Biography

Radical Dance Faction (RDF) were founded by Chris Bowsher in Hungerford in 1986, and were originally known as ‘Military Surplus’. The band experienced many line up changes with at least seventeen different people having being part of the band at one time or another. Chris is the only person who has been in every line up of the band.

RDF’s music combines punk, dub, and ska, while Chris’ lyrics, spoken rather than sung, deal mainly with political issues, such as the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 in the song Chinese Poem. Chris also witnessed first hand the Hungerford massacre, describing his experience in the song Hot on the Wire.

RDF were a regular act on the UK free festival scene prior to the 1994 Criminal Justice Act, and were part of the crusty and anarcho punk movement until they called it day in the mid 1990’s. The band reformed in 2006 and have a few dates announced for various festivals around the UK during 2007.
