Oh it just gets no better than this ! Even my friends who aren't into punk love this album. It careens forward like a rabid pull, the playing is exactly as sloppy as a great punk band should be. And some of the lyrics can be so stupid they just may put you on the floor laughing. But it's fun fun fun. Produced by the Greatest Dope of All Time, Jimmy Pursey, and he does it WELL. It sounds like four football hooligans have just come crashing into your living room to play some songs for you. It gets a tiny bit wearing by side two; there's only so much velocity a man can take. But then they close with the utterly fantastic "Where The Hell Is Babylon" ? I always preferred British Oi to American hardcore. I knew most of the bands were being unfairly tarred as fascists and about 95% were no such thing. There was more music than just "look how fast we can play", which I got sick of real quick. And this album is a cornerstone of the fun which was Oi

Hey strohsack, did you buy this new back in the day? Is the poster an A2 sized colour shot - from Top Of The Pops - of the band? Just wondering if it's the poster that came with vol.2 instead (shoved in my mistake?)?
