Paul from Anarchistwood still missing – can you help?Paul from Anarchistwood still missing – can you help?

Despite social media appeals, missing persons agencies and the punk community doing everything they can, Paul from London band Anarchistwood is still missing.  He disappeared on 14 November and his family are desperate for any news or clues as to his movements and whereabouts…

He is thought to be in London but there is a possibility he travelled to Yorkshire.

Paul Hambleton, aka Candflip Blackwood works at the Camden shops Rock n Roll Rescue and All Ages Records, and at St Mary’s Hospital Paddington as well as being a hugely talented artist and musician, playing guitar and writing most of the music for Anarchistwood – arguably Londons most original and exciting Day-glo Punk band.

His partner is the band vocalist and film-maker Frank Cutter.

Pauls last known bank card transaction was in a grocery shop / minimart in Queens Road, Peckham early evening of Saturday 14th November 2020 and his last phone signal was in the W1 area – between Marble Arch and Marylebone – just before midnight.

Paul is 48 years old, 6 foot 1, has dark blonde hair, shaved on one side and below shoulder on other – usually worn tied up. He has multiple tattoos on arms, legs and torso, including upside down pyramid on upper arm and ace of cups on inner forearm, and pierced ears.

He was last seen wearing a blue NHS Catering uniform but could also be wearing the red/black/green dragon shirt in the photo above.

He’s a Liverpudlian by birth, but lived in Yorkshire (including Hebden Bridge) for several years and has a Leeds type accent.

If you have any information which could help, please phone 101 and quote Missing Persons Ref 20MIS038210  or contact Frank Cutter via Facebook at or contact Missing

All of our love goes out to Frank and all of Pauls family.  Candi Come Home x
