Bovver 96 - Ghetto Oi! 7'' (1996)

01. Ghetto Oi!
02. Remember the day
03. Clockwork chameleon
04. 96

Released by Steelcomb Records in 1996.

Classic Oi! band from Philadelphia that had a female vocalist. Where around in the glory days of Us Oi! in the mid 90's. The band consister of Jersey Diabla aka Diedre on vocals, Juston on bass, Andrew on guitar and Jeff on bass (left the group in 1998 and was replaced by Nick).
Some of the members later went on to form The breaker boys.

I dont usually like punkbands fronted by a female vocalist since most of them never produce that intense anger that a good vocalist needs (with some exceptions). Diedre on the other hand must have constant PMS and could even shout the shit out of Roger Mirret.
Best track is Ghetto Oi! that is a song to infiltrators in the scene and an anthem to all dirty skins that live the life instead of dressing up as if they did.
Even if its not the best they have released its a solid first release.

  1. Cool band and definitely cool people. I had the first two EPs. We used to see them a lot at shows in New Jersey (the Pipeline Club in Newark) and in NYC in the mid 90's.

  2. Pleeeeease reupload. I can't find this album anywhere else. :(
