Booze & Glory – “London Skinhead Crew”
We’ve got a special RECORD STORE DAY edition for you to check out!
It’s not common for a punk video to get 10 MILLION VIEWS, but that’s what this fantastic tune has done. BOOZE & GLORY’s “London Skinhead Crew” has been pressed on this special DIECUT vinyl featuring both the reggae and original version of this track. And while a picture speaks a thousand words, especially with impressive pieces of art like this, it’s also important to note that BOTH SIDES PLAY FROM THE INSIDE OUT, making it even more special! Pressed on “GOLD” for the band, “RED” for Record Store Day, and “BLACK” for Pirates Press Records, you can’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind record!
———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
As one of the flag bearers in modern Oi!, The Old Firm Casuals are no stranger to amazing vinyl. With Pirates Press Records joining rank on this repress, they’ve decided to take it up a notch. Available on both black and “camouflage“ style vinyl, they have reworked the original insert into a proper jacket, and turned Tim Lehi’s etching from the first pressing into a silver silkscreen on this one. Grab one from the band’s merch table or over at Pirates Press Records!
Originally released on Oi! the Boat Records in 2011, The Old Firm Casuals’ debut kicker of a 7” was the one obvious component left off “For The Love of It All”, the 2xLP/CD compilation that brought together all of the band’s early singles. In many ways, that was intentional – because this release deserves it’s own royal treatment. With all four tracks on the A-Side, and Dannyboy Smith’s art from the original insert silkscreened on the B-Side (so it shows through while on the turntable), this 12” makes the tracks sound better than ever, and one hell of an impressive art piece to celebrate a band that has become truly integral to the scene.
CRIM’s 2017 LP “Blau Sang, Vermell Cel” (“Blue Blood, Red Sky”), received rave reviews, and (along with a LOT of touring) has really spread this band worldwide, helping them develop an extremely devoted and passionate fanbase. The two original songs on this EP truly exemplify what this band is all about, and the reason why so many people are excited about them. This year will mark their first venture over to the USA to tour as well, with a bunch of dates on the west coast in addition to Punk Rock Bowling. This 7” is pressed on “SWAMP GREEN,” “ULTRA CLEAR w/ BLACK SMOKE,” “BLOOD RED w/ BLACK SMOKE,” and “PISS YELLOW w/ RED SPLATTER” so grab one of each!
Check you next week!
