Interview:2007-Crisis

1.. Right from the start, Crisis seemed to be interested in shock tactics, of making things happen and getting up people’s noses. Is that a fair summary? No. The idea Tony and I had was that Crisis would be deadly serious and that our politics were to be taken seriously. That, in itself, turned out to be shocking enough for some people so inevitably we did get up some people’s noses – especially in the mass media. But, that wasn’t our raison d’etre. 2.. What was the Canio Club in…

Interview:2008-Rockarilla340-Tony

Interview with Douglas P. and Tony Wakeford about the Crisis era (Aldo Chimenti for Rockerilla) 1.Why after 3 decades did you decide stopping the blackout and talking again about your early punk experience with Crisis? Well Doug has always handled the Crisis side of things and even after all this time it still seems to have a kind of life of its own. It makes sense to have our perspective on it and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality (not sure thetas the right word!) of the final concert….

Interview:2008-Rockarilla340-Douglas

Interview with Douglas P. and Tony Wakeford about the Crisis era (Aldo Chimenti for Rockerilla) 1.Why after 3 decades did you decide stopping the blackout and talking again about your early punk experience with Crisis? We appear to have become more relaxed about an aspect of our joint past that was for many years a difficult memory to lose. Besides, with the various CD reissues of different Crisis releases including the new ‘Ends!’ CD of our final concert supporting Magazine and Bauhaus in May, 1980 it also seemed appropriate to…

Interview:2008-D-Side48-Tony

Have you participated, in one way or another to the release of “Ends!” ? Only in being the skinny speed freak that played on it. This was very much down to Doug’s ideas and hard work. The fact to release this last concert can let suppose that this moment of your carreer has kept an importance in your mind. What kind of remembrance do you keep today from the end of this project, what does it represent in your soul ? To be honest even with the nostalgic glow of being slim…

Interview:2008-D-Side48-Douglas

How came the idea to release “Ends!”? A number of factors led to this writing of possibly the final chapter to the story of my first group Crisis. The American release in 2005 of the compilation album called ‘Holocaust Hymns’ was a success and, in turn, it’s led to an invitation to contribute the track ‘UK’79’ to another compilation album being prepared by Rough Trade/V2 that will also feature people like Neil Young, The Beat, Woody Guthrie, The Smiths and The Byrds! It’s very nice to be recognised so many…

Interview:2008-Elegy56-Tony

You met each other in 1975. How exactly ? Well, if my memory is correct it was on a coach to London from Woking to attend a anti-Fascist event. As neither of us had comb overs or beards i think we kind of gravitated together. As shows « UK79 », chosen for our cd sampler, most of Crisis music was very genuine punk rock. Did you feel close to other punk bands of the time ? Not really. I suppose on the political level it was the The Clash. I think both Doug and…
