Inventive Twickenham Punks, Throwing Dub & Metal Into The mix - Trailerpark Trash


The Twickenham based 4-piece have just celebrated the release of their debut single,
‘Polemic To The Suits’, a complex, dark, brooding composition about the pitfalls
of being an artist in a formulaic, accountant-led, music industry.

The single was supported by Radio 1’s Mike Davies, who played it in his Punk Show. It also won
XFM’s ‘Heatseeker’ slot on the Rock Show, hosted by Martin Bate, as well as being
B listed at Total Rock by the legendary Tony Wilson (Tommy Vance’s R1 producer).
Video C also ran a clip of the video in their Rock Section.

A new single, the epic ‘Mouth Of The Sufferer’, will be released on Monday 7th
July 2008, followed by the band’s debut album, ‘Not Your Orthodox’ on Monday
21st July 2008. The fast and furious tones of Anonymous Tip have been rocking
venues up and down the UK since their inception.

They have made a real dent in the underground punk rock circuit as an unorthodox group of
punk rockers with an ambiguous message. Songs about Marge Simpson, confessions of
nymphomania, fascism within rock scenes and their deep routed suspicion of the music industry,
have helped them gain a notorious and loyal following.

Their musical statement of intent is to blend emotive chants with fast-paced grooves,
at the same time, keeping everything carefully crafted to ignite the monster inside and
to provoke debate and passion.

The core of the band formed in a Twickenham attic, although all 4 members hadn’t
even met each other before they were invited to perform their first written song ‘Slap
Happy Bappy’ on a University TV show. Taran, Simon, Adrian and Sanj’s performance
on the show, and a string of London dates, kicked off a buzz loud enough for them
to get noticed by seminal punk legends, Snuff.

Snuff went on to release Anonymous Tip’s self-financed and self-produced debut 6-track EP “Greetings from Wasteland” through 10 Past 10 Records and took them on a unadulterated tour around the UK
with Five Knuckle, Captain Everything and of course, the mighty Snuff.

The EP sold out – over 2,000 copies - and was released in other territories, where
it sold well too, especially in Japan, where the band built up a cool following. In
fact, another AT track, ‘I Can’t Skateboard’, was included on a Japanese Punk
Compilation album, ‘Story Of Three Tails’, alongside artists like Ten Foot Pole and
Frenzal Rhomb.

On the back of the success of the 6-track EP and the band’s defiance to submit
to the norm, they started to get noticed more and British tours followed with cool
kids, Through Silence and ex King Prawn hero Babar Luck.

Babar Luck: “I have a lot of love for my friends in Anonymous Tip”

This helped them to build their live prowess & show that Anonymous Tip have now
become an awesome live band, spreading a strong, word-of-mouth buzz that has
accredited & welcomed them into the Underground punk scene.
The start of 2006 saw the departure of Anonymous Tip’s long time bassist and
friend Simon. However, new recruit, Chris Brazier, has taken the band to the next
level with his 6 string bass creativity, adding a new twist to the hotly anticipated
full-length album aptly titled ‘Not your Orthodox’ due for release on June 2nd
2008.

Last year was a great year for Anonymous Tip. Early mixes from the new record
“Not Your Orthodox” helped them to gain a newfound fan following that is building
upon their status on the UK rock circuit. So much so, that Visual Director Adam
Kaleta, (MTV, Jackass etc) used their music on a pan-European, five-part terrestrial
television show to document Nissan’s Urban Challenge event.
