1995 – 2003 (8 years)
One Minute Silence were a four-piece band that combined influences from metal, hardcore punk and rap. The band consisted of vocalist Brian 'Yap' Barry, guitarist Massimo Fiocco, drummer Eddie Stratton and bassist Glen Diani. The band announced its split after eight years in a press release dated October 21, 2003.
Although they claimed not to be a "political band" — they are simply "political people" who are also musicians, they say — the group's lyrics have a political message which can be interpreted as generally anti-capitalist and anarchist.
Post One Minute Silence
Since One Minute Silence, Yap began to write and perform new material as a slam poet and public speaker. The new material began to grow into a music project when he met producer John Hendicott and vocalist Donna Williams in 2005. A new band, Pink Punk was formed and in 2006 the debut album ZOO POLITICS emerged as an independent release on FREEPORT RECORDS. The band's web site, www.ppunk.com went live later in 2006 and by the end of the year the album hit iTunes, Napster and more than 700 digital retailers world wide through Universal Digital and IODA (USA).
