‘Pub Quiz #5 – We are all on a no-fly list, are you?’ – Anarcho-nihilist flyposter zine by anti-social hooligans in Bristol (Dark Matter Publications)
Sunday, October 9th, 2016
As part of Dark Matter Publications and in line with the nihilist ethos of the project we present this latest zine by some anti-social hooligans in Bristol. It’s made up of cut-n-paste flyposters that have been spread around the city and the originals are collected here for the first time. These are not professional posters of the official movement, but dirty DIY amateur efforts about topics as diverse as police repression, eco-action, surveillance and consumerism. This is what happens when fevered twisted minds get hold of stationary and scissors. Being mainly flyposters, the zine contains pretty much no prolonged verbal diarrhea, long-winded sectarian tripe or boring pontifications posing as critical theory or whatever.
Gross Misconduct and the Guerilla Massive : Poems and Lunacy from Bristol (Dark Matter Publications)
Friday, February 28th, 2014
“You won’t be taken hostage, you’ll be knocked well out of the game!”
325 is pleased to present a new zine for Dark Matter Publications, called “Gross Misconduct and the Guerilla Massive”. By printing this, we give a shout echoing to Darko Mathers, who died in January 2014, as we add to what he started. Anti-social, anti-civilisation, anarchist-nihilist and individualist writings and publishing. We know that Darko would have liked this pamphlet that we present here.
This 28 page personal zine is written by a hardcore anarchist vandal in Bristol, because they want to get some of their ideas down on paper. This zine is not the latest theoretical emission of dogma and over-serious waffling coming from the egg-head part of the anarchist movement. It’s a rowdy collection of poems and thoughts, as well as original photographs and images. For the sake of clarity, as some of our non-english readers might not necessarily understand, “massive” is also used for “gang” or “posse”. This zine contains UK lunacy that some folks might find potentially offensive or confusing.
“These are some of the observations I’ve put on paper that warm the spirit in my blood, not patiently waiting on bus stops or dole queues, or smiling at people I don’t give a shit about, but I do it all the same, because it helps the day run along that much smoother. I kick myself for the social compromises I make, politeness for an easy ride.”

I will wander the world alone carrying my hatred and scorn everywhere.
Alone in struggle.
Alone in victory and in defeat.
Darko was the one of the few; intelligent, articulate, original and brave. His thinking had ranged from anarchist-syndicalism to insurrectional nihilist-anarchy. He also liked Class War (the newspaper), because it was close to many ordinary peoples thinking, as he saw it.
The last time we spoke to each other was in December of 2013. Darko had really developed his ideas, and our exchanges were on a new level. He spoke very eloquently about his interest in chaos, the art and writing of Austin Osman Spare and the anti-civilisation critique, but he seemed to be a little bit lost, and struggling against the pull of a much greater self-destruction. I tried to warn him but to no avail, and to my regret. We were due to meet again soon, but now I will conserve my words for the limitless sky.
I remember one time we were sitting around the first year I met him, 2011, trying to figure out who each other was, and he related to me that reading Max Stirner whilst taking Psilocybin at an early age of 14 had propelled him towards what he was. I didn’t doubt it. He was a reckless genius.
Darko was in his early twenties. He died too soon, like many of the best.
Into the void, my friend, we’ll meet again in the stars.
Souls who are grieving for this world, this is why I call you to gather together.
The flag is already waving.
It is black; it stands for mourning. Forward then, wild Promethei. The cry of vengeance is music sweet and dear.
Today it is necessary to kill, to destroy … tomorrow we will be daisies …
Forward, Federation of Sorrow!
The last time I saw Darko Mathers, we spent a wonderful three days together, sharing writing, thoughts, conspiracies and finally putting together the pamphlet critiquing Civil Anarchism which was a term that he had coined. As usual, I found myself astounded by the coherence, breadth and eloquence of Darko’s political analysis. He was a wild, thoughtful, enquiring, compassionate, and brilliant man, slightly lost amongst a generation in whom he could find few equals. I am proud to have known him and I will miss his company, his sensitivity and affection. I hope he knew how greatly I admired him.
Nothing delicate can survive here.
Only the brutal.
Seagulls brash as boys.
The rest sit thin-skinned as frogs,
trying to throw themselves like the sun into the formidable sea.
So, farewell for now, my friend, until the next round of magic and mayhem against civilisation.

Text taken from our pamphlet printed with Dark Matter Publications – ‘Anarchy – Civil or Subversive?’ : A Collection of Texts Against Civil Anarchism.
Indymedia UK & Bristol have repeatedly allowed their websites to be used as platforms to smear and denigrate the insurrectional project, that of the FAI/CCF/IRF, 325 and the anarchists of praxis.
It is known for a long time that these sites allow the spreading of lies and falsities against the insurrectionals, and that they allow the publishing of photos of demonstrations without naturally blurring the faces of those taking part, compromising their security, and most disgusting, those being arrested, rapidly aiding the filling of police files with their actions.
Not only do they allow the publishing and dissemination of rumours which only serve repression but they have acted as judges on the supposed nature of the sabotages and attacks. They sought to impose their discrimination on the attacks and upon the action groups, aiming at having a dominating influence on their behaviour, like the civil anarchists who also believed through their hysterical denunciations they could impose their own servility on the uncontrollables.
Their hostility to our projects is nothing surprising, as IMC UK & Bristol are tiny forums for the last desperate cries of the British activist herd who are stuck in the mire of legalism and so-called ‘direct’ democracy. Despite continuous anarchist property destruction and the riots of 2011, the ‘movement’ has been shown to be almost totally out-of-touch and out-of-date; the fire of individual insurgency was not in need of amateur journalistic fleas, keyboard kaisers or do-gooder hyaenas.

PDF: Civil anarchism book
Bored of the type of anarchism that seems to exist only as a boring routine of endless meetings and crap benefit gigs full of self-important tossers?
Sick of middleclass mummys boys pretending to be proles?
Fed up of being told what the “class struggle” is and isn’t?
We are too and so we put together this booklet about it.
BEYOND THE ‘MOVEMENT’- ANARCHY!
From Dark Matter and 325 associates

‘August 2011 Revolt: Anarchy in the UK’ contains a rough chronology of events during the rebellion, and action communiques during the period from anarchist groups aiming to deepen and extend the conflict, as well as a couple of essays written after the main events analysing the nature of the revolt and prospects for the future.

Report of Demo at Brixton Prison, 21 August……41
Letter from fugitive anarchist Badger……………..45
The Struggle Against the Existent Continues…….49
DON’T PANIC::DON’T TALK anarchist poster……..62
Thousands have been locked up since the insurrection, police chase many others, and the state seemingly have social consensus from the mass of citizens for a more fascist Britain, but the fresh blast of freedom has filled our lungs and state terror won’t stop us.

Off the Leash & Reclaim Your Mind: New pamphlets on anarchist individualism and cognitive freedom (Dark Matter Publ.)
Sunday, April 15th, 2012
Dark Matter Publications present two pamphlets formatted for DIY decentralised printing: “Off the Leash: iconoclastic words from Zo d’Axa, Albert Libertad, Emile Armand, Renzo Novatore, Enzo Martucci and Erinne Vivani”, a collection of rebellious thoughts that demand to leap off the page into action, celebrating unbridled freedom and the intensity of life; and “Reclaim Your Mind: An urgent message to the ‘insane’, the ‘angry’, the ‘unstable’, the ‘chaotic’, the ‘depressed’…” We conceive of the anarchist struggle as a struggle to free ourselves from the domesticating institutions and control patterns of civilization to live in chaos, free association and in all the unique expressions of liberated individuality, necessarily singular yet common. We laugh at notions of normality. We also laugh at the collectivistic group think culture and cowardice of the dreary world around us.
We give a complicit wink to the anarchist comrades of counter-info blog Culmine and translation project ParoleArmata facing state repression in Italy after the raids by carabinieri and anti-terrorist officers on the 29th March 2012 and the judicial charges of subversive association and terrorism. Like those of these anarchic individuals our words are armed words, and why? – because: (more…)

As a contribution to the anarchist struggle we publish ‘The Sun Still Rises’ by the Imprisoned Members Cell of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in an English-language version with an expanded introduction. Here we attempt to provide a chronology of the projects of the CCF, and the intersection and collectivization of diverse insurrectionary projectualities around the world (increasingly expressed as the Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front), to give those who are unfamiliar a more contextualised understanding of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and the developing struggle. We believe ‘The Sun Still Rises’ is an incisive text of the new rebellious anarchist guerilla war and this pamphlet is intended for decentralised DIY printing and mass distribution.
Direct solidarity to the imprisoned comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
