Toxic Waste

From: Newtownards

Active: 1982-86

Style: hardcore punk



DIY/Anarcho-punk band inspired by Crass/Conflict, associated with the Anarchy Centre and the Warzone Collective in Belfast (see It Makes You Want To Spit! for more information about the centre). Second vocalist Roy Wallace AKA Wally joined in 1984 when the band moved to Belfast.

They released a split 12" single with Stalag 17 on Conflict's Mortarhate Records in 1985 which helped establish the Warzone label. Both bands plus Asylum shared on a 3-band Warzone Collective compilation album titled "We Will Be Free" the following year.

Toxic Waste toured europe a couple of times before splitting in 1986. The Belfast LP was released posthumously. Roy and Marty later formed Bleeding Rectum.
