1st of May: The Streets Are Ours

This year, Fire and Flames is going the more cultural route and attending „May Day“ festival in Prague:

As is customary for this date, options abound.



Buenos Aires

In Germany…

Finally, in the more classically red category of the political spectrum, yet still presenting a good overview of revolutionary and class struggle oriented demonstrations on the first of May:

While May day is our day and not one to run around behind Nazis, its still important to be supportive of those unfortunate to have Nazi demonstrations in their city on this date.

Wherever you are, take care, stay safe, and give State and Nazis a day to remember!



30.4 Bremen: Naziaufmarsch Verhindern! Hamburg: Flora Bleibt!

Otherwise, also tomorrow and also good:

Taking a Break from the Madness, New Literature: Classics from Bakunin, Proudhon, Makhno, Kropotkin, etc. / WW2 Resistance Memoirs / Others…

Just when we thought we had enough of our hands with the 1st of May, the new collections, the new shop, the solidarity concerts and the who knows how many other projects we have running parallel to each other, comes a little more in the form of a delivery of books from the great and glorious AK Press.

Six new titles, as well as several re-stocks. Classics, WW2 resistance memoirs, Crimethinc texts, make the bulk of this series. As usual, clickify on the picture to read further infos about each one.

„the „passion for destruction“ is a call to build a new world free of oppression, not a cult of violence. He argues that anarchism is a philosophy of morality and solidarity, based not on wishful thinking or naïve beliefs about the goodness of humanity but on a practical, radical critique of wealth and power.“

He wrote that „Property is Theft,“ but he also wrote a whole hell of a lot of less known stuff as well, it probably wouldnt hurt you to read about it.

Two terribly painfully strong and inspiring memoirs of armed Jewish resistance to the Nazis during World War 2. Highly, highly suggested reading.

Finally, the re-stocks include „Anarchist Morality“ by Peter Kropotkin, a collection of essays by Nestor Makhno, Partisanas, as well as „Days of War, Nights of Love“ from Crimethinc.

Spring is Here: New Collections from Mob Action and Uptight65

The springtime madness is finally coming into full swing. This means not only the ritualistic press hysteria around the upcoming doomsday (otherwise known as 1st of May), but also that our favorite labels come out with new clothes! New collections from Mob Action, Partisano (finally, after two years!), Uptight65, and of course Fire and Flames. We begin today with Mob Action and Uptight 65, and will continue in the coming days with Partisano. The new Fire and Flames collection (of which two designs have already arrived) will come sometime around end of this week

In the „less talk, more rock(s)“ spirit of the upcoming 1st of May, here is a selection in pictures of the new designs. More infos about each one can be had by clicking on the corresponding image, and if you want to see ALL of them, then we suggest a visit to the corresponding section of the Fire and Flames site.



First, the novelty…sweatpants!

These are accompanied by six different shirt designs, several of which are available in a variety of different colors:


Significantly less street, but all the more retro and subcultural, Barcelonas Uptight 65. This is just a selection of their new designs, the complete array can be seen directly on our page. Classic designs such as the much loved „Bruce Lee“ shirt, „Modern World,“, and „Orange“ are also available again in all sizes. But on to the new…

Göttingen, 2.6 / 4.6: Antifa Solikonzerte: Movement, Talco, Feine Sahne Fischfilet, No Te Va Gustar, …..

Niedersachsens „most significant left-wing extremist concert organizer“ (for the second year in a row, says the Verfassungschutz!) Fire and Flames presents you two evenings of musically diverse entertainment, and all for the good cause of supporting those faced with state repression in the aftermath of some very successful anti-Nazi activities of the recent months.

This is also why we took the very mature decision of not organizing a concert on the night of the 3rd, so that you can all get a good nights rest before heading to Braunschweig and handing the Nazis their next fiasco. After that, we again celebrate in Göttingen!

For those you planning on coming from other cities, we strongly suggest making use of the online „Vorverkauf“ option, which you can find here. All other informations regarding the concert you can see on the flyer image.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Thursday, June 2nd
Faithful to the Fire and Flames style, a night as international and musically eclectic as ca be. Starting with up and coming Göttingen punk band MILITANTE PAZIFISTEN, followed by catchy anarchist punkrock from Western „Canada“ from THE REBEL SPELL, continuing with Latin ska and reggae from Uruguayas NO TE VA GUSTAR, to end with power pop played by Copenhagens THE MOVEMENT.

The Movement
, Socialist Power Pop, excellent Mod band from Copenhagen

No Te Va Gustar, Latin SkaReggaePunk from Uruguay.
We are terribly excited about this band. They fill arenas with thousands in South America, and we count ourselves very lucky to have them in Göttingen! Here they are, playing live in Cuba:

The Rebel Spell, New addition to the Fire and Flames Music family, and visiting Göttingen as part of their first European tour presenting „A Beautiful Future.“ A must see!

Militante Pazifisten
, Engaged young Punkrock from Göttingen, sadly as far as we know with no video.

Saturday, June 4th

Talco, Needs almost no introduction, one of the finest political skapunk bands around, from Marghera (Italy).

Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Future Legends of Skapunk, from Rostock

Wasted Youth, Antifascist Streetpunk from Schwäbisch Gmund and the most recent addition to the Fire and Flames family. They will be preseting their new 7″ „Remembering Means Fighting.“
