Hard Skins: Hard Nuts and Hard C***s

Kind of an oldie here (1996) but since there is no statute of limitations on CD’s sent in for review (thanks Walter), here goes.

Hard Skins play easily the most basic, brutal Street Punk/Oi! I’ve ever heard. The chant along lyrics are some of the most cliched ever written (boozing, fighting, all cops are wankers, cockney slang and loads of Oi, Oi, Oi) and more use of the C word then I thought possible on one CD.

The big question I have and I couldn’t get it answered is. Are these guys for real? If so, I hope I never meet them in a dark alleyway or anywhere. If not, then GWAR eat your heart out this is true shock-performance rock.
