01. Shadows of swastikas
02. Make the leaders fight (Special forces cover)
03. Common man
04. The hard way (United blood cover)
Released by Cheetah's Records in 1999.
Around the same time that Orlando was in United blood he and UB member Israel Branson branched of into this sideproject. Adding Erik Thomas on drums and Ryan P.Allen (that later played in Reducers SF) on guitars they did some shows and as far as i know only released this one EP.
Not in any way as good as United blood this is still some raw and straight forward Oi! that i think most modern skins around the world has never heard before.
Intrepid A.F.F. stands for Intrepid (basicly means big battleship) Against All Facist and starting the record of with Shadow of swastikas its not hard to figure out on what side of the political scale they stand. The song is about the latent threat of a facist takeover, unlike most other songs from US its not the big bad red threat but this time the blackshirts that are he target of fear. Great lyrics and all but after watching the last Washington Racemarch on youtube that had 120 nazis from across US marching and over 10.000 people manifesting against them i think that Orlando's fear is more built on AFA horror stories then on real life. A good song nevertheless.
Another great song on the EP is Common man about lifestory of a working man. The lyrics has all been heard before and its so Oi! cliché that you just have to love it.
This band wasnt around for long but it still somehow lives on today through Orlando and Israel that play in United Intrepid Forces playing United blood, Intrepid A.A.F. and Special forces songs together with Dave Chavez from Verbal abuse and Gabe from Oppressed logic. All i know this band was the closest thing one could get to a reunion of any of the old bands and that they did some show/shows back in 2006. Dont know if they are still around today though.
Sold out everywhere.
