Ok so this is the point of my "blogg-carrer" where i loose a lot of readers and get a lot of new once that i never really wanted in the first place. It is also that time and place where a lot of my friends will wonder if i have completely lost it to the "dark side" and them tough kids with strong political beliefs start googling my e-mail to find out my home adress. But when shit has to be done it has to be done.
This band is one of the greatest punk bands in history and what they did for todays street punk and Oi! is something no other band from US have done. What i could have left out was that they also did songs for a compilation album with Skrewdriver, Brutal Attack and Young bloods.
I will not try to defend the guys in any way. They where pro-white, they where nationalist and they made songs with facists tendensies. Basicaly they where as far to the right you can get without becoming nazi. But this was in 1988. Fucking 88 just look at the date. Get over it.
Why i have to upload such a political band to this non political site is that the members went on to play in some of todays best ppunkbands. Both Bob Shelfer and Steve McCarthy would later go on to play in Limecell and later on in Sons of Liberty.
Their drummer Brian also played in the whitepower band Break the sword before joining this band (which doesnt really give them any more points on the PC scale).
The sound is a one of a kind (atleast back in 1988) and you can so clearly hear where a lot of todays American Oi!bands have taken their inspiration. There is not a single bad track on the album and even if i might be tired of a hard week at work and not thinking straight i think i can say that the song Dont you wish is the most most groundbreaking song ever in US Oi! history.
