Antisect were an anarcho-punk (and later on, crust punk) band formed in 1982 in Daventry, Northamptonshire, UK. Their debut album, In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983 on Flux Of Pink Indians’ Spiderleg Records label and reached number 4 in the indie album charts. This was followed in 1985 by the release of the 7" single Out from the Void, which reached number 2 in the indie singles chart and, along with Amebix’s 1985 Arise! album, is considered the starting point of the crust punk genre. The band were going to release a follow up second full-length album entitled Welcome to the New Dark Ages, but it was never finished or released by the band. However, some tracks that were going to be on this album appear on the live album Peace is Better Than a Place in History, as well as many live bootlegs. The band were among the instigators of the squat venue scene in the mid to late ’80s before finally splitting in 1987. Pete Lyons is now a music producer/recording engineer working out of Zed One Studios in London and contributes a chapter to Ian Glasper’s book "The Day The Country Died", which chronicles the anarcho-punk scene of the time.
