“On a faim!” was originally an anarchist music fanzine created in 1984.An entire network, with no geographical ties, grew up around the fanzine, helping to write articles and distribute them (often by hand). The fanzine’s name even began to appear in connection with the organisation of concerts (Ludwig Von 88, Raymonde et les Blancs Becs, les Thugs, Les Ejectés, Kortatu, Yo Pizza Jump, etc.) and the creation of radio programmes.
The On A Faim! label came into being at the end of the 80s, following the release of a host of live tapes and themed compilations: “A Bas Toutes Les Armées”, “Cette Machine Sert A Tuer Tous Les Fascistes”, “Ni Jah Ni Maitre”, “Pogo Avec Les Loups”. Then came the first artistic albums with Désert Culturel, Un Dolor, Have Nots, Kargols, Pleum, Mister Moonlight, Rude Boy System… Here again, the artistic choices were made primarily on the basis of human encounters, the attention paid to the bands’ approach and discourse, and their attitude to the public… even before listening to the slightest demo!
Archives de la Zone Mondiale wanted to pay tribute to this inspiring label, which marked the history of independent and committed music for nearly 15 years. With one of its founders, Jean Pierre Levaray, we have cleverly concocted a sort of musical anthology retracing the essential bands that have marked the history of the label and the fanzine.
On A Faim ! – Anarchy & Musik is a double 20-track vinyl compilation in a highly graphic gatefold sleeve, retracing the label’s extraordinary trajectory regardless of musical style: punk, of course, but also ska, hardcore and popular chanson…
Last but not least, all the royalties from this double vinyl compilation are donated to the Uzine (Le Havre) and Fanzinarium (Paris) fanzine libraries.
