Hooligan Press

Crowbar magazine

Partial online archive of Crowbar, an anarchist squatter magazine published in Brixton, South London in the 1980s.

The Crowbar was originally the fortnightly newsletter of Brixton Squatters Aid: "initially a freesheet duplicated on waste paper, which became a rowdy class war type magazine that loved to wind up the police, council, lefties and pretty much everyone except the collective." - Past Tense Publications.

At least 49 issues were published (?) from 1983 to 1987(?). (If you know more - add a comment below).

Radio is my bomb: a DIY manual for pirates

Booklet cover

A pirate radio how-to guide published by Hooligan Press in London in April, 1987. The title comes from a quote from Chantal Paternostre, a Belgian anarchist who said it when arrested on trumped up terrorism charges. She worked for Radio Air Libre, a Brussels pirate radio station. She was eventually released from prison after more than a year detained: most of it in solitary confinement.
