Close Shave

Profile:
An oi! band from England.

The band started at Birmingham in 1986 under the line up: Rich - vocals, Paul (Dirk) - guitar, Neil (Lurch) - bass, Steve - drums. With this line up they played a few gigs and recorded some demo tracks and also recorded the song 'The Law' for 'The Sound Of Oi!' compilation. Rich joined the army and was replaced by Martin (Fluffy). They released their first lp in 1988 under the title 'Oi! Kinnock Give Us Back Our Rose' and in 1990 their second lp 'Hard As Nails'. Neil took the vocals duties when Martin left the band and Sid from Section 5 came to bass. They released two 7'', 'Keep On Rockin' (1991) and 'Attack' (1993), songs for 'Last Chance' (1992) and 'British Oi! - Working Class Anthems' (1993) compilations and the third-last lp 'Lone Riders' in 1992.

They reformed some time in the early 2010s with new guitarist Jedd and they continue to record and tour.

Current lineup is:

Neil (The Lurch) - Vocals
Steve - Drums
Jedd - Guitar

One of those bands who never admit to being Nazis, but somehow coincidentally play shows with Nazi bands.
