After nearly 20 years of raging against oppression and injustice, it is sometimes easy to forget that this multi‐cultural British crew are also one of the most musically inventive, explosively exciting live bands on the planet. Now, their strongest line up yet combines their trademark fusion of punk rock,electronic beats, reggae, bhangra and hip‐hop that has attracted many famous
fans, from Primal Scream to Radiohead, Sinead O’Connor to Chuck D, all former touring partners and studio collaborators.
Over the years, this ever‐evolving band have continued to expand their agenda, delivering live soundtracks to film and tackling operas, while taking their fiery mix of music and social activism to
far‐flung places where conventional western rock bands rarely tour: Morocco, India, Cuba and the favelas of Brazil.
Their live soundtrack to French film ‘La Haine’ acted as a catalyst to forming the line‐up, where founding guitarist Steve Savale has been re‐joined by original members Dr Das (Bass) and Rocky Singh (drums). For the Music Beyond Mainstream commissioned soundtrack of George Lucas’s dystopian sci-fi film THX1138 former vocalist Ghetto Priest returned alongside ADF’s newer members,
Aktarvata and Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee.
