Fagersta, Sweden in the early 80's. A small, bleak industrial town and home to a bunch of punks who were filled with the angst of the forthcoming Apocalypse of 1984 which George Orwell predicted.
It was around this time that Kerre (vocals/bass), Micke (guitar) and Hocke (drums) formed a band called Practical Joke (1981-1982), Changing the name to Fear of War in 1982. Their first rehearsals took place in the basement of Hocke’s family home.
After only 2 weeks they had their first gig in the nearby city of Skinnskatteberg, armed with only four songs which they repeated over and over again, until the usual bar fight began.
Not long after, Hocke left to join Crude S.S. and Ugly Squaws. In his place came Marko.
With inter changeable members; Fear of War, Ugly Squaws, Crude S.S. and Bedrövlers all rehearsed in the abandoned apartments called Kottmossen in Fagersta.
The “Tour in Finland 1984” included Fear of War, Ugly Squaws, Bedrövlers, Crude S.S., Anti Cimex and the Finnish band Vaurio.
Fear of War played with Disorder in Copenhagen at the “Subfestival” in 1987. This was to be their last gig before they split.
