    Anti Cimex Biography

    Swedish hardcore punk band. Anti Cimex formed in 1981 and existed roughly up to 1993. They were considered as one of the so-called D-beat punk bands, in Sweden also called "Kängpunk", inspired in particular by the English hardcore punk band [a257137], who invented the style.

    Band members: Tomas Jonsson (2), Charlie Claeson, Robert Jörgensen (2), Cliff Lundberg
    Band ex-members: , Jean-Louis Huhta, Conrad (8), Joakim "Joker" Pettersson, Sixten Andersson, Nillen, Bonni Pontén

    Anti Cimex were a Swedish crust/metalpunk band, based in Skövde, Göteborg, Linköping, and Malmö, at different times, that formed in 1981. They were one of the first bands to define Scandinavian hardcore punk. Their second 7", Raped Ass, is considered to be a subgenre-defining D-beat record. Scene historian Peter Jandreus describes the group as the most famous Swedish punk band of the 1977-87 era.

    Their name is taken from the Swedish pest control company with the same name, the name of this company, in turn, comes from the Latin name of a particular type of bedbug; Cimex.

    Formed in 1981, the original line-up was: Jonsson - bass, Nillen - vocals, Charlie - drums and Jocke - guitar. After rehersing for a while, they released their first 7" single "Anarkist Attack".

    In 1982, Anti Cimex kicked out Nillen. Jonsson took over the vocals part and Conrad took over the bass playing. They also released a new 7" single later in the year called "Raped Ass".

    In 1983 they released another 7" single "Victims Of A Bombraid".

    In 1986, Anti Cimex released a mini-Lp (12") called "Criminal Trap". (This 12" is also included as a bonus on the "Absolut Country of Sweden" CD). At this time, Jocke had got tired of the band and they asked Cliff, if he wanted to join the band, but he said no and the rest of the band members got tired of the problems and it resulted in the band splitting up.

    In 1990, Anti Cimex decided to start the band again after Cliff had agreed to join and they say, that it is thanks to him, that they regrouped. They released the comeback album "Absolut Country Of Sweden" the same year.

    In 1993, Anti Cimex released a raw live album "Made In Sweden." The show was also shot on video, but never released. They later released a new live 7" single "Fucked In Finland" and later on they released the album "Scandinavian Jawbreaker." After the release of this album, the band split up and the members started in other bands, such as Driller Killer (Cliff) and Wolfpack (Jonsson).

    In 2005, Dead City records released the "A Tribute To Anti-Cimex" LP, featuring a line up of d-beat and crust bands from all over the world, that were influenced by Anti Cimex. Notable bands, include Disclose (Japan), Wolfbrigade (Sweden), Ratos de Porão (Brazil) and Doom (UK).
