Intro

An original UK Punk act, who also helped create "Oi!" Punk.

They're an English Punk/Oi! band formed out of The South Shields in 1977.

They espoused an anti-fascist and socialist working class philosophy, and were heavily associated with the Skinhead subculture.

Over twenty years after its release, their debut single, "The Murder Of Liddle Towers", was deservedly included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.
