LEGENDARY HC PUNK BAND MDC ARE HEADING ABACK TO EUROPE. MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) is an American hc punk rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1981. The band was subsequently based in San Francisco, California, and are currently based in Portland, Oregon. Originally formed as The Stains before changing their name, the band also changed their name to a different initialism of MDC with every new record released. They play fast hardcore punk music espousing far-left sociopolitical ideals, with the band never shy of expressing their animal rights and anti-capitalist convictions.

“Born in the depts of the abyss we like to call home, the only punk rock bar in Amsterdam, Cafe the Minds. We play hardcore punk, or punk, or what ever you want to call it. With a hint of stoner, metal, glam, speedrock. We mix all our influences into a solid wall off sound. From bands link Stiff Little Fingers and GG Alin, to Minor Threat, Out Cold and Bonny Tyler, from Kyuss to Slayer, we like it all.”

Benefit for FREE SVEN & NATASHA – In July 2012 Sven and Natasha were raided and arrested in Amsterdam under a European arrest warrant. They were accused of ‘conspiracy to blackmail’ in relation to Huntingdon Life Sciences (recently rebranded as Envigo). HLS is Europe’s largest animal testing laboratory and is the most notorious and protested lab in history. The UK government has gone to extraordinary lengths to stop people protesting against HLS, with increasing targeting and repression of campaigners. Sven and Natasha were extradited to the UK a few months ago for their trial and face up to 14 years in prison.
