01. Volxsturm - Forever and for eternity
02. Volxsturm - Ich habe die strasse gesehn
03. Harrington saints - Factories
04. Harrington saints - Put your boots back on
Released by Longshot in 2009.
The fact that Longshot is the most active recordlabel in the modern US Oi! scene is sort of alarming since it doesnt represent the scene in any way (except releasing the odd Noi!se album). With all the shit they press and release year after year (OFC, Razors in the night) most people without the time or intrest to digg a little bit deeper think this is the modern American Oi! sound. With all the great unsigned bands that Vulture and American Defence left in their demise its a bloody shame and the reason why people say "You mean you like streetpunk" when you say you like American Oi!.
The album is somewhat saved by Harrington saints last song which is a great tune but the rest of the record just sound fucking weak in all sorts of scales (depending on what you listened to before putting this EP on). Me myself i was listening to the excellent hardcore EP by Battered Citizens from 1989. If this is what Oi! is 40 years on i will gladly leave Oi! behind and go listening to 80's hardcore in the future.
