Legion of Parasites were an anarcho-punk band from the 80’s based in Bedford, England.
They released a number of records throughout their time.
They apparently released their first demo in 1982, but it somehow got lost and was never properly released, and released “Deathwatch” demo in 1983, which were followed up by “undesirable guests” in 1984 before they composed their masterpiece “The prison of life” in 1985.
After that they pretty much changed their sound to a more trash metal-like on their last record “Dawn to dust”
They also released a live concert from the 100 club, and figured on numerous compilation records, as “Bollocks to the gonads” by Pax records, “Bullshit Detector vol.2” by Crass records and the “welcome to 1984” and “Anti Capitalism - anarcho-punk compilation vol.4” which chronicled up british anarcho punk during the 80’s. Both on Mortarhate records.
The members later went on to play in bands like Saints of Eden and Sick on the bus.
Rumours wants it they are to release everything they’ve ever made, and that they are gonna re-unite. but its just rumours

Members were:
Cian - Bass, Vocals
Sean - Guitar
Wag - Drums
Scott - Bass on the early works
