Conflict is an English anarcho-punk band originally based in Eltham in South London.  Formed
in 1981, the band's original line up consisted of: Colin Jerwood (vocals), Francisco 'Paco'
Carreno (drums), John (bass guitar), Steve (guitars), Pauline (vocals), Paul a.k.a. 'Nihilistic
Nobody' (visuals).  Their first release was the EP "The House That Man Built" on Crass
Records.  By the time they released their first album, It's Time to See Who's Who, on Corpus
Christi Records, Pauline and Paul had left the band. Conflict later set up its own Mortarhate
Records label, which put out releases by other artists including Hagar the Womb, Icons of
Filth, Lost Cherrees, The Apostles, and Stalag 17.
In 1983, Steve Ignorant, who was at the time a member of the band Crass, guested on the
band's pro-animal rights single "To A Nation of Animal Lovers".  After the dissolution of Crass,
Ignorant later became second vocalist for Conflict on a semi-permanent basis. This followed a
1986 gig in Brixton, London, when he had joined the band on stage for a few numbers.
The band has always been outspoken regarding issues such as anarchism, animal rights,
the anti-war movement and in their support for the organisation Class War, and a number of their
gigs during the 1980s were followed by riots and disturbances. [
