01. Templars - War heroes
02. Bottom of the barrel - We won't forget
Released as a free EP with the 4th issue of the Oink! Skinzine in 1997.
This is probably as good as it can get.
Templars has the A-side and delivers a great version of (to me) one of their best song ever. This band has always impressed me and even if it is so unlike most other US Oi! it sort of personifies the 90's sound. I get a lot of mails about adding this band (and YDL) and i will do it soon. Both bands have released so many records and has a huge history so it's not really something i can do while having 2 hours free on a sunday. Be patient.
Bottom of the barrel also delivers even if it's nowhere near as good as the A-side. Their song has sort of the same theme as War heroes about sacrifice and rememberance. A great themed EP that speaks to me with it's non blind patriotism. A healthy waving of the flag without any sight of other banners anywhere nearby.
