Bristol dub-punk act Atterkop have been working hard on their forthcoming debut album ‘Liber Abaci’, due out on October 1st via Riot Ska Records. Bringing together dub and hardcore punk influences with strong political themes Atterkop are unveiling their first new music since 2013’s self-titled EP.
“Picket Fence” is the first track off “Liber Abaci” and you can skank your brains out to it below.
Here is what the band had to say on the song and video:
“Picket Fence” was written back in 2014 when the estate that one of us live on in Bristol was targeted by the National Front/far right. They had armed them selves with spray paint and painted a vile slogan of racial hatred along the main road. Needless to say the graffiti was removed promptly. Bristol is a wonderfully diverse city and that is what makes it such a special place to live, and this behaviour will not be tolerated… and here we are 2 years on and our record is due for release soon and recently the estate has been targeted again. Only this time the houses of European nationals have been vandalised, destroyed and covered in 6 foot high graffiti saying “GO HOME” & “NOT WELCOME”.
