Anti-Cimex/Arroganta Agitatorer Flyer

Flyers from early '80s Anti-Cimex gigs are tough to find for some reason. I have a few actual flyers, but I found a miniature reproduction of this one in Obituary zine #7, from England, in an interview with Arroganta Agitatorer. The zine was published in November 1984. The print quality wasn't so hot, but you can see all the relevant information. Maybe Cimex flyers are rare because they had boring artwork, so no one kept them! If you have a flyer to contribute, please get in touch.

Anti-Cimex Records promo flyers

This is one of a series of "tribute" posts for Kawakami of Disclose, who died June 5, 2007. As you likely know, Kawakami was one of the greatest fans of Anti-Cimex and Skitslickers, and his music itself was a perpetual tribute to the these bands' method of using Discharge's template but "extreming" it. Kawakami shared with me a great deal of memorabilia that he had collected. I don't think he ever saw this archive, as I never sent him the URL. It pains me to no end that he will never see the progress of this project, which owes so much to him.

Early Anti-Cimex gig in Finland

Janne from Selfish was a nephew, I believe, to the singer of Vaurio, who died a few years ago. Janne inherited his collection, including a flyer and newspaper clipping from Anti-Cimex's first gig in Finland. Vaurio was the only Finnish band that played with four Swedish bands at the gig in Naantali--known as Finland's most popular holiday destination! I talked to Vote Vasko about this gig, and he did not remember it having happened. He thought the first Cimex gig in Finland came much later. But here's the proof (anyway, Vote lived in a different town, hundreds of miles away). My Finnish is a little rusty, but I think the newspaper clipping expresses revulsion at these hellions' music and behavior. Killer line-up at this gig, no? Thanks very much to Janne for this material.
