best defense

best defense The band formed in Pennsylvania around 1987 with Greg Olsen on vocals, Tom Walkinshaw on lead guitar, Dave Baiter on rhythm guitar, Shawn Moyer on bass and Jim Rogers on drums.

Like most young skinhead bands they started making music that they would want to listen to themselves, but couldnt because of the very few bands around at the time.

All songs on the album are songs recorded around the 3 years the band was active a few was released on compilation albums but never on any proper release by the band.

Good old brutal Oi! with lyrics to kill. They make it clear where they stand from the first song, patriotic, anti-liberal, anti-commie, and anti-most-things.

Most tracks have a good R'n'R feeling to them and on the track "Lost Now Found" you can hear clear influences from The Misfits.

The quality of the recordings are surprisingly good considering the tapes has been laying around in a drawer in Wales 10 years before this cd was made.

Best tracks are "Armed with the Truth", "Your Defence" and "Its Time" (shouting out their cold war hate with the lyrics "Can you see the red flags rising, its time to put them in their place").
