Broken heroes - Media blowout 7'' (1994)

01. Why must the good die young
02. Skinhead
03. Media blowout
04. Overnight love affair

Released by Headache records in 1994.

A little line-up change for these recordings. Pete Joerger (from Vibram 94) is now doing guitar instead of Regis. Pete is one of the longtime members and also one of the pillars that made the band stay together for all this time.
This is their second release on Headache records and it would actually take 10 years until they released something new through the label (well almost 10 years for any kind of real release after to be true). The band didnt release anything untill 2003 but they where far from inactive appearing on several compilation albums like Backstreets of American Oi! in 1996 and Eastcoast of Oi! in 1999.

Most of these traks would be re-released on their 2004 full-length but this is the only chance to hear them with Keven on vocals. Also the only recording that the track Skinhead is on.
A bit slower tempo on this record but the awesome singalong choruses are still there and in my oppinion the lyrics and themes on this recording is way better.
For you familiar with my blogg you already know how much i love piano blended into Oi! and here we have both the first and the last track offering this longlost secret to a great Oi! track. Best track on the record is Skinhead and is about the whole SHARP movement that was big in usa around this time. It is in no way an anti-SHARP message but more of an explanation that you cant solve the problem caused by the media by blamming the other guy on television shows and in papers. Left or right a skinhead is a skinhead not for or against anything. Putting a label of your beliefs and blending it in with your "life as a skinhead" only feeds the media more lies being it left or right. Following the theme is Media blowout with lyrics like "TV skins make no sense to me/they're the unwanted part of our history".
A great record but maybe not the greatest quality on the rip, but the record is oooold and since no one else has ripped it your stuck with my upload.
