Lies, Damned Lies And Skinhead Stories
Lies, Damned Lies And Skinhead Stories was originally released in the year 2000, and thus brought some of the much needed, old UK sound into the new millenium. This proverbially long-awaited debut album appeared after two roaring demo releases (the early Cider Lane 77 and the exquisitely rough Steel-Toe Anthems) and is packed with a bunch of top notch Oi!- singalongs that have since made their way into the classic canon of the scene. Songs like Lionhearts,Gods and Laws and many others are gritty street punk classics that will make any boot boys' heart pound with pride. With tracks like We're their Target and A Movement, the band successfully reinterpreted some of their earlier work. Most notably, the album also includes the band's most controversial I hate Hippies, a song that has since developed a life of its own, even beyond the streetpunk scene. Lies, Damned Lies And Skinhead Stories is an absolute Oi!-classic that ranks among the best debuts of all times, no less. These bootboy chants are both catchy and kicking, featuring authentic, tongue-in-cheek lyrics on Way Of Life, hooliganism and ...well, pizza, evidently. A rough-around- the-edges sound make this release a must-have for anyone into old-school streetpunk.
