One Minute Silence
One Minute Silence is a four-piece band based in London that combined influences from metal, hardcore punk and rap and as of 2010 they have sold over 500,000 albums. The band consisted of vocalist Brian 'Yap' Barry from Templemore, Co. Tipperary, guitarist Massimo Fiocco from Limerick City, drummer Eddie Stratton and bass guitarist Glen Diani. The band announced its split after eight years in a press release dated 21 October 2003. The band officially reconvened, minus Stratton in 2011. Although it 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.
