01. We'll win the fight
02. Bottom of the barrel
03. Kids today
04. Punks not grunge
A classic NY band and another one of those that never really got the recognition they deserved. A band consisting of various loose ends and drinkingpartners from the backstreets of the Long island area.
They where around in the mid 90's and even if they only had one proper release (a split with Templars) they still made their mark.
The band had loose members but their singer stuck it out from the begining to the end, namely Gerrard who now sings in 45 adapters. Other members of fame was Kevin Geddes who later played in Oxblood (and met his demise last year), the Swede J.H who played bass in Agent Bulldogg also picked up the bass for this band at a couple of shows.
These songs never had a proper release (track 2 was on a Helen of Oi! comp though) but they are all of the highest quality and the first song We'll win the fight is up there on my top-20 favourite US Oi! songs (gotta love those drums). With a skilled vocalist like Gerrard i have a hard time seing how this band never made it bigger than they did.
Top songs. Top top band.
