This is a live set we did at a Festival. We have not added anything this is exactly as it went out on the night . Although essentially the same songs as the studio versions in our opinion the live versions are much better and are now on the 'No Surrender' Live album. By the time I got to 'This is England' my voice was knackered, but far from detract it just seemed to give more passion to the song.
All songs written by Anglo Saxon.
1. Are you Ready.
2. This thing called Rock & Roll.
3. When Daddy comes marching home.
4. Lest' we Forget. 7/7.
5. The War Machine.
6. Which side are you on ?
7. This is England.
These are just a few of the messages that make it all worthwhile.

" Hello, I am currently serving in the Kings Royal Hussars. I just want you to know I love your music. I've just recently got back from Afganistan and we were constantly playing your music. We are all proud of bands like you and we would love for you to keep it up. We all know deep down we shouldnt be in this war but at the end of the day we are and we can't do much about it so hearing u guys really makes us feel better and proud. Thanks for your music. Please write back, thanks for your time, keep it up." - Marc, Wiltshire

" I'm heading off to the Royal Marines myself in a few months and I confess your song ' You want to be a Marine ' has given me so much encouragement to push forward and make it. Its good as a forces candidate to see people supporting us, though we don't do it for the support in the end. 'A soldier makes the sacrifice so that others may enjoy the freedom to critisise him and his choices in safety'. You've really helped me achieve my dreams. Sincerely, for all your patriotic work - Mathew, Royal Marine Officer Cadet

" This is a truly great patriotic band that needs to be heard! ANGLO SAXON are one of the most musically gifted songwriters I've ever heard. What they do with this god given gift, is keep the dream alive that this politically demoralised government are trying to take away from us, and that's our identity. That's what the English and the British people should fight for. They play from the heart and that's what makes them special. So we should listen! THIS IS ENGLAND is a song worthy of a priceless monet painting. There is only truth in this musical masterpiece! its there in front of your face. believe it or not the truth is in the answer. ANGLO SAXON are one of the few bands that WILL STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR WHAT WE SHOULD ALL SAY!!!!!!!!!!! this is a band we should be proud of. WHEN DADDY COMES MARCHING HOME! listen to the words 'sent to fight in a foreign land for reasons we don't understand'!!!!!!!!! do we? ANGLO SAXON are an amazing talent, that blows the mind and body away, patriotic to the core but the music means so much. ANGLO SAXON make me proud to be ENGLISH. Do me a favour listen to them and believe... . . . . . . . . . THIS IS ENGLAND....... BE PROUD...... GOD BLESS ANGLO SAXON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
