Underrated and forgotten band that even i can admit was a bit uneven from song to song but still rise way above some of todays celebrated oldschool US acts.
The first 12 songs was part of a file i downloaded back in 2005-2006 in think. It was called "Down the tables at Morey's" and i aint got a clue if this was an actual release or not. The other tracks was songs i downloaded from the the bands old website (dont think it's up anymore).
The bands resemblance to the band Counterattack can be heard on the first tracks and especially the song Army of hooligans. A great song with lyrics like "Commies to the left and nazis to the right, they all try to exploit my kind/We dont need your soapbox politicians to tell us whats on our minds"
Also influences from bands such as Squiggy can be heard on the song Facts of life and just like most other songs this one is about working class life. When not singing about smacking up commies/nazis and working hard they come back to the subject of drinking. The best drinking song of them all is Hard drinking nights where they get a bit more rock'n'roll and almost sound a bit like early Bovver wonderland.
Just like the singer from Fatskins and Counterattack their vocalist has a distinct way of delivering the lyrics. Most times he pulls it of but on some songs he just sounds retarded.
A band that has been forgotten today (except for Total annihilation that did a cover of their song Bring it back). I think its sad because the band really stood out in many ways so if anyone knows what happened to the members after the band let me know.
