Kevin 'Gluey' Read
Anti-Establishment was a UK Punk band, formed in 1978. They went through a number of line ups before settling on the lineup that would record the majority of their material: Gavin Gritton on vocals, Nick Freeston on drums, Haggis on lead guitar, and Kevin Read on bass. The first gig was in 1979. The band initially only went on to play around 25 shows but, as it says in the liner notes to the compilation of all of their work compiled by legendary label Captain Oi! Records in 1997, 'the name Anti-Establishment is still held in high esteem amongst the Oi!/Punk Fraternity'.
The third and final single was a double A side 'Anti-men' and 'Misunderstood', again produced by Rat Scabies. A line up change saw Gary Dawson on Guitar after Haggis left to spend time building up his own garage business.
The band reformed in 2013 and played the Rebellion Punk Festival.
