Harrington saints (introduction)
(Update 15 July 2012: The band is NOT from the Southbay as stated below but actually from the San fran area of Eastbay. Insert mocalate sippin and artschools where palmtrees and economic schools is written.)
Oi!/Streetpunk band that started back in 2005 around the Southbay of California. This might not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking about an Oi! movement with their fancy and prestigeous economic's schools and palmtrees but i guess everything must have it's counterculture.
The band almost crosses of every checkpoint on my shitlist with their connections to Lars Fredriksen and their hybridsound of Oi!/streetpunk but one can't shake the fact that they actually record some pretty good songs. Most of their lyrics poke around in the same shithole that Pressure Point used to do (blaming their government for everything without giving a solution to anything) and most of their stuff tend to sound more streetpunk than Oi! but through all their releases they have somehow come to charm me. Teir releases are numerous for a band that's only been around for 7 years with 2 full-lengths, 3 EP's, 3 splits and still counting. The band just released their latest album called Pride & Tradition produced by Lars Frederiksen (mjääh) and are planning a European tour.
The members are Darrel Wojick on vocals, Mike C. on lead guitar, Jayson Shepard on rhythmic guitar, Mike "Deuce" Miller on bass and Forrest Maestretti on drums.
