Formed in 1979, MDC are one of the longest-lasting hardcore bands still touring. And frontman Dave Dictor is one of the most enduring, selfless vegans, who is a name check for any band in punk or hardcore. Dave talks to Faye live from Vegan Camp Out about how his love of animals will never abate and how easy it is to be vegan now.  

In this conversation Dave and Faye discuss topics, such as: 

  • His band talking about social and political issues and why it’s important  
  • The importance of sharing animal rights and vegan causes  
  • How people who said they would never be vegetarian end up having vegan kids 
  • How he loves being around vegans and the message
  • From lettuce, brown rice and beer on tour, to having anything he wants
  • How he still gets exciting about being a frontman 44 years on
