Bad Breeding formed in the winter of 2013 in Stevenage - a commuter-belt town north of London. Drawn together by an enthusiasm for old anarcho and a complete disdain for the misrepresentation of Britain's working- class identity, Bad Breeding is an attempt to call out the rank injustices and political distortion peddled to people existing on the fringes. Made up of friends who muddled together through state school, the band serves as an outlet from the monotony of labouring work and humiliating temp jobs.

The band say of the record, "Divide was put together a couple of months after the EU referendum and particular parts of the record sought to make sense of the confusion and misdirection that was so prevalent last summer. In some ways it’s an attempt to resist the impulse to collapse under the weight of perpetual distortion packaged by certain sections of the British media, but at times we simply found ourselves instinctively lashing out in bewilderment at what was unravelling around us: the division and derision of certain sections of society, the enablement of xenophobia and the continued manipulation of working-class identity by politicians and press organisations alike.

Once again the relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics. Standouts include "The More the Merrier" - which sounds like prime Icons of Filth from 1985 whilst last track "Endless Impossibility" is a five-minute-plus dirge that hits hard like Killing Joke but with more noise and chaos. On Divide, Bad Breeding have upped the intensity and made an even stronger album. Rather than being self-released, they have now joined La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Iron Lung in the States.

"the Stevenage noisemongers have begun to cement themselves as one of the most exhilarating live bands in the country" The Quietus

"airless, brutally simple and efficient monochrome noise, intense and compacted.. The best punk band in Britain" Guardian

"a wall of noise that has never sounded so necessary. There's nothing retro about these punks, just a purity of intent that lacks bitterness and shines with defiant pride. Self released and financed by their day jobs, they're getting their hands dirty and keeping things just about as hardcore DIY as possible." i-D

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
