Captured from the wilderness, to maintain exploitation
Greed with no limit, turns to violation
Jungles robbed of species, create a sensation
Used for our amusement, they grab our attention.

OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI

Offsprings used as Guinea Pigs, for experimentation
Observed on a monitor, locked in isolation
Helpless but to submit, to all degredation
Deprived from their freedom, living in humiliation

OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI

Genetically altered to fit human consumption
It means more profit, where there's more production
Given away as tokens, only to meet rejection
Wandering the streets, yearning for affection

OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI, OI

CAPTURED FROM THE WILDERNESS

KEPT IN ISOLATION

Here was a band with a genuine social message.  It was only a matter of time until I discovered they were active in animal rights issues and had even an animal rights song.  Subculture are not the type of band which sings about useless topics or endless love songs, though, as Crass say in Yes Sir, I Will, "In attempts to moderate, they ask why we don't write love songs.  What is it that we sing then?  Our love of life is total, everything we do is an expression of that, everything that we write is a love song".  This perfectly describes the Subculture lyrics.

Musically, I would put Subculture in the anarcho-punk genre, which is not saying much though, since the

Subculture - the band, the movement.

Myself having become a vegetarian and an animal rights activist in the late 1980's through the anarcho-punk movement, from listening to bands like Crass, Conflict, A Flux of Pink Indians, Poison Girls, Karma Sutra and the like, Subculture immediately struck a chord with me.  Here was a band which was not in it for the money, for popularity or just for fun.

anarcho-punk movement is influenced by several music genres, though the music is often loud.  But to anarcho-punk bands, it's the message which counts most.
