Time to honor another band which is since 1978 active, the Cockney Rejects were formed in the East End of London by brothers Jeff and Micky Geggus, with their brother-in-law Chris Murrell on bass and Paul Harvey on drums and their song “Oi, Oi, Oi” was the inspiration for the name of the Oi! music genre. To date, they have released nine albums and are also a lot on tour, especially at festivals always welcome. The violence depicted in their lyrics was often mirrored at their concerts, and the band members often fought to defend themselves (often from supporters of opposing football teams) or to split up conflicts between audience members. This slab, their third one, was recorded at Abbey Road on 25th January 1981 and fifteen classics were banned for the next punk generation. So join the Rejects my dear readers!
