Released by Taang! Records in 1988 and later re-issued by Taang! on cd the same year and also later in 2002 with additional songs from earlier LP Back on the map.
With the same lineup as their EP the band went in to record their most "slapshot sounding" record to date. Much like their first LP it's dark and hard with more leanings towards an Oi!/Punk sound than the metal most others played at this time.
Right after this record Jack started Stars and stripes and the sound on the record is a somehwat pitched up version of that band basicly (though the whole bomb the middle east and kick out the immigrants bit is abscent here to).
Around this time the band was in a fued with UK band Exploited. It all started when Slapshot was going to play a show with them and decided to wear t-shirts saying Punks dead....your next and on the back it was a picture of Wattie (frontman of Exploited) with a gun to his head.
Exploited found out before the show and called the ones behind the gig that kicked Slapshot from the show.
Exploited got some crap from Slapshot hangarounds on comming gigs but the band themselfs never went any further than making a record threat. Thereoff the "No thanks to: Wattie (we'll get you) writen on this records sleeve.
Best songs on the record are Chameleon, No friend of mine, Enforcer, In your face and the classic Hang up your boots that has been covered by both Discipline and The business.
