the whole period was funny, violent, grim and all at the same time, the band mirrored its surroundings – so no excuses made.
