One Minute Silence are almost constantly touring. Their shows include a dynamic physical element, such as stage diving from the top of amplifier stacks and carefully orchestrated circle pits helped on by the OMS Pit Krew, a group of moshers who tour with the band and ensure that the mosh pit stays safe for everyone involved.

Another element in OMS gigs is the band's political propaganda. The first time I saw them live they started a chant of "There's a nazi in the Whitehouse!" and heavily criticised Dubya's "War on Terror."

The band's website is at http://www.oneminutesilence.com. It's well worth checking out as there is a huge amount of information about the band and their political beliefs presented in an articulate and intelligent manner.
