`The Day The Country Died' is the long-awaited follow-up to Ian Glasper's successful `Burning Britain', and sees the author exploring in minute detail the obscure, esoteric, UK anarcho-punk scene of the early Eighties. If the bands in `Burning Britain' were loud, political and uncompromising, those examined in `The Day The Country Died' were even more so, totally prepared to risk their liberty to communicate the ideals they believed in so passionately. With Crass and Poison Girls opening the floodgates, the arrival of bands such as Zoundz. Flux Of Pink Indians, Conflict, Subhumans, Dirt, The Mob, Rudimentary Peni, Anti-Sect, Omega Tribe and Icons Of Fifth heralded a brand new age of honesty and integrity in underground music. It was a time when punk stopped being merely a radical fashion statement, and became a force for real social change; a genuine revolutionary movement, driven by some of the most challenging noises ever committed to tape. Anarchy, as regards punk rock, no longer meant `cash from chaos', it meant `freedom, peace and unity'.
